I know this has been covered but after a season full of T.O. errrrrr BS a story like this deserves more.

To think what this guy means to the 'mixed-racial' children in Korea is truly, truly remarkable. Could he be changing the way a nation treats hundreds of thousands of people? Hope so. Hines is the poster boy for what is GOOD not only in sports but in society. Peace. Out.

definitely. even though its a vacation for him and time for him and his mother to connect, its cool to see him going with a mission and selfless sense of purpose, not only spending time with shunned mixed race children but also speaking out about it with the grand stage hes been given.

lets hope he dont puke on the emperor or whatever like g dub sr. when he went to asia.

Hines is a great man all around.

The entire country of Korea just became Steelers fans. It's official we now have an international following.

the first George Bush threw up on an Asian leader back in the 90's. smooth, eh?


but on the topic of Hines, I agree that it's awesome to think he might be able to have an influence over the people of Korea, to help them to realize that having a mixed background isn't a bad thing.

I feel like such an idiot not knowing this shit.

Yeah Hines is a great spokesperson for multiple things. I think he's my favorite player ever in the league....next to Bettis.
