How Does Big Ben Get Ready For The Big Game?
Answer, boozing it up and singing some Billy Joel. I know you think that this may not be how a pro QB gets ready for a game like the Super Bowl, but apparently Ben Roethlisberger needed to blow off some steam before the real preparations start.
TMZ is really trying to blow this whole thing out of proportion. Now, let me set the record straight. I do not like Ben Roethlisberger, but the dude was out at a bar with his teammates doing a little celebrating before they all get knee deep into practice and prep for the Super Bowl. I think it's only natural for someone to blow off a bit of steam and maybe relieve some stress before heading into a big situation.
Maybe he should have been a little bit more careful, especially with his reputation. Let's be honest though, if it were Drew Brees, Tom Brady or even Aaron Rodgers there is no way they are being thrown under the bus like this. Ben Roethlisberger has done some bad things, and I think he needs to atone for those. But going out with your teammates is not a crime. Most of them even say that he was in before the 1am cerfew. I hate the guy, but in this case he didn't do anything that any other guy wouldn't do. Just for fun though, here is the clip of him singing Piano Man.
