This surely isn't bad international PR for the NFL... and good for our country (whether or not it was part of an "informal" political deal involving the support this long-time Republican threw Obama during the Presidential campaign)...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney sworn in as ambassador to Ireland
ESPN: NFL (02.07.2009 12:37)
Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney is making his first official trip as U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, one day after being sworn in by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

As those of you who hang around here know, I think this is GREAT news that the Pro Bowl will be relocated back to Hawaii.  I suppose I'm ambivalent as to when it is played.  I guess it's better ratings-wise to have it the week before the Super Bowl, but I still don't like that Super Bowl participants can't then play in it.  In any event,... from "The REAL Feed":
 
Next year's Pro Bowl to be played in Hawaii before Super Bowl XLV
NFL.com (02.03.2010 17:08)
The 2011 Pro Bowl will be played a week before Super Bowl XLV and return to Honolulu, Hawaii. The game will be televised live on Sunday, January 30 on FOX at 7 PM ET.
