These are two Steelers fans I just met... On the right is Zack, and on the left is Yusef. And yes, that's a Snuggie. Asked about the outfit, Yusef said, "Yeah, man. It's a Snuggie. but I had to pin it together so I could wear it right. You know, pimp it out a little bit." And really, who could argue?
I talked briefly to Yusef and Zack in the lobby of Radio City, and here's what they had to say about Ben Roethlisberger:
Yusef: I'm not to worried about, ya know? We just lookin at it like a 4-6 injury... He'll be back.
Me: Do you think he'll get traded?
Zack: I think so. Maybe even tonight. He's gone.
Me: So you want him gone?
Zack: No, I don't think he should get traded, but I think they're gonna trade him at this point. The owners have had enough.
Yusef: He's got some problems man, no question. But we'll get over it once he starts playing again.
At this point, a few others entered the conversation, including a guy who went to Miami of Ohio when Roethlisberger was there. Most of what was said can't be reprinted on a family website, but it all centered on what's wrong with Big Ben. Here's one theory courtesy of Zack, the Steelers fan rocking facepaint and eyeblack:
"Honestly? I just think he's got problems gettin' chicks. I mean the dude looks like Seth Rogen."
BOOM. As analysis goes, I think we have to call that definitive. He's got some problems, man. And chief among those problems just might be that he looks like Seth Rogen. More in a bit...
