Default Baby Ben Arrives

I suppose there was no way Ben would avoid drama about this

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who rarely has been known to shy away from a dramatic story line, said before the season started that, if his wife is in labor on game day, he won’t be playing....

But he wouldn’t say when the baby is coming. During an interview on Friday’s edition of The Dan Patrick Show, Roethlisberger hinted that it’s happening in a couple of weeks.

As Dan pressed for clues on what the baby’s name will be, Roethlisberger held firm. “I’ll let you know in like two weeks,” he said, laughing.

In nine days, the Steelers host the Ravens.

Roethlisberger reiterated that he’ll be present for the birth, even if it means missing a game. As we explained Thursday, the decision ultimately is the players to make. He said that his teammates, coaches, and owner fully support him.

If it happens, we hope Steelers fans will support him, too.

Ravens fans definitely will

The irony is that he has been forgiven for the motorcycle accident and sexual assault allegations but might catch some heat if he misses the Ravens game and the Steelers lose

FWIW I am with Ben on this
