Hello again to everybody, I am writing again to let you know how everything has been going in my crazy life...figure I could take a few minutes out of my day to talk to you, the fans...well we just got done beating the Bengals and boy did it feel GREAT!!!!
That was a very big win for us and I think it really gave us a new confidence heading into the meat of our schedule...it especially feels great to be back on the field playing instead of just watching because last week killed me not being able to play...that was the first time in my career that I have not started a game once I was already the starter..so sorry that I let you all down by not playing.
I will do my very best from now on to play in as many games as I can...by the way Zeus says hi to everybody, he's doing well, getting big and still as ornery as ever.
I am excited about something I think we are going to try and do on the site and that's put pictures on the site that are from my phone, so like this past weekend I took pictures of the stadium and fun stuff so I hope that it turns out to be a lot of fun and I hope you all will like it..well I guess I better get going I need to make sure my dog is staying out of trouble...take care everyone and I hope to see you all at the Monday night game...BR7
Hello again to everyone and welcome back to my new and improved website...I thought the perfect time to do my first blog would be thursday mourning before the patriot game...I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying football season so far...I know that everyone is as excited as I am that we are finally back at it...obviously things are going well so far with wins over the titans and texans we have been doing well so far with a big game this weekend...I know that a lot of you were pretty worried about our offense after the preseason and us not scoring any points, but there were a couple of you out there that believed we could do it just like I did...well I am off to practice today and I hope that everyone watches the game, cheers loud, and has a great time...p.s. remember everyone the season is still very young just like us try not to get to high or to low...Thanks to kevin and joel for the new look website it looks great...well I will talk to you all soon.
Hello everyone ... I am so sorry it has been so long since I have been able to get on here and write to you all I feel so bad about it...but I am back and I want to let yo all know a little about what has been going on in my life.
As some of you may know the family member that was sick in my family was my grandfather. Well, he passed away on Sat. morning. It is very tough for our family because we are so close. He was a great man and I know he is the reason my father is such a great man, and it is why I strive to be a great man so I can make them all so proud of me.
He was 83 years old and lived a great life he lived through and fought in a world war, made it through a depression, and saw so much else in his life time that most of us will never see or ever want to see. He was married to my grandmother for over 60 yrs and I have never seen two people so more in love then them. They were still holding hands and kissing at the age of 80.
It was tough for me because I am the only grandson in the family and grandpa was a great athlete, so he came to a lot of my games ever since I was a little kid, it hurts a lot because he never got to see a Steelers game live, but I guess at least now he has the best seat in the house for the rest of my career.
It was tough for me because the last funeral I went to was my mothers when I was 8, so I am not used to these kinds of things, but it meant so much to have all the support from friends and family and other players, and all the prayers.
I guess that's enough venting for now. It feels better to talk to you all about this because I have to be the rock for this family and when I can let it out sometimes it helps so thank you all for
your support and prayers and I look forward to talking again soon.
I am dedicating this season to my grandfather Ken Carl Roethlisberger. I love you.
Hello again everyone sorry it has been a couple of days since my last blog, I have been kinda busy with practice and things. I hope this blog finds everyone doing well and I hope that everyone is having a great week. We had our second practice of the week today and it went really well. I feel that we are looking good on both sides of the ball. Everyone is pretty healthy and it is great to have the Bus back out there on the field. Alan Faneca has not been here for a couple of days because of his pregnant wife so everyone keep he and his family in your thoughts. I know he would appreciate your support. Since we have talked last I have played in 2 golf outings, Heinz's and Marc Bulgers. Both were a great time except I think Heinz cheated because he won his own outing and I know he is not that good of a golfer haha. Ohh well I guess he had some good golfers on his team. A couple of us went to dinner last night. We went to Nakoma (I don't know if I spelled it right) but it was really good. It was my first time there and the sushi was great. I took Heath so that we could talk in the car a little on the way over there and I could answer some of his questions..p.s. he's going to be great!! Anyway, I hope that everyone has a great memorial weekend. Please be safe, smart and remember don't drink and drive. The answer how old is Zeus..he will be 8 months on the 8th of June. The new question is what size shoe do I wear?
