Presidential Politics, Steelers Style

A couple of months ago Republican Presidential candidate John McCain discussed how he recited the names of the Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive linemen in order to confuse his North Vietnamese captors.

While flattering to fans of the Steelers, it turned out to be a slip of the tongue by Senator McCain ~ the team that he actually was thinking of was the Green Bay Packers.

Now comes a new story in which Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee Joseph Biden recounted a kindness extended to his (then) young sons, at a time of crisis, by then Steelers running back Rocky Bleier.

Whomever you may support in the presidential election, this story is genuine and touching.
