Ben it really sounds like you are relaxed and focused; yet also having fun! It's important to enjoy every moment of this great event! God Bless! Go Steelers!


Ben, outstanding season and thanks for all the moments! What an exciting playoff run for you all this year! No matter what the outcome this Sunday, you can be proud of your continued accomplishments. Thanks again for putting Pittsburgh on the map! Enjoy and have fun with the game! These will be memories that will last a lifetime!

Best of success! We will be cheering you on from our local hangout in Pittsburgh!


Hey Ben --
Don't worry about the blog -- just work hard, enjoy it, and win the game. Talk to us after it's over, either way -- and post some of those pictures! We're cheering and praying! Best to you and all of the Steelers and GOOD LUCK on Sunday.

Hi Ben,
It's nice of you to share your Super Bowl experience with us. Don't worry about not blogging as much, although we love it, just practice, sleep, and prepare for Sunday.

Please tell the guys that I'm (we're) proud of them! Everyone's played so well and really earned the right to Super Bowl XL. I know you all are sick to death of "one for the thumb". Most of you weren't even born in the late seventies. How about let's start a new era. The New Dynasty. This is just the beginning, Baby!

Take Care, God Bless. Remember, You can do All things through Christ Who strengthens you! Phil 4:13. I know the thoughts I have towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace...to give a future and a hope. Jer.29:11
Your future is now, Ben. You're on course exactly as the Lord wants. Trust that. He'll show you, just follow Him.

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


Hey Ben.....can you believe you have fans in Montana? We've the Steelers forever and a day and we are so proud of you. Do us proud. My three boys look up to you... even have the fathead in their room. Good Luck!

Hi Ben,
Don't know if you'll read this before the big game, but I can assure you that every football fan (and I don't mean soccer) in Switzerland will root for you. Of course the sport is not as well known there as here but definitely more so than when I grew up there in the '60s and was probably the only young person who had any idea what American Football was. I'll always remember listening to the famous Ice Bowl on the radio.
A lot has happened since then and today there was a story about you in the leading Swiss newspaper.
Have a great game Sunday and win it for yourself, your team, family, and all of Switzerland. Hope they'll invite you to the Emmental - a great place with great food. Go Steelers!


Good Luck on Sunday! I wanted to tell you and Jerome that Windber Jr.High LOVES you guys and the whole Steeler team!!!Do awesome & I'll Have my #7 jersey& #36 jersey with me all day!
Love ya Black & Gold!

Ben! There are hundreds of Steeler fans in Boston (deep in enemy territory)! We have been having a blast this year cheering you and the rest of the guys on to the Big Dance! Most of us meet at a "Steelers Bar" every week..we had @ 300 show up for the Championship, all decked out in Black and Gold. We will all be watching and screaming and cheering and praying for you all on Super Bowl Sunday.
As usual, you will make all of us in Steeler Nation proud!
Good luck, have fun and bring back that One for The Thumb!


I will be praying for you...and Our whole family rooting for you.
