Hats way off to Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney. Most owners treat players like chattel. Yet Rooney says he won't try to change Ben Roethlisberger's contract to add a "no motorcycle riding" clause. He apparently assumes that Big Ben will respond to his horrendous accident like an adult—and presumably behave in a prudent fashion. This little sports news item really made an impact on me.
Touchdown, Dan Rooney.* (*Probably no surprise—the Rooneys have long been exemplary owners.)
