Obama picks Pittsburg Steelers owner as Ambassador to Ireland (2076 hits)

Happy St.Patrick's Day to family with Irish roots! Mr. Obama's grandfather was from Irish heritage, as are many African-Americans!

Dan Rooney owner of the Steelers and whose support for our President was key in getting him elected, has been appointed. Now this may be a stretch but when Obama was asked what team he was supporting for the Super Bowl champs he did say the Steelers! I actually thought that that was odd--one reason is for years I was the only person I knew who rooted for the Steelers, since the days of Franco Harris!

It's all good--no harm done--Ambassadorships bring good will, are fun appointments and have no political position other than to make the host country look good..this no doubt strengthens even more so Obama's support in Ireland--where they have made a song called O'bama, O'hara and O'reilly!

Oh me Lucky Charms!

That said, I think Dan Rooney is a good pick. He's Irish, and that helps. Being the owner of a football team helps with the cross-cultural aspect as well, especially since what we call football here, is far different from what the Irish know the game as.
