Crash Gordon

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was involved in a motorcyle crash on Monday morning. The Super Bowl hero and future organ donor ran head-first into a SUV after he flipped over the handle bars. NFL linesman Mark Hittner initially ruled that Roethlisberger’s head had not crossed the windshield, but the official changed his mind as he drew closer to the accident and as Roethlisberger had some extra time to crawl into the windshield.

Roethlisberger, as you could expect, was not wearing a helmet. Because otherwise he would no longer be a professional athlete if he did wear one. Roethlisberger has been reprimanded previously by former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw for riding a bike and obviously took the accident of Kellen Winslow II to heart. And at what point does Bill Cowher have to make like James Caan in The Program and take his keys away from Joe Kane, err, Roethlisberger?

But cheer up, Big Ben. Because of the U.S. men’s soccer team, this wasn’t the biggest car wreck of the day.

Perhaps Big Bin and Winslow will put their coinage together and buy that motorcycle with a side car from Mayberry's Barney Fife! It's got to be safer... Then there's that Joey Chitwood gig...

Man, Ben and Kellen II suck at riding bikes.

I like riding bikes with no seats.

My college coach was rat face. I like Dook.
