Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was in a serious motorcycle accident yesterday. Apparently, Big Ben was riding his crotchrocket and hit another car with his head that has resulted in numerous facial injuries requiring seven hours of surgery yesterday. Getting in a motorcycle accident is bad enough, but Roadrashberger wasn't wearing a helmet, which isn't against the law in Pennsylvania, but it is very stupid. It's not like he wasn't aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle. Last year, when Kellen Winslow, Jr. of the Cleveland Browns blew out his knew riding a motorcycle, Ben was talked to about his riding by Coach Cowher and others. He said he was safe and didn't ride crotchrockets. Guess part of that isn't true. Also, reports are appearing that he didn't have a motorcycle license. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

I hope he makes a full recovery but that was a dumb move.
