Despite online rumors to the contrary, no, Ben Roethlisberger does not have cancer. That’s right, Steelers fans, off the ledge, nice and easy.
Apparently, there was an online post by someone claiming to be him that stated Big Ben had skin cancer.
Roethlisberger said that he is not active on Facebook, MySpace or Twitter. His agent, Ryan Tollner, says he’s actively working to get those impostors and the misinformation they spread off the Internet.
Yeah, likely story, Ben. You think you’re smart, but I can see what you’re up to – you just are saying this to get a free toupee at the Hair Team For Men. I can see Ben now, after hitting on a girl while wearing his new hairpiece:
“She won’t talk to anyone, huh? Oh no, she won’t say a word to anybody. Well, she’s talking a blue streak now, Jack!”
When are people going to learn that when you try to pull stunts like they did on Seinfeld, it never works out?
On second thought, maybe it was an impostor who posted the message. Thankfully, Pro Football Talk warned us about the depths these fakers will sink in their attempts to trick and discredit well-respected, online journalists.
