Credit and kudos to "Big" Ben Roethlisberger today for manning up and take responsibility for the distractions and rifts that occurred during the Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 season.
In an interview focusing specifically on his relationship with the now departed Antonio Brown, Roethlisberger said the following:
“I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments on that show and especially towards him. I genuinely feel bad about that and I’m sorry. Did I go too far after that Denver game? Probably. That’s the thing about media and social media. As soon as you say sorry, it only goes so far. You can’t take it back. And I wish I could because if that’s what ruined our friendship and relationship, I’m truly, genuinely sorry about that.”
Hats off to you Big Ben...you did the right thing. As for Brown? What else but to give an immature, idiotic, and pathetic response to that.
LOSER...It's actually a joke at this point. Brown just doesn't know how to get off social media nor how to ignore anything said about him. The Raiders think they are getting a stud receiver? They are. Do they think they are getting someone that won't be a locker room cancer? NOT! They have no clue what they are in for...
The Pittsburgh Pirates are preparing for their next series, this at PNC Park as they host the Colorado Rockies. The Bucs are on a mini-roll and find themselves in third place in the National League Central at 24-20 and 2 1/2 games behind the first place Cubs. The Pirates are currently the #2 seeded wild card team so 2018 thus far has to be considered a success.
This time last season on May 20, the Buccos were nearly identical to this season having won 26 and losing 20 but were a bit closer to the top spot in the division just 1 1/2 out.
Finally for today, I get an update from ESPN sports each day on my phone. Today one of the headlines was about the WWE. HELLO??? Pro wrestling is NOT a sport. Yet millions upon millions of wrestling fans follow this ENTERTAINMENT and attend its events. It's theater folks. Any common sense person knows this. ACTING. It belongs in Entertainment Weekly or on the Jerry Springer Show or something.
Sorry if I offend anyone, but the WWE is for morons. It's the most ridiculous embarrassing form of entertainment on the planet. Plain and simple. For those who know me from my childhood, they may come back at me and say I used to watch it and attend it at the old Civic Arena in Pittsburgh.
True I did. But the entertainment factor of pro wrestling then was MUCH different. Those men tried to make it seem like some sort of wrestling match despite some of the crazy stunts like George "The Animal" Steele used to pull such as biting the corner ring pads apart and using them as a weapon. But absent were the pre-scripted drama lines, the stories, the sexual innuendos, and the STEROIDS.
This is not entertainment in any sense of the word unless you really can't find anything more worthwhile in life to be entertained by. In the words of the late Myron Cope...YOI!
