Big Ben opened up to the media yesterday while at the Steelers’ mini-camp that he just rejoined this week. He seemed humble although not as humbled as Tiger was at his first press conference post screwing up his life. Ben still had a little smug look on his face that someone needs to punch off of him, but physically he looks the best he has in years. He actually doesn’t look like a hairy Sasquatch anymore, and actually looks a little trimmer.
He says the right things and I want to believe him, but we’ll have to wait and see if Ben Jr. can keep himself under control to really see if Roethlisberger is back on the right track. I’m pulling for a suspension reduction and a Steelers season fueled by Ben’s redemption. Bring on the Super Bowl, or at least a competitive season that doesn’t make me vomit in my own mouth and re-swallow it. Yeah! Check out the interview below. You’ve been grossed out over my sick humor…
