Thank you to all the fans!
I want to take a second to say thank you to all the fans who voted for me and helped me get back to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. It is an awesome honor to be voted by my peers and coaches, but even more by the fans and that’s all of you! I wouldn’t have been able to go if it weren’t for all of your votes (no matter how many times you voted, haha).
I also want to say thank you for all of you who voted for my teammates, it will be awesome to throw to 2 of my receivers! Also a special thank you to Erin! Without your help and support I would not be going to Hawaii, so thank you so very much.
Thanks again everyone and I’ll do my best to send some pics for you all to see.
P.S. A special thank you from Ashley because now that you all voted for me she finally gets her honeymoon! Haha
Thanks again, Ben and Ash
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Is it Spring yet?
From March 5th, 2012: Gone Fishin'.
Ben and Merril Hoge released every fish they caught, and stopped counting after they caught 50 (at least that’s their story!).
Where’d they fish? It’s a secret….any good fisherman will tell you that you never divulge the location of your best fishing spots!
Ben’s friends Nick Sampson and Lonnie Price were “on location” as well, but were also sworn to secrecy as to the location.
Nick is a producer, and Lonnie is a photographer – their work can be seen on the hunting show “Primal Instinct” on Versus TV. As you may recall, Ben was a guest hunter on the show a couple of years ago, and the group got together for a goose hunt in Hershey, PA.

Book - The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan
Written By: Bruce A. Tollner, Rep 1 Sports
Foreword by: Stephen R. Covey, #1 Bestselling Author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People"
Ben on the book: "As a quarterback, I have played on some championship teams—and I have experienced some painful losses. Regardless of the outcome of any one game, my dad has been there to cheer me on. Whether I throw a winning touchdown pass or an interception, I know my dad is there to say, 'Good job, Son, I am proud of you!' My parents have had a major influence on the way I live life, as well as the way I play football. Because of their influence, and that of my coaches and others, I am blessed to be able to live out a childhood dream to play professional football. The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan can help you to help your child live out their childhood dreams. Read this book, and put together a winning game plan for your child."—Ben Roethlisberger, two-time Super Bowl Champion Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers
