Steeler Fans Need Signatures To Make Hines Ward Day!
There is a petition that has been started to make the first game of 2012 to be known as Hines Ward Day. The petition is to Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Mr. Art Rooney II. The petition needs 1,000 signatures and as of this writing are half way there.
If you would like to see Hines Ward sent off in a respectful manner after all he has done for the Steeler organization and fans everywhere, then make sure to sign the petition by clicking on the link below.
Here is an exerpt from the petition…..
We believe Steelers Nation deserves to be able to properly send Hines Ward off into football retirement in style, the Steelers way. Loud and proud, the fans wearing the number 86 jersey in honor of Hines’ 14 years of incredible loyalty and play for The Pittsburgh Steelers. We would like to therefore propose that the first home game of the season, September 16, 2012 should be proclaimed “Hines Ward Day” in the City of Pittsburgh and at Heinz Field. A celebration of Hines Ward’s career in Pittsburgh.
Not only is Hines Ward one of the greatest wide receivers ever, and not just of the Steelers, he created a whole new role for the wide receiver, and is known for his tackles as much as his receptions. He earned three team MVP awards, was sent to four consecutive Pro Bowls and holds two Super Bowl rings. He was also named the MVP for Super Bowl 40. Hines Ward holds the Pittsburgh Steelers all-time records for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, and is one of only eight receivers in NFL history to reach 1,000 career receptions. And let’s not forget the 12,000 yards…….

Wards May Have Retired, But He Still Has a Lot to Do
Hines Ward may be retired from football, but through Total Sports Enterprises, he is releasing several merchandise items with portions of the proceeds to help fund his “Helping Hands Foundation”. The below paragraph is an excerpt from his website….
Hines Ward Helping Hands Foundation: Born in Seoul, South Korea to a Korean mother and an African American soldier, Hines has become an international role model to children everywhere. Having persevered through many trials as a child in a single parent home, Hines has dedicated his time off the field to the betterment of inner city and underprivileged youth in the Pittsburgh and Atlanta areas. His Helping Hands U.S. Foundation focuses on improving literacy among children and will provide programs and services to better equip them for achieving and handling success in life. Abroad, his Helping Hands Korea Foundation (formed as a tribute to his mother) has targeted biracial discrimination, especially as it occurs among the children of Korea. With two visits to Seoul this past summer, Hines has already made a significant impact on the entire country of Korea by speaking out against the country’s discriminatory practices and by pledging his time and allegiance to the biracial children there. Indeed, with his dedication of both “heart and soul” to his Helping Hands cause both here and abroad, Hines Ward is considered by many to be the world’s “Ambassador of Hope” to children from all walks of life.
