Thumbs up Mr. Dan Rooney is AWESOME

OK, I just wanted 2 say Mr. Dan Rooney is just awesome. I'm sure some of U guys R going "Duh, like V don't know... Next!" But I was just talking 2 my wife & she said Mr. Rooney has sent back my book with his signature on it. So exciteeed.

OK. this is what's up. I don't have any autographed thing that has 2 do with the Steelers at my home. Couple years ago, I tried 2 get Farrior's signed jersey from an eBay seller called STEEL-TOWN MEMORABILIA, but long story short STEEL-TOWN MEMORABILIA f*cked me up I got nothing after I paid my $110. Wish I could show em Mr.Rooney's book & tell em F U, now. Anyways, when I heard Mr. Rooney was becoming the US Ambassador 2 Ireland, I thought about sending him the book & ask 4 his autograph.



I was able 2 send the book about a month ago. So now I'm in Beijing & talking 2 my wife through online, she said the package was arrived from Ireland. I was thinking "Oh no, this is 2 soon. Did they refuse the mail & sent it back?" She said she peeked & saw the book was signed & there was a thank U letter from Mr. Rooney.

Sooo I'm so excited but in China. Lone excited Mongol in China who got no one else 2 talk about this, but my B&G brothers & sisters. Kaaan yooou beliiieve it? I got a book from Mr. Rooney. & with a letterrr!!! Now my family has a book that V can cherish for 5,000 years. LOL

Can't wait 2 go home & C it myself. Though I don't drink, let's drink 4 Mr. Rooney & his family. Oh & she said there was also some kind of small gift from him as well.

BTW, Y don't V have a smiley that says "Mr.Rooney is AWESOME"???

You want to say "Unbelievable!!". But it's Mr Rooney just quietly being Mr Rooney. A dignified gesture indeed.

Owners and players alike - take note.

I have a signed one, too. My hubby contacted a book store in Pittsburgh when Mr. Rooney did a signing and they had him sign one for us. Pretty cool that he did that for you! He's one class act.

I have an autographed copy too. The book is excellent and a must read for any Steeler fan. Lots of insight to the lean years. It also showed the decisions and events leading up to and through the 1970s. The greatest team of the Super Bowl era to this day.
