Big Ben was close to death

Re: Big Ben was close to death

Yeah...his "excuse" for not wearing a helmet was "I forgot to go in the basement to get it".


I lost even more respect for the guy when I heard that!

Re: Big Ben was close to death

That day I wasn't, I forgot it. I literally forgot it," he said. "You know there are times that, people that have been making a big deal for the last couple years about me riding first of all, and then me riding without a helmet, but it's one of those things that I ride with a helmet also. I do a little bit of both. If you don't wear a seat belt every time you ride in the car should I label you as a person who doesn't wear a seat belt? And unfortunately I happened to not have it on that day because I forgot it in the basement."

These are the words of someone who was "seconds from death", and "lucky to be alive". Not the brightest commentary, I have heard, considering the event and possible consequences.

Re: Big Ben was close to death

As a motorcycle rider for many years, I keep my helmet (and protective eyewear), right next to the cycle keys. The idea of "forgetting" one's helmet is a clear indication that he hardly ever uses it at all in spite of his statements to the contrary.

He is not very bright is he? So I'm guessing with his logic a chick that hooks 50% of the time should be labeled a part time hooker. Better yet, an entrepreneur.

He's still a douchebag.

Well maybe I spoke a little prematurely. I really like hookers..........so.............maybe Ben's logic works!

No big deal. Thurman Thomas forgot his helmet once, right?

His nose is bent to the right like a boxers. But other then that he looks fine.

I lost even more respect for the guy when I heard that!

I just hate when those that are gifted and blessed wanna roll the dice and be oblivious to prolonging their career. I expect when you sign to a team and become their guy, that contract buys your life, privacy- gone your a celebrity, everything should be committed to football and the org., NFL money doesn't exist its not real, what is it 1% of AMericans are $millionares. Dont be a jackass, others would kill to be in his position to make that money let alone even to be able to continue playing the sport is a god given gift.

They already have a crash test dummy, your a pro athlete, Millions of people are out of work, homeless, sick and dying its a slap in the face when someone is careless enough to disregard safety b/c unconsciously he knows he'll never be that guy. Is he still a hero to Pitt? I dont want to see any cheesy Bob costas or joe buck tributes before games how he overcame w/ slow motion images, of passing. You know its coming. Hopefully he will pull his team down this year.
