Dan Rooney, Pittsburgh Steelers Chairman, Kicked Out Of Giants' Press Box

Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney was kicked out of the New York Giants' press box on Saturday night.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette explained that Rooney flew in from Ireland to watch the preseason game between the Steelers and Giants. Rooney, who has made it a routine to talk to the writer before games, was ordered to leave by a press box attendant because he didn't have credentials. Rooney only had a ticket for his private box.

The Hall of Famer quietly left without saying anything.

According to Bouchette, the attendant didn't know he was kicking out the owner of the Steelers.
