The Pittsburgh Steelers will help President Barack Obama's administration promote Obamacare and the healthcare exchanges that launched last week with a multitude of glitches.
Steelers owner Dan Rooney, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and retired Steelers players will host an event at Heinz Field, where the Steelers play, on Thursday for an event.
Rooney is Obama's former Ambassador to Ireland.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the meetup is called the "Affordable Care Act education and enrollment event," and it will provide "Pennsylvanians the opportunity to learn more about the health insurance marketplace exchanges."
The Obama administration had tried to partner with sports leagues like the NBA and NFL to promote Obamacare but relented under pressure from Republicans in Congress. They have, though, started to partner with individual teams. For instance, the Obama administration partnered with the Baltimore Ravens to help residents of Maryland enroll in the exchanges.

Maybe Dan Rooney can enroll himself in an old folk's home, since he's completely ineffectual at this point.

Was a big fan of Sylvester during his rookie year, but he become oft-injured and ineffective on special teams, which is why Wilson was kept. Wilson was a good story, but guys usually spend a year out of football for a reason. Starting during week two and being released in week six is a pretty quick fall for the guy. I like what I've seen so far from Vince Williams.

They'll probably just walk back to the Rooney estate and swim in the money vault a la Scrooge McDuck.

LOL RICH PEOPLE SUCK AMIRITE TROY LONEY

I don't get the Rooney hate, or why the "young" Rooney is in for so much criticism. Its the most successful football franchise of the past 45 years. I know we are spoiled, but man.

Hmm... Rooney is using a publicly funded stadium for his own political interests.

No one sees an issue with this?

The Rooneys should sell the team to an owner that cares about winning like Bob Nutting.

So basically the Arians firing? Because the mewling of Steeler Nation over Arians' continued employment had reached a fever pitch, and it probably was time to move on.

I find it hard to believe that his management style deviates all that much from his father's. An occasional meddle here and there with the primary focus being on hiring the right people -- Colbert, Tomlin -- to make 99% of the football decisions. Other than Arians/Haley issue, and assuming that this was a firing and hiring from on high which isn't even clear, what "hands-on" decision has he made on the football side of things?

Owners are definitely not the problem. The Rooneys are too busy counting their money and fighting the city over who pays for expansion to Heinz field to distract the team's operations.

I only like bringing in Wil Allen if it means they are cutting Ryan Clark.
