Big Ben, Big Heart

From Erik Barajas, news anchor at ABC-13 in Houston, Texas:

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office just got a big boost from an unlikely source.

A generous donation is helping out the Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit.

One guy that is not happy with Houston is Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger.

We sent him home on crutches after the Texans’ 17-10 victory. But, Big Ben as they call him, seems to have a big heart after making a big donation benefiting the HCSO.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Dan Gigler has an excellent tribute to Heinz Field on the stadium’s tenth anniversary.

Just one of the highlights from his blog of the 10 greatest Steelers games:

9. Dec. 20, 2009 — 37-36 win over Green Bay. In 77 previous seasons of football, the Steelers had never had a 500-yard passer until Ben Roethlisberger put up 503 in this outing against the Packers, probably the most thrilling regular season game ever played at Heinz Field. Roethlisberger’s record-setting pass was the game-winner, a breathtakingly perfect laser to a toe-tapping Mike Wallace in the left corner of the north endzone, eerily similar to Santonio Holmes’ Super Bowl-winning catch 10-months prior.
