HARF: Steelers post pic of Ben Roethlisberger posing in front of Big Ben (photo)


Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, along with some of his teammates and other assorted members of the organization, currently are in London to do some PR to promote the team’s Sept. 29 game there against the Minnesota Vikings.

While in town, someone thought it would be a hoot if Roethlisberger posed for a photograph with Big Ben in the background. Said photo was then uploaded to the Steelers official Facebook page.

Get it? Big Ben standing in front of Big Ben? Even Kissing Suzy Kolber’s “HARF HARF HARF”-ing hilarious characterization of Roethlisberger would have been able to pick up on the obviousness of that effort at clever humor.

If only the Steelers had a player nicknamed Parliament. If that had been the case, we would have had the opportunity for a witty “National Lampoon’s European Vacation” reference.

God, I miss Jack.
