Dan Rooney Named Ambassador to Ireland. Is it because he campaigned hard for Obama or because he signed Sean McHugh? THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW!
In other hot fucking news I named myself ambassador to my toilet in which I will shit in later and then violently puke in when I get home from the bars later tonight.
I know rooney has been great for pittsburgh. however, he is the typical rich socialist a**hole who endorses candidates who preach socialism and punitive taxation. Yet, he hurried to take advantage of Bush’s attempt to rein in the death tax by negotiating with his brothers the sale of the steelers. If he loved obama’s tax policies so much, why didn’t the hypocrite wait until obama allows the death tax to revert to pre-bush levels in 2011. rooney symbolizes hypocrisy.
a life long steelers fan
it’s good to have an opinion
Here comes the poflawa……….noooooooooooooooooooo!
Ross Perot – 2012
shouldn’t the PoFlaWa be on the fetish bracket somewhere?
somebody’s getting a kick out of this garbage
I would think that anyone who gets Western Pennyslvania to vote for a black candidate for President can handle something a little more challenging than being Ambassador to Ireland. What about replacing Timothy Geitner or even Ken Lewis?
Ambassadorships have been token political rewards for centuries. The chances of the U.S. going to war with Ireland are pretty slim, so basically, he just gets to hang out in Ireland a few days out of the year, and give speeches on St. Patrick’s day. I just hope he doesn’t do anything stupid like declare the Steelers to be “Ireland’s Team”.
Also, I do believe that this puts him on the U.S. government payroll, so everyone’s taxes are now supporting the Steelers.
It only takes one person to start the PoFlaWa…
“rooney symbolizes hypocrisy”
So stop celebrating the SB win out of protest. See how many Stiller fans you can get to picket the complex with you.
Rooney is in a worse position now vis-a-vis the “death tax” no matter what turns in 2011. He’s mortgaged whatever equity stake he has in the Steelers up to his eyeballs in order to retain control after the purchase.
So will Dan work towards getting us cheaper Guinness pints and at least one new U2 cd that’s not pretentious and sucks ass?
If the Irish knew just how badly we screwed them over by selling phony paper to their banks, yeah, they might rather bomb us than each other.
But I guess we got a lot of catching up to do when it comes to screwing over the Irish.
And TTGT continues his futile attempt to deflect charges of racism away from Boston. Presumably while signing a restrictive covenant.
You guys are all jealous because we have Six trophies.
/raises pint of Guinness to Dan Rooney, the finest owner in professional sports
At this very minute, Rooney is laying on his bed with his foot on the ground to stop the spinning.
I also heard, and it may be just one of those Internet rumors..but Billy Belichick is to be named ambassador to Massachusetts
Christmas Ape, I’ve always been one of your biggest fans (Marmalard, Hines Wald, et al). However your Steelers homerism is becoming almost insufferable at this point. And its not even that I dislike the Steelers. As a USC alum, I love Polamalu. Its just that it seems that I’m beginning to smell the symptoms of the same disease that has inflicted the Sawx/Paytreeuts Nation since they won their first couple of championships.
An Ambassadorship to Ireland would be a sweet gig. You wouldn’t have to do any real work as a diplomat; America and Ireland love each other and have strong trading relations. You’d get top-notch booze, golf trips, great music, fiery colleens…
The worst part is that you’d have to endure the Irish dancing demonstrations, tour sweater-making factories, make St. Paddy’s Day speeches about the “unique relationship between our two lands” and tip-toe around the Catholic-Protestant thing. That’s a lot more fun than being the Ambassador to Saudi Arabia.
I’m beginning to smell the symptoms of the same disease that has inflicted the Sawx/Paytreeuts Nation since they won their first couple of championships.
Odd, I don’t remember saying the Steelers have smarter fans who can will their team to victory like no other, so I fail to see the connection.
How do you smell symptoms?
It’s easier once you get the panties off, Stu
Many diseases have smellable symptoms. For instance, alcoholism and diarrhea.
Alcoholism and diarrhea are symptoms of being a Steelers fan.
Who cropped the photo of Father Jack?
boy, the racism sure is flying here during the off-season
/yesterday i scanned the Travis Henry post comments
//regulators, mount up
///wish i had more time this month
racism and poflame-ism, that is. i guess it’s not racist when white people irrationally hate other (irish) white people
Enjoy Ireland Dan Rooney
“Generational wealth = BAAAD.” Eat a dick haters, how else am I supposed to become a member of the Upper-Upper class?
