Yep...

and also, I am sure Rooney sees what Obama has done as part in parcel to what Rooney has tried to do with minorities in the NFL. I understand the connection, though I personally don't think there was a need for it.

So take it for what it was. A nice shout out from an old man across cultural boundaries to a president.

...I can think of another reason, though it's a rather unlikely one that it would be Rooney involved.

Some of the gambling websites out there will let you bet on just about ANYTHING during the Super Bowl -- who will make the first touchdown, the opening coin toss...who the MVP/etc. will thank at the end of the game.

Seriously, I saw this bet on Bodog for last year's Super Bowl. The big favorite was that the winning team was going to thank God, with the next under that being they were going to thank their teammates.

Step 1: Place the maximum allowable bet on a longshot for the "who to thank" bet. Possibly do so from multiple accounts as to override the maximum that is enforced on such prop bets.
Step 2: Have a friend in high places tell Steeler players/people involved with the Steelers to thank that person when they win.
Step 3: ?????
Step 4: PROFIT!

Just as I suspected, dodge the issue. Remind you of someone?

It's the president calling

Tomlin couldn't quite hear PresidentBarack Obama on the telephone after the game, but would they get a chance to talk before the Steelers make the ceremonial Rose Garden visit?

"I don't know whether or not I'll get a redo," Tomlin said. "Based on what I hear, he's a busy guy.

"Just very surreal, a very humbling experience to be a part of that," Tomlin added of the conversation between the first African-American president and the second African-American coach to win a Super Bowl, two years after Tomlin's mentor and former boss Tony Dungy of Indianapolis. "It's what you dream about. It's amazing not only as a coach, but just as a citizen. It was great ...

"I heard very little, very little of what he said. I let him know that. I said, 'Mr. President, I can't hear what you are saying, I appreciate your call, I appreciate your congratulations,' and I handed the phone back to Mr. [Dan] Rooney."

Hey if Dan wants to thank Obama, as long as the Lombardi's keep rolling in he can thank Barney and the tooth fairy too!

However unneccesary it might have been, I don't have a problem with it. Football has become "America's" game. Obama is our president, glad to see he enjoy's the game, and rooted for the Steelers instead of copping out and not choosing sides.
