As promised, Ben Roethlisberger sat down with two of his biggest cheerleaders, sycophantic media types Sally Wiggin and Bob Pompeani. The talks about what you would expect from stations who are in bed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, although I congratulate Wiggin on not doing the interview while sitting on Ben’s lap as I’m sure her station would’ve liked. Of course, Big Shady refused to answer any specific questions about the rape sprees incidents in Georgia and Reno so don’t expect any more lies details on that front. Instead you can listen to Ben demonstrate what a remorseful and deep-thinking person he is by comparing himself to Superman and quoting TobyMac (A Christian hip hop singer. Nicely done.) song lyrics.
I had an overwhelming urge to point out some of his more laughable statements, such as saying his behavior “was the result of being young, dumb, and immature…” when WAS insinuates these problems happened in the past (his latest assault was less than four months ago) and I would hardly call 28 years old young enough to excuse frat boy hijinks. But I digress.
I will simply point out that if he was such a great teammate all these years (as some of the blind Ben-Worshipers have argued) then why did he apologize for being a lousy teammate? And if he was such a victim of vicious smears by the public at large, why did he apologize for his poor public behavior? Finally, if everything was so peachy in his world and he was simply the target of scheming women, why does he feel compelled to change his life from this point forward?
I hope he follows through on his plan to find religion and become more of a Christian gentleman worthy of wearing the uniform of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have my doubts but this is the first step he’s taken in the right direction.
