Patrick Rooney Sr., a Pittsburgh Steelers co-owner who lives in West Palm Beach, Fla., has endorsed Republican Sen. John McCain for president.
Rooney's brother, Steelers co-owner and Chairman Dan Rooney, has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama.

"I know that America's future would be best guarded by a true hero and patriot -- John McCain," Patrick Rooney said in a statement.

"My family has been blessed and is fortunate to have lived the 'American Dream,'" he said. "Senator McCain offers the best hope for every citizen of this great nation to achieve this realization as well."

Both Rooneys are sons of Arthur J. Rooney Sr., the Steelers' original owner.

Nothing like a political feud amongst family members. I'm sure they'll sit back at a family dinner laughing about this.
