Why “Ben-A-Palooza” Says It All . . .

BEN-A-PALOOZA?

Yeah.  That’s all you have to know about Ben Roethlisberger.  He names his club crawl excursion, BEN-A-Palooza.  It’s all about him.  What a self-righteous and conceded label for a drunken journey that keeps Mr. Ben in the spotlight.  If you had any doubts about the way Little Ben operates, this should surely put them to rest.  I’ve had defectors as close as friends and family who’ve championed Ben.  But that’s how old-school and current Pittsburghers are . . . blindly LOYAL.    It’s charming and a bit misguided at the same time. 

Each year, Ben Roethlisberger goes on a BENSCAPADE – yes, I made that up – and he hits all the bars and clubs in the area he targets.  I get it.  You’re a twenty-something millionaire and want to work it while you got it.  But Little Ben has a lot to learn about celebrity and all this says is that he is too self absorbed to realize what he is doing to his legacy.

Way too self absorbed.  He makes me sick.  Is it whatever Ben wants, Ben gets?  Not this time.  This year’s festival ended up a bit differently . . .

A word to the young, rich, single – or married, for that matter – your millions and stature do not precede you.  You are not above the law.  And as a Steeler fan, I hope Ben Roethlisberger is made an example of because this behavior defines everything that is wrong about professional athletes.
