Great quotes and pictures!
One minor point. There is one photo captioned as follows:
Rooney watching a Steelers game on television, Dec. 23, 1972. (Harry Coughanour/Post-Gazette)
On December 23, 1972, Franco made the Immaculate Reception on a Saturday afternoon against the Raiders. I remember because I was there and it was my birthday :-)
Mr. Rooney was at Three Rivers that day and back in those days the home games were blacked out on TV – so unless he was watching the Cowboys-49ers game that day he was not watching any football on TV
