A Superbowl Question

Why on earth did Dan Rooney thank President Obama upon being presented with the Vince Lombardi trophy?

  • The president called in a pivotal play a la Richard Nixon.
  • Rooney was actually thanking the president for making him ambassador to Ireland.
  • On January 29th, the president issued an Executive Order requiring that he be thanked first at all award ceremonies, public or private.
  • It was an easy mistake to make: Rooney actually meant to thank not President Obama, but God.  (The other One from whom all good things come).  He regrets the error.
