Our friend Jake from Burger Monger, Pittsburgh guy, came by Friday to pay tribute to Dan Rooney. The audio is below and clearly Mr. Rooney meant a lot to Steelers fans.
And to the team's current stars.
Dear Mr. Rooney, When we first met in 2010 you embraced me with open arms. You made me feel welcome. You looked at me as more than just another jersey number. One of the most genuine, and humble human beings I've had the pleasure of knowing. You motivated me not only to excel on the field but also in life. This season, the number 84 on my uniform will represent the 84 years you spent on this earth making an impact on the lives of others. I'll miss you my friend. Thank you for everything 💛 -AB
