Big Ben turns to pro wrestling

Oh, no.

The Steelers are in trouble.

And it's not because they are 1-2 heading into Sunday night's game against the San Diego Chargers.

I'm worried about Ben Roethlisberger.

Last night, it was announced that Big Ben will be the guest host of a WWE event in Wilkes-Barre.

Can you say bad timing, Ben? Awful decision?

Coach Mike Tomlin said he was aware of the news but he didn't have a comment.

He can't be pleased that the franchise QB will be involved with pro wrestling a day after a prime time game against the Chargers.

And if the Steelers lose ... well, you can guess what the howls and screams will be like. On top of that, can you imagine what would happen if Ben gets hurt?

This has the makings of a week-long distraction, or worse.

The only way to end it is to win Sunday.

On a different note, anyone have any ideas what type of nicknames they'll use for Big Ben?

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
