    Re: Roethlisberger was told he was close to dying

    He's not going to do public safety ads, becuase I believe he still thinks he doesn't need to wear a helmet.

    Steelers | Roethlisberger able to eat solid foods
    Sat, 15 Jul 2006 11:56:53 -0700

    Jeremy Evans, writing for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reports Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's (head) jaw has gotten strong enough in the past seven to 10 days that he is now able to eat solid foods. In the weeks immediately following his motorcycle accident, he was limited to milkshakes and protein shakes. The limited diet caused him to lose several pounds, down to 235 pounds from his listed weight of 241 pounds. He has been working out the past two weeks and was seen running this week near his hotel in Lake Tahoe.

    He told everyone that he is going to wear a helmet. I hope he does, I hate when people have everything in life and then they waste it away



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    Man, that's crazy. I want a motorcycle. Maybe Ben will sell me one of the 100000000000000000000 ones he probably has.

    BEN DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT
    Mike Florio

    Okay, we've now seen several images of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger since he took of the KISS makeup, and we're convinced that something is wrong with his right eye.

    Apart from lingering blood in the white stuff next to the iris, his eyes don't line up like they used to. Though we're not opthamologists or optometrists -- and we haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn Express lately -- we've got a feeling that the ability to see a football field while wearing a helmet and standing in the middle of a swarm of large men with bad intentions might depend on whether the quarterbacks eyes aren't messed up in some way.

    Peripheral vision, in our view, is the key. If Big Ben has lost any of the peripheral vision in his right eye, that's a problem. Though for a right-handed quarterback the notion is that the left side is more critical because it's the "blind side," the last time we checked quarterbacks tend to look straight down the field when setting up to throw. In Roethsliberger's case, any inability to see what might be coming toward the side of the body in which the ball is held could be a big problem.

    The official (and unofficial) story remains that no one knows whether, when, and how well Roethlisberger will be able to play. But even though Big Ben looks pretty good for a guy who left a face print on a windshield last month, we won't believe that he's in football shape until we see it with our own eyes.

    Yet he won't do a public service announcement for wearing helmets...

    Steelers | Roethlisberger shoots music video
    Wed, 19 Jul 2006 06:23:00 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger helped the PovertyNeck Hillbillies shoot a music video for their single, "Mr. Right Now." "They really don't need my help in getting attention," Roethlisberger said in a statement. "I wanted to be involved with the band because of their Pittsburgh roots but, more importantly, because they are hard-working and committed to succeeding on a higher level."
