Philadelphia Eagles Guard Todd Herremans Ain’t Buying What Big Ben Is Selling

Zing! Yesterday, the internets were abuzz regarding the interview Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette where Big Ben discussed his impending nuptials to Ashley Harlan, in particular how Roethlisberger stated that the couple’s religious beliefs prevented them from living together prior to marriage. Obviously, in light of Roethlisberger’s sordid past, many of us scratched our heads as we contemplated the convenience of Roethlisberger’s transformation into a religious and pious man, the relative hypocrisy exhibited by the assertion and whether or not Roethlisberger truly believes what he is saying.

One person who apparently does not buy into it is Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans, who took it to the tweets to make a not so subtle dig at the So-Called Spiritual Evolution of Big Ben. Now that’s what I call bringing the snark.

Of course, some folks in Twitterland did not take kindly to Herremans’ analysis of Roethlisberger, prompting him to defend himself:

Funny how it takes all day to get negative feedback from a tweet… If u read it correctly.. It reads “good for him”

See, it’s all about reading comprehension, people. As Herremans points out, his tweet does close with “good for him.” Indeed it does. Indeed it does.
