A sports entry.

Now I am not into pro football (American style) in any big way but I have been following the career of Ben Roethlisberger (aka Big Ben to all Miami University Football fans and Alumni) because the both of us went to the same college-Miami University (in Ohio dammit and about 100 years older than the U of Miami in Florida).

And now Ben, after an incredible college career and a great start to his pro career with the Steelers, has gone and half kilt himself by riding his motorcycle into a large car while wearing no helmet.

I guess ben was still under the impression that he was immortal. Something a lot of boys and young men seem to believe about themselves until they learn the hard way that they can indeed be broken or killed. I have a feeling if mr Roethlisberger ever rides a motorcycle again he will be wearing a helmet and a good set of leathers.

I hope he heals quickly and has not done anything to himself to wreak his football career.
