Hey Ben-

I can relate with the whole painting the house thing, my house was a paint factory couple months ago. The fumes can get to ya after a while, haha;) As for your question of the day...i'll say peach or blackberry pie. Take care man:)

Dave

I mailed an article from an Oklahoma City newspaper on a local hero who lost a leg in Iraq, who's now a big Steeler fan (we have a lot here, actually)He's going to be working with other veterans, and has some degree of lingerring health problems. I asked for autographed picture to cheer him up, and got back the post-card ad to BUY stuff from bigben7.com. This wasn't for me, and I even mailed the entire paper to show it. I remember as a kid, when you didn't have to PAY to get something, for someone else who was hurting. I was born in Pittsburgh, and bleed black and gold, but this set me back a bit. -Dave

Hey there, Ben

Sounds pretty cool that Zeus wants to be there and watch as you paint. Just make sure when you set the roller down that it isn't where he can reach it. Otherwise, your living room and kitchen won't be the only things painted.....lol

The pie?? Gotta be between cherry, key lime, or lemon meringue. I'll guess Cherry.

Hope everything goes well as you get ready for your first mini-camp, and prepare for the '05 season. I didn't know about you and Pittsbugh until late last season, so I'll be looking forward to seeing each step en route to a Super Bowl win this time.

Have fun painting w/Zeus! God Bless, and talk to ya soon.

Hi Ben,
Just a few "painted dog" tips from one dog lover to another (I've had similar troubles):

Obviously, I wouldn't use paint thinner, paint remover, turpentine, gasoline and similar products on Zeus. If your paint is water-based, it could be removed by wetting the paint and allowing the paint to soften for a few minutes. Work the fur between your fingers without pulling on the fur, and you may find the paint will loosen. If Zeus's fur is thick this may take a while. You can also check with grooming suppliers for recommended products. If this doesn't work, take the safest route and clip the paint out (this is actually what I ended up doing...).

Hope this helps! Sorry, I don't know any good massauses in this area. My guess for your favorite pie: banana cream? key lime? (hope I'm allowed to guess two). I'm going to see "Kingdom of Heaven" (the Ridley Scott/Gladiator director movie) Wednesday so I'll let you know how it is! Have a good time at mini-camp.

God bless, Marissa Reed & Forrest Smith :)

I think your favorite pie is apple or peach. I wanted to tell you thank you for support Coach Hep last week. It meant a lot to the family.

Have fun painting!

Good luck with getting the paint off Zeus! LOL, it's like a mini adventure trying to paint and redecorate with helpful pets around. Atleast that's my experience with redoing my bedroom right now. I'm glad you're pumped with the draft picks, I am excited to see how you all will gel together. Also, good luck with finding a new massuese, I think that they are absolutley essential for athletes. I know my amature skills came in handy when I was on the US International General Gymnastics team. I didn't get much rest in our hotel rooms and flights and train ride between countries, but I like to think I had a helping hand (literally) in how well we preformed. Well, rock on in the mini-camp. God Bless.

Melanie

Hey Ben, glad to hear things are going well. I hope mini-camp runs smoothly...be sure to keep us updated.

Have a good day! :)

Nicole

Hey Ben,
I want to say your favorite pie is banana cream pie....just a guess...but anyway, i go to Spa Uptown for massages and they are wonderful!! You should try it. It's in the Chatham Center. Well have a good day!

Love
Nicole

Ben, I'm a native Pittsbugher who moved to Sacramento, CA back in 1989. I still follow the Steelers very closely. I can't wait till you play your Monday night game in San Diego Octobet 10th. I have already made hotel reservation. Also, I was wondering if you are planning on play golf up in Lake Tahoe this year. I hope so, it would be a great honor to meet you. Take care and we'll see you in the Superbowl this year!!!!!

When’s the next ride on the deluxe?? Nice choice. Add some Vance and Hines Big Shots and reprogram the EFI, you should get 10 more horses and killer pipes. Make that V-Twin scream. Next ride is down to DC for Rolling Thunder. It’s a great event for a great cause. They have a website you should definitely check out. See you on the road.

Nicole

Hi,

I've been reading your blog for a little while now... I think it's cool that you're this accessible to your fans.

Sounds like Zeus was trying to help! :) I grew up with dogs, but I don't have any now - my landlord won't allow them. Once my husband and I get our own house we're going to get one, we think.

My husband and I just celebrated our third wedding anniversary last week - his name's Ben too. Not a football player, though, but he did play baseball in high school.

And just for funsies, I'm going to go out on a limb and say pecan pie. That might not be right, but oh well.

Can't wait for the pictures of Zeus!

--Kristina :)

Kiki

Hey Ben,
I just happened across your web site. I think it's great that you keep in touch with your fans. I cannot imagine the pressure and responsibility you deal with every day! Good luck with mini-camp. I hope to get down to training camp this summer to catch you, Hines and the rest of the guys. Oh and, good luck with the puppy. They're a handful.

Laura

Hey Ben!

I haven't checked your site in awhile...I didn't realize you were writing so much. It's so cool to hear from you, and that you're reaching out to the fans! Glad you're enjoying mini camp and your dog -- that's always fun. I just started dating a guy who says he knows you, so who knows? Perhaps I will get to meet you one day. It seems like all my friends have met you, and I always seem to miss you out at Jack's or the Waterfront. One day though... I'm really starting to get excited about the upcoming season, and I just found out I might be getting tickets to a bunch of games. I'm soo looking forward to watching you tear it up again! Hope things continue to go well for you! Enjoy the 'burg!

Dang! This off season is a killer for us fans, Ben. It's almost like having a void at the end of the week that you just can't fill until next season.

I'd wager most people think you're just maxing and relaxing in the off season, but I KNOW they have you running all over-- something tells me you can't wait to get back out there and play the game.

Still, enjoy what little time you have to yourself and in private.

DJ Coffman

Oh- Ben-- check out the massage therapists at Nemacolin Woodlands south of Pittsburgh. Nice golf course up there too.... You probably already know it.... here's a link.

Ben-

I guess I never really knew how to express this. See, I am a huge fan of yours, but I am not someone who has jumped on the bandwagon over the past year or so. I have watched you in college and have the proof from me wearing your jerseys on certain dates. The only thing is, I don't live in Pennsylvania or even Ohio, I live in Missouri. Missouri! There are plenty of bandwagoners down here for everything as I am sure there are around the nation and even the world. Just to let you know, I personally and I know a lot of fans on this site are with me, will always be by your side, will never second guess your decisions and will back you in anything that you do. I've wanted to get this word to you for a long time so thank you for reading this. I have a shrine to you in my room (haha). And in case you're wondering I'm 18 years old. I guess thats not as creepy as a 30-year-old being this obsessed, but still. I am in an oral communications class where we have to give about 5 speeches and EVERY SINGLE ONE of mine has had you as the main subject. For cryin out loud my email address is BenRoethlisberger7@hotmail.com. And the best one of all? My girlfriend, if she was born a boy, would have been named-you guessed it-BEN! But now on to the pie. I'm gonna have to say pumpkin pie--Thanksgiving and football always kind of went together.
