I guess it's just a shame for my daughter, she's only 1 year old and can barely carry her own sippy cup.

Maybe in a few more years, as I plan for my trip to Canton for The Bus' induction, I can take a little extra time and stay in Latrobe.

I wonder if one of the players would let her carry their stuff (at least up to the door of the locker room)!

I saw the video on KDKA and it was so touching to watch this big man make this little guy's day! Little Zach was a little star that afternoon and just seeing his face light up when Ben asked him to carry his pads really made my day!

the contest is new this year...in previous years a couple of players would come over to the Steelers Experience registration tent to sign autographs for the kids but it just got too chaotic. this year whenever a kid is registered for the Experience they are also entered into the drawing to help one of the players with their equipment...yesterday was the first day and it seemed like it was a big hit


I dont know if anyone heard about this (or if it was already posted...sorry if it was!) on Sunday Ben was signing autographs for the fans and there was this little boy that was being pushed up against the fence so Ben pulled him out and let him carry his stuff...thought that was really cool of him, I'm sure it made the little boy's day (or year lol) as well

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

That was great for the kid. I'm sure that kid will remember that day as long as he lives. Gotta love stories like that.

A very cool and classy thing to do by Ben. I think this accident of Bens will prove to be a very good thing for Ben in the long run. I don't think he'll take football for granted now and will work even harder to become the best player he can be.
