    When I was home for XMas, I bought a case of some Rooney Ale that was pretty good. I had no clue before the Rooney's have their own beer. Maybe they could make an Emperor Ale and donate some of the proceeds to Alzheimer research in honor of Noll?

    Even though he was never about the recognition, it's great to see that he is being recognized for all he has done.

    I like that the Steelers draft room was named after Bill Nunn before he died and the training camp fields at St. Vincent were named after Chuck Noll before he died.

    My favorite moment was seeing him chasing after a cameraman and laughing while headed into the locker room at halftime while trailing on the scoreboard. Seemed to loosen the team up a bit to come back and win in the second half.

    R.I.P. Emporer Chaz.

    It's a long story, but that was his favorite beer...or at least what he drank. Otherwise I wouldn't touch the stuff.

    hawaiian: That is a perfect epitaph. Two lines of text, one picture. No more need be said. I think he'd approve.

    I was born in 1977. I never saw a Noll coached team that was any good. However, the way my dad talked about him taught me that the word Noll meant coach. The same way Rooney means owner. I remember the news stories about him conducting the symphony. No one I knew gave a fig about the symphony until then.

    It's time we all find "our life's work."
