That’s It – I Give Up! (UPDATED)

(Update 4/21/10 – 3:15 pm) 

Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games on Wednesday for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, the NFL announced.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback also was ordered to undergo a comprehensive behavioral evaluation. Commissioner Roger Goodell will evaluate Roethlisberger’s progress before the season and might consider reducing the suspension to four games.

Seriously?

Who’s next?

As I think back over all of my favorite athletes of the last 10 years, at the top you have Tiger Woods then Big Ben. Which one of my sports idols is next? I just cannot believe what is happening. I mean I understand that athletes are getting paid millions and millions of dollars and they feel entitled but come on! When do these guys realize that they need to start thinking with their brains and not their extra-large libidos!

The biggest problem I have with all of this is that both of these players have been touted as not only great athletes but also great citizens.

First to the party was Tiger. Was there any other athlete in recent history that was considered a more perfect guy than him? Family man, amazing golfer, breaking golf’s color barrier (in a way), bringing golf to the forefront. I mean the list has no end. Then what happens? The rug is pulled out from under me like that one girl 15 years ago who wouldn’t dance with me at the Romney Elementary School Sock Hop! Honestly, how can one man keep up a relationship with that many women. Just forget about the fact that he was keeping it from not only millions of fans but also his wife and family. He was at one time juggling more women than Hugh Hefner. How is that humanly possible? I spend 365 days a year, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day trying to keep my wife happy…let alone 10 other women at the same time. Might be a nice little experiment thought….just kidding!

Now on to Big Ben. Such promise and such a likable guy. It was said that you could bump into Ben at the local Pittsburgh watering holes drinking with all of the other blue-collar steel workers. That was back when he first came to Pittsburgh. Now you can probably find him cruising the local college campuses for chicks. I mean come on! I know Ben is about the same age is me, I am actually older, but still you don’t need to be acting like you are still in college. Ben’s head got big, just like Tigers. He thought that he could walk into any bar, point out a girl, and if she didn’t want to go home with him then that wouldn’t stop him. This incident that happened in Georgia was just a little too much for this die-hard Steeler fan to handle. We now have three incidents involving Ben over the last 5 or 6 years. I really feel that he has one last chance and I am selling my wife’s Rothlisberger jersey on eBay!

When it all comes down to it, I really don’t think I can take this anymore! How do they expect me to continue watching sports if I cannot have a man crush on my favorite player. How do I walk down the street and show my love for my team or my favorite golfer if they act like a complete idiot. I could be like thousands of other guys and say, “Way to go Tiger!” or “You Da Man Ben!” But I have morals and hopes for my athletes. I feel that my hope may be running out….

This pains me but it is too funny not to post!

Keep it in your pants guys!
