Default just saw ben on ESPN News Nightcap

i caught the last of a conversation with jim rome which i assume will aire on his show sometime later on....i think it was just a sneak peak. he looks pretty normal and says he feels better. jim asked him if he would ever ride again and he just tried not to answer the question...but says if he ever does ride a bike again it WILL be with a helmet

he already looks ready to go, he'll be ready week one, hands down

I saw that too. He looks like he's 100% and most of my fears have been put to rest.

yup saw the same..his first interview they said was with jim rome..look for a more complete interview on sportscenter on thurs..cant believe the progress he has been able to make..when asked about if he would ride again he said that he at first thought only about his family and now that he knows he is healthy is only focused on football..sounds like he is focused and should jump back on the saddle to get ready for the coming season..seems like he will ride again at some point as he never ruled it out but least it will be with a helmet!

just saw it replayed.......apparantly he was one minute away from dying because he had slit some vein/artery in his mouth and would have died from blood in his stomach...luckily the paramedic saw it and stopped it in time. what a tragedy that would have been. but he looks ready to go, cant wait for some STEELER FOOTBALL!!!

Has that cosmetic surgery look some women have. What I thought , as I stared at him while he was talking to Jim Rome. I suddenly got upset. I feel bad for him. I can't even imagine what he has been through. Ben we love ya we are here for you!

Wow, Its on the ESPN website!!!! The whole story is at 6pm est tommorrow on ESPN. Guesss it's dinner at the tv tommorrow. He looked great I thought. Was totally amazed by how actually close he was to death. That never came out, sorta glad it didn't till he was ready to tell it. HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!! That picture earlier today did no justice compared to this. STEELER NATION BE HAPPY!!!

yep.

6PM on ESPN.

i'm supposed to have a softball game tonight, but it's raining anyway. may have to be late to catch this, man.

it was good seeing him looking so healthy. i thought for a while (cause i came in the middle) that they were showing something from before the crash. then i saw his right eye all messed up and that sort of clinched it.

can't wait to see it.

and...friday sometime during the day they're supposed to be showing the broadcast of the celebrity golf tourney from lake tahoe. i think on nfl radio they said it would be on the golf channel. i'll have to double check that....

You know it's not going to be right at 6pm. I'm thinking about having my wife tape it for me. I've just got to find a blank tape for her to record it. Definitely don't want to miss this one.
I saw the video on ESPN.com and Slash, I'd have to agree with you. He looks good but I feel bad for what he's been through. However, I do believe that everything is behind him and now that he's more focused on football, that only spells out one thing...Not just a birth of a gunslinger but the start of a new dynasty!

Make your own history...Start a new dynasty!!!!!

You play only one way, and thats physical...physical on 3....1, 2, 3...PHYSICAL!! (Bill Cowher before the Indianapolis Dolts playoff game).
