Default Roethlisberger's Last Ride

Its been a year since big ben took his final cruise on his bike, through the streets of pittburgh. his morning was filled with radio appearances and his afternoon was going to be full of commercial shoots, oh and picking up his helmet in the shop that was getting painted.

today is a good day, in that we arent remembering the life of a hometown hero that was cut short on 6-12-06. today is good that we are wondering if ben can handle the offensive load of a premier quarterback in the upcoming season, and not wondering if he will ever be able to walk again. we remember all the interceptions and games pissed away, in a below average 8-8 season, but i think i would take that over charlie batch leading us to a repeat superbowl, as ben laid in a coma.

heres to the hope and focus of the upcoming year with out the distractions of the star player in the hospital, or a coach on the brink of retirement, or radio shows, tv shows, guest appearances, etc.

as the team disbands for their summer break i hope their focus stays strong, and they carry the lessons learned from ben's casual wrecklessness with them. (and will somebody keep santonio away from south beach?)

I pray that Ben has come out of this a stronger person, and learns he cannot take life for granted and realizes how blessed he is.
