New President Rooting for the Steelers?


While the country swore in a new president today in Barack Obama, it appears that the new head man may already have a team that he’s rooting for in next Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIII. Yes, according to sources, Obama is going to be rooting for the Black and Gold of the Steelers.

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].”
