ESPN this morning reports he'll be ok and still be able to play football after 7hrs of surgery for broken nose,jaw and a 9 inch cut in his head not to mention some new teeth. I'm a Big Steeler fan but I think Ben was careless in his decission not to wear a helmet nor did he think about his teammates. I can understand he wants to ride but not to use the extreme caution being who he is was selfish and dumb.

Knowing Pittsburghers, the woman probably saw the maine license plates and her football hero on the ground ... and made up some story to protect her man. People are pretty nuts over there when it comes to da stillers. I seriously doubt some 62 year old is going to run a red light.

There's a police guy at the scene with a terrible towel T-shirt, lol.

Yea, but you just don't know how cool I look. :icon_bigg

Usually, people wear those half shell helmets on these type of bikes which I think it totally stupid. If I am going to wear a lid I am going to wear a good one that will actually protect my head and my face. I am not going to wear one that will protect my head and leave me looking like the elephant man I if I crash. And if I crash that bad it is just my time to checkout and I will just go on home to see Jesus. And ride the twistys in the sky.

Of course he's a squid and he's a dork on top of that. Just look at what he was riding...

9356574 400X300

With more money than most sensible people can spend in a lifetime and a superbowl win under his belt, it shouldn't surprise anyone that this guy probably felt invincible. I mean after all, he was riding a Busa.

Guy wears a helmet when he is bouncing around on the field with just guys running after him, but he rides a busa without one? Proof you dont have to be smart to play Pro ball.
