Did Ben's birth mom passs away and this is his step-mom? When he points his finger toward the sky after making a good play I heard that was for his mom who died. Does anyone if that is true?

Very very cool for the O-line. It's about time they get some air time. Let's hope it's not as pathetic as the New England Pats doing the credit card commercial. But I hate those soup commercials too so a mixed response here.

Can anyone guess where Ben gets his looks?

Did you look at that photo of Ben with Mom in the link? Maybe it's just me but if they had they had the same hair I'd think they were twins.

The pointing to the sky gesture (somewhat overused) is religious.

Well, I'm sure it's better than hearing McNabb's mom scream "Let me hear your battle cry, AHHHHH!!!".

His mother died in a car crash 15 years ago.

Wow, that's too bad. I think Ben turned out pretty good in life considering that tramatic life changing experience he had to go through.

I just hope the commercials aren't as lame as the McNabb ones. Good Lord I'm sick of those. I'm stuck in Eagleland and it was a constant barrage of those stupid f'ing commercials all football season.

Hey, I liked the campbells commercials, the Geico commercials and even the Coors Light commercial with the pats (only because I thought the train looked cool). I think it'll be cool to finally see some Steelers get some ad/face/air time and some recognition for what they've earned.

Ben was 8 when his mother was killed in an accident. And when he points the sky it is to pay tribute to her.
Here is a very good article with the whole story http://www.enlaredo.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=13802809&BRD=9030&PAG=740&dept_id=226957&rfi=6

Oh man.... out here near Philly those freakin commercials would sometimes air one right after the other at every commercial break. They were shoving that soup down our throats.

Ben is also starring in a music video for the "Poverty Neck Hillbillies". Eeek.

Every other ad during the past season was that DAMN McNabb-Chunky Soup commercial.
I've learned to really hate Donovan McNabb for no other reason than those stupid commercials.

I do find it kind of amusing in the one commercial when he is doing a half prance-half run when he's trying to get away from people dressed in Browns uniforms.

Thanks for posting that article, siss. You can tell Ben was brought up well. He's very respectful and still honors his mother.
