Something To Lean On: The Big Ben Walking Stick Is Creepily Spectacular

Wow, it’s Big Ben. And he’s back…in Ent form!

Courtesy of the fine Pittsburgh blog P.S.A.M.P. comes this delightful little example of wood-craftsmanship they found on the site Etsy: the “Pittsburgh Steeler’s [sic] Carved Walking Stick.” Fan-freaking-tastic. If Ben Roethlisberger were made out of wood, this is exactly what he would look like.

The description:

What would be better than a carved Pittsburgh Steeler walking stick carved by a die-hard Steeler fan for a unique Christmas present….

This walking stick is sturdy and can be used for hiking, walking or just a great conversational piece for you and your friends.

If you watched the game last Sunday, you know that “Big Ben” is a sturdy guy and so is this walking stick..

Have fun looking at him. This comes with a leather tether and a rubber tip on the bottom… the stick is 60″….

Thank you.

Frank, the carver

Well done, Frank, the carver. Seriously. That thing is awesome, although I can think of a few uses for the walking stick not mentioned by Frank:

  • as a sturdy tool to keep your drunk ass propped up while bellying up at the bar after one too many Jägerbombs
  • as an implement to keep a restroom door shut for some “quiet time” with a drunken coed
  • um, it could be used to fix the cable?

Okay, okay, I keed, I keed. In any event, I eagerly anticipate other wood-craftsmen following Frank the Carver’s lead and begin fashioning walking sticks resembling other NFL players. A Danny Woodhead Walking Stick is a no-brainer, as far as I’m concerned.
