Big Ben: ‘God is good’


I almost forgot to mention the TV double-take I had to make at the conclusion of the Steelers-Jets game tonight. I was watching the post game, and something Ben Roethlisberger said made me reach for the DVR remote. I had to rewind and confirm what I thought I had heard:

“God is good.”

Yes, He is. But who does Roethlisberger think he is fooling as he attempts to rehab his image?

I don’t want to judge Big Ben’s heart. I don’t know anything about his relationship with God. But I do know that the Steelers’ QB is one of the skeezier sports superstars out there. Remember the recently annual sexual assault allegations?

Unlike Michael Vick’s recent comments, Roethlisberger’s today struck me much like the liner notes to many hardcore rap albums—full of praising and thanking Jesus, followed by a bunch of vulgar lyrics about killing and screwing.
