I’m switching things up today. No travel, architecture, or landscape photo. Besides, football is a year round obsession in America. I’ve never posted a picture of Big Ben (at least I don’t remember posting one of him), because frankly I don’t like him very much. Great quarterback, but that doesn’t necessarily make him a great person or good role model. Regardless, Steelers’ fans love him. I’ve captured thousands of photos of him over the years covering the games for the Observer-Reporter newspaper.
So for the first time, I’m posting a picture of Ben Roethlisberger for your viewing pleasure. I took this specific photo last season in Cleveland Ohio, when the Steelers were up there to play against the Browns. It was bitter cold that day (20 mile an hour winds making it -20 degrees), but I dressed appropriately and was fine the entire time. The Steelers won easily and went on to have a good season. This photo was taken in pre-game.
