Obama and the Steelers

Not only did Obama get the important Steelers endorsement from Dan Rooney that, no doubt, helped him in the PA Primary (see BJ if you don't believe me) but now Obama is making the right choice for the Superbowl:
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette said in today’s edition that Obama has a game ball from their victory in the AFC championship game Sunday over the Ravens. Dan Rooney and his son Jim personally delivered the football to Obama Monday night in Washington, D.C.

Obama also met with Dan and Jim Rooney in a separate room at the Hilton, where the pair gave him the game ball. “He’s a Bears fan first, he admits that,” Dan Rooney said yesterday at the Steelers UPMC training center. “But he’s a Steelers’ fan. He’s said it, and all his staff, they’re rooting for us [in the Super Bowl].”
Can he do no wrong? (note: I am joking)

Late Update (March 2009): Holy cow - Obama nominates Dan Rooney as Irish ambassador. Obama is a gracious guy!
