Ben Roethlisberger blogs the Super Bowl!: Blogging quarterbacks is definitely a movement I support. Yeah. Blog previously mentioned here, but this is some fresh content, and deserves a mention.

Please tell me this is a mistake. Or a poorly-made point.

Is anybody else playing in the Super Bowl, other than big Ben? What's a BLOG?

You're soaking in it, pokchop.

If I'm not mistaken, blogs are comments or statements posted on a website for people to read or respond to. I don't know the actual definition but that's my guess.

Thanks to insomnyuk (surely one of our longest serving members) for tipping us to it. Though, for calls of double, I suppose it might have a better spot in the Super Bowl thread in the lockerroom. Big Ben a WWE fan, who knew? Is there a Big Ben action figure?

Sorry, I was a bit drunk last night. It seemed like a really good idea at the time. I stand by it.

I just thought it was noteworthy, you know, due to the proximity to the Super Bowl, and assumed most users wouldn't have known about 'Berger's blog.

I'm in the wrong here: I saw it on Matt Haughey's blog today which is why I thought it was a double. Carry on, Citizen.

Actually, Yerf, I linked it in a previous FPP comment so you did see the dp (and before MH blogged it for that matter). But I'm secure enough not to call out a drunken insomnyuk on it ;)

Don't ever contradict me in front of the kids again.

I still stand that my 11/4/05 post pre-dates any A-lister blogging ;) I called double with the wink because I think it is timely as well. Ben is blogging about his experiences as a Super Bowl quarterback. That's a first, I assume. Here's a video [embedded WMV] of Ben snapping pictures of his teammates as they are being interviewed by reporters. That's meta-cool. Maybe the photos will make it onto his blog too. Wonder if he has a Flickr account? Oh, and referencing the first Sportsfilter posting of his blog made the double cool.
