Rice says she won't apply for NFL post


Recommended Posts

NASSAU, Bahamas ? (AP) ? Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a big football fan,

ruled out applying for the job of NFL commissioner after Paul Tagliabue retires.


??Unfortunately, it came open at the wrong time,'' Rice said Wednesday, clearly

amused when a reporter posed the question. ??Obviously, I'm very busy as secretary of

state, and I intend to continue to be secretary of state as long as the president of the

United States will have me.''


Rice, an avid follower of the Cleveland Browns and pro football in general, has

frequently said she aspires to run the league one day. In the days since Tagliabue

announced he would retire in July, Rice's aides have said she was not interested.


Rice spoke while in the Bahamas to meet with 14 foreign ministers and the secretary

general of the Caribbean Community and Common Market, a regional trade bloc.

She's a BROWNS fan? I'm speechless. *barf*


You're a Steelers fan? I'm speechless. And she is from the Cleveland area.


I remember her saying that she was a Browns fan during the Super Bowl in front of thousands of Terrible Towels. Thats balls right there, boys.


She's a really cool woman. She should've applied. She could accomplish much more as the new Tagliabue then she ever did or will as secretary of defense of the Bush admin.


At least players on the Browns know when it's time for a haircut. :whistle
