Rooney Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award

Crosby & Cash Also Honored at Dapper Dan Dinner

PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney was honored Sunday night with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Dapper Dan Dinner.
Rooney was honored for his contributions to the Steelers and to the Pittsburgh community throughout his life.
When he was introduced, he walked down the aisle to a sea of Terrible Towels.
Rooney told Channel 11 news, "It's very humbling to receive an award that Joe Paterno and Arnold Palmer received."
When asked what he's most proud of, Rooney told Channel 11, "I think the biggest thing would be keeping the Steelers in Pittsburgh in a viable way, playing good football and realizing that the fans are why we're here, and just doing that. "
Penguins star Sidney Crosby was honored as the Sportsman of the Year, and basketball star Swin Cash was honored as the Sportswoman of the Year at the banquet.


Congrats to Dan Rooney, well deserved!

I'd rather see stories like this than non-stop coverage of white trash like Anna Nicole Smith.

He wasn't "handed the team",he had to purchase the rights to get a team in Pittsburgh and then find a place to play,a coach,and everything else.

Dan Rooney has done a lot for the city of Pittsburgh.Stuff you cannot do because you are not in the position to do so.

So don't knock the guy,he deserves the award.

wow!!! hear all along i thought , ART rooney founded the team in 1933.. lets see...the city of pittsburgh (taxpayers) forked out over 250 million for a new stadium so the rooneys can make more money....so i'm thinking anything dan has done for pittsburgh is pretty much awash. but yeah your right,until i inherit a couple hundred million dollars in assets ,i won't be funding any playground projects or receiving any man of the year awards.
