Football Hero Tackles Asthma

Jerome Bettis, the new Sunday Night Football in America commentator, talks about asthma, fitness, and staying healthy.


Are you excited about your new gig as a commentator for NBC's Sunday Night Football in America?
Oh, yeah! We're covering the season's kickoff, and it's the Steelers vs. the Miami Dolphins, so I get to be there as [my former team] raises the championship banners.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? How about 20?
Still positively influencing young people and working on asthma education. Twenty years? More of the same.

As a former running back, who seems fierce out on the field this season?
Willie Parker of the Pittsburgh Steelers, definitely.

And how do the Steelers look this season? Think they'll go all the way again in 2007 without you?
No question about that. No question at all.
