Hi Ben,
What a roller coaster last year, huh? I happened to be home from work on June 12th listening to the news the moment the story of your accident broke. The gates of heaven were bombarded with prayer, not for your career, the Steelers, the new season; but for you, your life. You've been given so many gifts, Ben. Your talent, yes. But so many others, too. You have been spared so much pain and heartache over your knees, your thumb, now with your accident. Ben, you've been blessed. And, my prayer is that you will emerge as the gracious, unpretentious, giving young man who first came to Pittsburgh. You are who you are, and have what you have because the Lord has entrusted those gifts to you. Ben, God will continue to bless you. Continue to live for Him. Here's to your happy, healthy future!

As always, you're on my mind and in my heart,


Voted !:) hope to see you back to your old self soon, giving the other teams hell !! Look after yourself and be good :):)


Voted--twice! (If you've got access to another PC, you can vote once per PC). Ben, it would be great to see/hear from you. Probably just want this all to go away, but I think it will when you make some kind of appearance locally. Waited 26 years for that Super Bowl--you guys are great! When the clock ticked down to 0:00, I literally could not speak--FINALLY.


Hi Ben,
Hope you are doing well. Can't wait to see you out on the field. Take care of yourself.
Your in my thoughts and prayers :)


Hey Ben! I'm so glad to hear that you are well after your accident, and I hope you continue to get better. You had me scared! I'm just thankful that you are okay. I can't wait for football season to start and. I also can't wait to see the Steelers win another Superbowl this year! =)

I voted for you in the ESPYS awards. Big Ben all the way!

God Bless, Lots of love,


Hey Ben! Whats up? Not much going on here! I already voted! I tried to sneak down on my dads computer and vote but he had already voted! He isn't a steelers fan so yea he didn't vote for you. But i told all of my friends on Myspace to vote! A lot of people said they voted! I hope you are doing good! I understand why you are keeping a low profile! I just can't wait to see you with my own eyes to say, ok he is ok. Well Ben keep doin your thing! Can't wait to see you and the other boys in action this fall. Oh tell Polamalu that Brandy still loves him ;)

Have a happy and safe 4th



Hi Ben!
I don't know if you'll ever read these but I hope that you do. I don't know how else to reach you without becoming a stalker. I don't want to bother or annoy you--I have the utmost respect for your right to a private life. Anyways...on that note, I hope you got the get-well package I sent to you. I don't know why we all keep coming back here to try and reach you. I guess it's the hope you represent--that there is at least one good, kind, Christian man left in this world that hasn't been tainted by the society that both adores and insults him because of just living life. At least I know that's why I keep coming back here. I'm glad that you as a person are OK after your accident. Football is secondary. Please take care and God speed, Ben! :)


I hope you have a Happy Fourth of July!! We all pray that you can recover soon from your accident so that you can continue to play football, and be able to romp with Zeus and Herkules!! :~)

Thanks for winning the Superbowl, the Steelers couldnt have done it without you!
God Bless,


PS: I voted!!

Hey Ben,

All thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Steeler fans across the world are praying for your recovery and safety. You will see how many fans you personally have when you win the ESPY in July. Stay safe and don't let the negative stuff get you down. A true Steeler fan is one who stands by you win or lose, no matter what....Am looking forward to the 2006 season...

I voted for you and forwarded the info to everyone on my mailing list. Not only did I vote for you because I live in Pittsburgh, but because you really do deserve it!! Hope you are doing well.


Big Ben,
I totally agree with what fmc (above) has to say.
You are a very Blessed young man.
This is an opportunity for you to make good out of this and set an example to others.(Helmet issue)You don't have any idea how many lives you can save.
I have been praying for you and for your healing.
We haven't seen or heard from you much these days, hope you are doing much better.
And yes our whole family will vote for you because you deserve it.

Love and many Blessings to you,

Tiffany.....#1 Big Ben Fan!!!!!!!!

Man, tough break, and just before my birthday! I can't wait to see you out on the field doing what you do best. Hope your recovery is quick and that the pain is kept to a minimum!


Well Ben you and I both have been recovering from motorcycle accidents (yours was much worse then mine though). So from one victim to another, I hope you are recovering and will be back to your normal life again.
I can't wait for football season to start. GO STEELERS!
