You can tell the 2 week wait for the Super Bowl is winding down because the national media has opted to make a story out of something that is no big deal.  If you go to Joe Buck’s favorite website TMZ, you can see a video of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger singing Billy Joel’s  Piano Man with his O-Line at a Dallas piano bar on Tuesday night.  He was apparently out to 1am.  Oooooohhhhh.  How is he ever going to be ready for a game that will be played 5 days later. Ben says this is the tradition for he and his Big Uglies on Tuesdays before big games.  As long as Ben’s night out didn’t involve a police report and an Offensive Tackle protecting the bathroom door, I am fine with this.  If this was Aaron Rodgers, the media would love the karaoke moment.  But, when Big Ben heads to a bar, it is a stop the presses situation.  I say no harm, no foul.  Now, if he goes out to 1am on Saturday night, that might be a problem. But, then again Max Mcgee was a Super Bowl hero with  a Celania-sized hangover.
