Re: Ben's a jackass...
Since when did being 25 start being an excuse for being a juvenile, arrogant jerk?
Seriously, has anyone got any stories here where they didn't start acting like an adult until they were 40 or something?
As far as the incident goes - I don't see how its possible for Ben to have not meant it as a joke.
The guy is hot and he's the Steelers QB - if those two things don't guarantee a lifetime of Saint-like behavior......then im going to have to rethink my whole outlook on life!!
Either that, or the context was all wrong....yeah, the context...thats it.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
