Ben, I have enjoyed all the blogs from this week. It is so awesome for you to share this with your fans and I would like to say thank you. I am planning on going to a friends house so I can watch the game on their big screen tv. I wish you and the rest of the team the best of luck! God Bless You

Hey Ben! I hope you guys are having fun in Detroit! It's so much fun in Pittsburgh. There was a Troy Palamaluaow yesterday, or however you spell it. It had like a Hawaiian theme and fire dancers and stuff. It was crazy fun. Speaking of Troy, I hope his ankle feels better soon! I hope you are all getting enough sleep and resting and stuff. I am getting so excited for the game. I'm gonna be cheering you on soooo loud you'll be able to hear me in Detroit. You're my favorite player Big Ben and I hope you have fun tomorrow! God Bless You all!

Ben, it's really great to hear from you. Hopefully soon you will be writing about winning the SuperBowl and what an amazing feeling it is to be holding the Lombardi Trophy. Pretty soon you will no longer have to daydream. You will be playing and experiencing the game first hand. A dream many have, but some may never get there. The game is almost here! I have this nervous feeling as I believe all of Pittsburgh does. But it is also an exciting feeling knowing we have such a great team out there on the field. ONE MORE DAY!!! Good Luck and God Bless!

Hey Ben! My boyfriend is a huge Steelers fan (has been for most of my life!) and I recently started to get into football. (Guess who my favorite team is??) Then, on a trip to my hometown last year (Findlay, OH, baby!) my Dad told me you were a Findlay boy, so of course, by hometown comraderie, you are my favorite player! (Although you're also incredible on the field, as are th rest of your teammates!!)
Anyhow, just wanted to say GOOD LUCK!! I'll be wearing my Big Ben jersey tomorrow at the super bowl parties. =)


I know you are feeling this way too but I just have to say that Sunday cannot get here fast enough. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Best of luck to all of you. The Steeler Nation knows you have everything it takes to win this game! HERE WE GO STEELERS!

I'm only fourteen, but I've been a Steelers fan since before I can remember, because my step-dad raised me that way. I've waited so long for a Steelers Superbowl win and I'm sure it's going to happen tomorrow. I'm sooo excited to watch you play! Don't be nervous though, because I know you'll do fine. Good luck!

Hello Ben,

Greetings from Cleveland. I am so pumped up and excited on the eve of the Big game. I will be wearing your away jersey that has a lot of magic to it for the last 7 weeks or so. I went to a church game night and everyone there is on your side and believe we will get this one for the thumb.

Whatever you do, Ben, play your heart out and enjoy this moment in your lifetime. I believe you will be spectaular in the world's spotlight. I am expecting a major blowout, I think this team is on fire and ready to go blows with the rivals. This team is destined to win the ONE FOR THE THUMB. I have all the confidence in you. You are the blessing that Pittsburgh been waiting for the last 26 years. You are certainly the missing piece of the puzzle. Let's us win it for Bussie and Coach Cowher. Don't forget the Chief who will be looking down from heaven with your mother. God Bless you, Ben. You are turly the blessed one!!!

God Bless and Best of Luck,
David Saurer
Cleveland, Ohio

Time for it to snow Black n Gold!!!






no.1 big ben fan

Hello Ben, no.won fan here. Super Bowl dinner is aged Angus beef filet mignon wrapped in bacon and grilled to just medium. double stuffed baked potatoes, handmade garden salad, hot yeast rolls soaked in melted butter, and triple layer red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. Breathe deeply and think good thoughts! Leave the stress to us! Tell Hines to keep flossing, we believe he will have a lot to smile about come Sunday night! As always, your no.won fan.

Hi Ben,

You are representing our city so well. You are very patient and kind with the media and also humble and gracious. My family is so excited for you and the rest of the team. Sleeping has been a little difficult due to being anxious and wanting the win for the Steelers.

Thank you for being you and doing such a great job and being a great leader. We are praying for the Steelers to play their best and stay healthy. Enjoy every minute. God Bless


ben i love you so much..even tho im only 15 ive been living in some fantasy world that i would be your wife someday..haaaaa. yeah i know im crazy..oh well i just cant get you off my mind..

pittsburghs rootin' for them stillers



Hi Ben, it’s always a pleasure reading your blogs insightful or not ;op So it’s the big XL tomorrow. I can’t even begin to imagine the emotions you must be feeling right now. Me personally..lol I’m a nervous wreck, because I know how much you guys want to win, and how much you guys deserve to win. Like I said, I’m not sure what you are feeling, but one thing you shouldn’t feel is like this game is all riding on your shoulders alone. You’re going in this as a team, so try not to feel overwhelmed. Just take a deep breath, and go out there and give it your best as a team. Best wishes



Hey Ben I hope you get this...It's Saturday the 4th..Good luck just wanted you to know I AM your BIGGEST fan..We are having our first child and he is due on your Birthday. That's pretty ironic seeing as how your only my FAVORITE player. I got to see you in your first collegiate start at Michigan...And My sons very first outfir that we have bought him is a Roethlisberger outfit..Can you please after the game let me know if you get this...I know it's far fetched but it would mean alot to me. [email protected]


Just the fact that you are taking a small bit of time to organize some thoughts to put up on your blog shows that you care so much about others. You have a good heart, and are mature beyond your years. That's one of the biggest reasons you are where you are right now. Remember to keep Christ first in all, and you'll be fine! Play your heart out tomorrow and don't feel like this is all on your shoulders.


Thank you so much for the week blogs. You are such a considerate person thinking about your fans. For the next 24 hours though, it's all about you and your team! Best of luck tomorrow!

Again, I'd love to see pics of your ring in a couple days!

Go Steelers!

Hi Ben,
I confess that I am not a diehard Steeler fan as all the other posters seem to be, I always liked them, but I only started learning about football this year when I sat through high school games because I chaperoned my kids in the marching band. My mother, however, still loves you guys and I'm sure is cheering very loudly up in heaven *lol*
I only wanted to tell you that I think you are a really down to earth awesome guy. I always get nervous when kids idolize football players because sometimes their personal lives aren't exactly things you want kids to emulate, but you seem to be different. I truly admire your love for your family and fans, and your respect for all the people around you, and just that you haven't let the fame go totally to your head. You are very very blessed for what you have and it warmed my heart to read that you pray. It feels kinda weird to pray for a team to win in the SuperBowl, but our church is having a dinner today themed for you guys, and we're having a rally after worship tomorrow! I'll just pray non of you get injured and let the outcome be God's will!
So best of luck tomorrow ~ and no matter what the outcome, we still love you! (although we all really know you're going to win!)
