This screenshot from ESPN is funny, but riding without a helmet is not. Especially if you have a multimillion-dollar sports contract that prohibits riding a motorcycle, and your coach has already bawled you out for riding without a helmet. I’m sure once he heals, the Bears will pick him up, Kordell-style, and pay him a few million bucks to play three exhibition games and then get injured or busted for drunk driving or some other vast act of lameness that I can’t even conceive right now. (Thanks Steve for this and the last link)
One thought on “Ben Roethlisberger: Too cool for a helmet”
Let it stand on the record, by the way, that I grew up in Pittsburgh in the seventies and am thus a big Steelers fan, and I actually sort of dug Big Ben up until yesterday.
Also: note to sports millionaires: if you’re gonna crash a bike and probably end your career and/or life, do it on a Brutale or Jay Leno’s Rocket Bike, or Mike Hailwood’s actual vintage race bike, something with class, anything but a stupid poseur off-the-shelf Suzuki Hayabusa.
