Big Ben’s Bender
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.
