Rip sir.

You will forever be remembered for all you did for the franchise, for the players, for the city, for the game and for us fans. A true Steeler. Thank you.

Years ago my buddy and I were standing outside the player entrance cheering as Bettis and Cowher and others pulled up in their cars and entered the stadium on game day. We hoot and hollered. My best friend yells to bill as he's walking in, " give em hell Bill!" Cower raised his fist to the air as if his reply was hell yes. Then moments later we see Dan Rooney walking up the sidewalk right past us and others into the stadium thru that players entrance. He yelled, "Dan your the man." Dan put his hand up and waived. We were excited as hell and didn't know until later that Dan walked to the games from his house on Sundays.

We're blessed to be fans of the greatest franchise in the NFL and most thankful Dan did all that he did to make it what it is today.

RIP.

Truly a shame the last steeler game played before his death was that debacle in New England. Deserved more than that.

RIP Mr Rooney. This one stings more than I ever would've thought.

I'm guessing that he had more perspective than the rest of us when it comes to handling a disappointing loss.