Hello everyone. I hope that everyone is doing well...as some of you may know I just got back form the Quarterback Challenge. It was a lot of fun but I think that I should tell you all how I thought mini camp went first. I am sure that some of you are dying to know what I thought. Well, I thought it went very well, our new tight end is going to be good he was a little nervous which is to be expected, but he will be very good I do believe. I also think that our new cornerback Mcfadden is very good. He is extremely quick and has great hands, so I have high expectations for both of those players as well as the rest of them. Now for the Quarterback Challenge. I had a lot of fun. I got to hang out with a bunch of great guys. The other QB's were Byron Leftwich, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselback, Drew Brees, Joey Harrington and Jake Delhomme. We did a bunch of different challenges and had a lot of fun. I can't tell you how I did bc it is going to be on tv and I don't want to ruin the whole show, so I hope that you all watch and see what happens. Anyway, while we were down there we had a lot of fun. We all went jet skiing in the ocean, played ping pong, had a golf outing, and ate a lot of great food. When I got back I had to run out to the kennel and pick up zeus. He was so excited to see me the lady said when she went to put his leash on he starting going crazy like he knew I was there. It looks like he got bigger in just 3 days that I was gone. He now weighs 60 lbs. I am glad that you all got to see the pictures of him that you all wanted. Well anyway, I better get going. The answer to the last question my favorite pie is Apple. You all had very interesting guesses though. My new question is how old is Zeus? Well everyone take care and I will talk to you all soon.
Hello again everyone ... I hope that everyone is doing well on this Tuesday afternoon. I know that I am staying busy with getting ready for our first mini-camp and Zeus and I am now in the process of painting my living room and my kitchen will be next, so that is keeping me busy while I am here at the house.
And not only do I have paint on my hands Zeus is now a multi-colored dog. He brushed up against a wet wall so he has a big patch of paint on him. It's kind of funny so he is going to get a bath tonight to get the paint off, even though he looks funny. He also has a few spots on his nose. Speaking of Zeus, I am going to have some pictures of him on here very soon maybe even later this week so keep your eyes open for that.
Well, I'd better get back to my painting so everyone have a great day. Oh, I guess I better comment real quick on our draft picks: All I have to say is I am very excited. Not only do I think we got great players, I think they are great men.
Oh, and one last thing I am looking for a new masseuse for the season so if anyone out there has ideas I am open for them and remember this is to make my body feel better so I can play better so make sure they are good at what they do.
Thanks everyone and have a great day.
P.S. Question of the day: What is my favorite type of pie?
(And the last answer was # 23, because of Michael Jordan. I know, wrong sport but I liked him ... ha-ha have a great day everyone; talk to you all soon!
Hello again everyone. I hope that everyone had a great week ... TJIF right everyone?
I was looking at the weather and it looks like we got spoiled, because it looks like the rain is on its way ... so since it is supposed to rain I think the best thing to do would be for everyone to go check out my very good fried Kevin Heart the actor and comedian. He is going to be at The Improv tonight through Sunday. I will be there tomorrow night ... he is extremely funny and a very good friend.
He was in Soul Plane, Along Came Polly and Scary Movie 3. He is so funny, so everyone go check him out and show your support. Like I said, I will be there tomorrow.
I know a lot of you asked for a picture of Zeus, and I am going to do everything I can to get some pictures of him on here so that you all can check him out.
The only problem is I don't have a digital camera, so I am going to either have to get one or wait until my mom comes with hers.
Either way I will get one up as soon as I can so that you all can see how cute he is and know how hard it is to get mad at him ... like right now because he pulled a shirt off the chair and is walking around with it dragging it on the floor.
OK, got the shirt back ... man just like a little kid ha ha .... OK, well everyone have a great weekend and I will try and write soon.
Those who said JIF Extra Crunchy you were right...and I have had a few ask for harder questions so here goes: What was my first ever football number? ... and the bonus is why that number?
Good Monday everyone. It's a beautiful Monday and I hope everyone is having a great day. I know it's been a little bit since I wrote last, but I had a pretty busy weekend.
I had the Leukemia Breakfast of Champions, and last night was the Dapper Dan banquet. I had a great time and want to thank all of you for the support that you continue to show, not just to me but the other athletes.
It was cool sitting next to Ms. Williams and talking to her about her experiences and find out what it was like at the Olympics. And, of course, to meet the great Mr. Palmer was wonderful. He said that he would give me some lessons, so I am looking forward to playing with him soon.
But anyway, I got 2 packages in the mail today, and they were my trophies for winning both pro ams that I played in. The crazy thing is that I didn't know we won. I guess they messed up the score haha.
Anyway, I just wanted to check in with everyone and see how they were doing. Zeus is very happy right now because he got 5 new toys today. So he is playing with them all at once. I guess I will go play with him now.
Everyone have a great day. Question of the day: What kind of peanut butter do I like? What brand and style?
This is a hard one, so I am interested to see who can guess this one right. Have a great day and special thanks to Coach Hep and his wife for everything they do.
