Dan Rooney was a favorite of anyone who was in or around the NFL, so we couldn't wait to catch up with him after going on the air as the Talk of Fame Network in 2014.

He was, as usual, cordial, cooperative and informative, and spending 12 minutes with him had us yearning for more. All of us knew him. All of us saw him on several occasions. And Rick Gosselin and he often collaborated and communicated on one of his ... and Rick's ... favorite topics, the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Dan Rooney died Thursday at the age of 84, and we offer our November, 2014, interview as a reminder of a football giant who already is missed.
