Read in an article .. Ben's flying out of DET to be on Letterman tonight ...

and saw on Cold Pizza that Gillette is endorsing Ben to shave the beard on the air.

Funny lol

02-06-2006, 01:48 PM
I'll be tuned in to Letterman tonight, too. Thanks for the heads-up, SGTN7.

I don't know if Ben can shave yet. He has a sore thumb.

I'm sure once he puts on that ring it will feel better. :bouncy:

02-06-2006, 02:09 PM
I bet your right!

02-06-2006, 04:05 PM
Ben is going to be one rich man this offseason.

02-06-2006, 04:47 PM
lol I have to tell my younger sister. She hates Ben's beard. She'll love watching it go.

02-06-2006, 04:50 PM
I can't wait to see him without the beard! it's been awhile lol

02-06-2006, 05:51 PM
Cool, this will be Bens' second appearance on the show.

02-06-2006, 06:00 PM
Nice what time is the show?

02-06-2006, 06:01 PM

For the old folks on the board such as myself, I recall Joe Namath got a payday from Noxema to shave off his Fu Manchu moustache in the late '60s.

My bet is Ben is getting at least a half mill from Gillette to shave tonight

02-06-2006, 07:29 PM
I can't wait....I will definately be recording it!!!!

02-06-2006, 08:38 PM
The last time he was on, he threw footballs through the window of a moving car. I think they should do it again with crybaby Holmgren in the window. What a jerk he is. His wife left the country so she wouldn't have to be with the LOSER!!!!

02-06-2006, 09:17 PM
I can't stand Letterman, yet I'll watch it tonight. It would be nice to have it on Conan instead, yet not too many want to stay up that late.

02-06-2006, 09:29 PM
Cool........I was just signing on to see if anyone heard about him being on tonight and if it was true.,thanks......rep to you sgrl7

02-06-2006, 11:21 PM
If anyone could capture this to their computer, I can host it on SteelerBlog. Just shoot me a private message.

02-07-2006, 12:02 AM
Okay so being out in sucky california, you guys will get it before. Anyone wanna post a recap for lil ol me *bats eyes*. Please pretty please with sugar and spice on top. I'll watch it anyway, but it will be cool to have a recap before I get to watch it.

02-07-2006, 12:13 AM
it was pointless, they didn't even really shave it off, they just got the clipers like in the barber shop and took a little off and that was it. i thought they'd get some shaving cream and use a one blade shaver and shave that shit off

02-07-2006, 12:22 AM
I agree Koopa...they jsut did it quick and some lady from Pittsburgh got to shave him didn't even get it all...Next time we see him it whe's superstitious and they ill be gone though...he said he hated it, but were winning!

02-07-2006, 12:24 AM
Ben handled himself well in the interview. He admitted he was nervous during the game. The "shaving of the beard" was lame, but whatever...(lol). It was nice seeing Ben, and he looked great. :smile:

02-07-2006, 12:30 AM
He did have a good interview. He said he was fine until kickoff then he got very nervous

02-07-2006, 12:31 AM
wait the shaving is not over...he's getting shaved right now!!! LOOKS LIKE WE WILL GET TO SEE HIM TONIGHT LADIES!!!

02-07-2006, 12:47 AM
Cant wait cant wait cant wait!!!! Thanks for the previews.

02-07-2006, 01:57 AM
Ben was down to a gotee when they signed off. He needs to shave it all.

The interview was good. He was calm and collected and got a lot of laughs. It was good to see him. When was the last time you felt this confident about the QB that was leading this team?

Way to go, Big Ben!

02-07-2006, 03:09 AM
Even Ben knows he didn't get that TD.....he admitted it on Letterman!!!:dang:

02-07-2006, 03:25 AM
Man that lady butchered his beard...LOL....that was embarrassing at the end when they showed him smiling and the right side of his face was all jacked up.....

Maybe I only noticed it because I wear a gotee, but....damn...... I'd be pissed!!! LOL...:dang:


02-07-2006, 04:31 AM
And for the record once again.. he said he didnt THINK he got in... he didnt say he didnt get in genious !

not that i even need to show you this or care one way or the other but here u go...


02-07-2006, 11:27 AM
Even Ben knows he didn't get that TD.....he admitted it on Letterman!!!:dang:


He said at the time he didn't think he got in and told Cowher as such. However, the photographic evidence we have....which Roeth might not have even seen yet....shows it was a TD.

Sorry.....Zorn. This one has been put to bed.
