Ben Roethlisberger is engaged

It appears as though Ben Roethlisberger has calmed his Big Ben ways. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback who just this past April was accused of sexually assaulting an under age girl is reportedly engaged. The lucky or unlucky lady is Ashley Harlan, who graduated from St. Francis College in 2008. The engagement happened over the holiday, and the couple plan to marry in July.

Roethlisberger started off the season with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and now him and Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the playoffs. When talking to reporters about the upcoming game, Big Ben neither confirmed or denied his rumored engagement, “Oh geez. Listen, there’s always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me. You guys know that I am not going to talk about my own personal life, I don’t do that. My one singular focus right now is on the playoffs, on football and trying to get to the Super Bowl. So, that’s what my focus is right now.”

The Steelers have a bye the first round of the playoffs… no word if the Future Mrs. Harlan will be cheering on Roethlisberger in the stands.

Protestors welcome Big Ben to his first game back

Back in April, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended two-time Super Bowl winner and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger for the first six games of the season. Rothlisberger violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy after he was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year-old student at Georgia College & State University. This is the second accusation of its kind Rothisberger has been accused of.

Rothisberger’s first game back was today against the Cleveland Browns. Women’s rights groups gathered outside Heinz Field to protest Rothlisberger’s return. Some of the signs read: “Big Ben’s a Jagoff,” “Consent is Not a Game,” “No Means No,” and “Don’t Let Ben Rape Again.”

The Steelers beat the Browns, 28-10.
