Did You Ever Notice That...

Every American celebrity with the last name "Rooney" is a white male over the age of 70? Mickey Rooney will be 86 next month, "60 Minutes"' Andy Rooney is 87, and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney just turned 74. Are people just not getting that last name anymore for some reason? The only young Rooney I can think of is British soccer star Wayne Rooney, who is 21.

(Oops, forgot about John Rooney, who briefly announced for the Twins in the '80s. Not sure of his age, but he's probably younger than 70.)
