TS: Ben Roethlisberger's Blog vs Peyton Manning's Blog

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
Roethlisberger (http://benroethlisberger.typepad.com/) goes the traditional "Here are my friends! This is my dog! LOL!" LJ route, while Manning (http://peytonmanning.com/fan/diaries/) kind of goes the "Too busy to actually do this, wtf is wrong with my agent" route. Why does Roethlisberger have this much time on his hands? And why doesn't Manning? Please link to more highly entertaining things like this, and discuss Roethlisberger's dog, Zeus.

Now for the Quarterback Challenge. I had a lot of fun. I got to hang out with a bunch of great guys. The other QB's were Byron Leftwich, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselback, Drew Brees, Joey Harrington and Jake Delhomme. We did a bunch of different challenges and had a lot of fun. I can't tell you how I did bc it is going to be on tv and I don't want to ruin the whole show, so I hope that you all watch and see what happens. Anyway, while we were down there we had a lot of fun. We all went jet skiing in the ocean, played ping pong, had a golf outing, and ate a lot of great food.
When I got back I had to run out to the kennel and pick up zeus. He was so excited to see me the lady said when she went to put his leash on he starting going crazy like he knew I was there. It looks like he got bigger in just 3 days that I was gone. He now weighs 60 lbs.

Hey Ben,
Just wanted to know if you and that one golfer are still together. Good Luck on Monday.

What golfer!!??

Zeus and I am now in the process of painting my living room and my kitchen will be next, so that is keeping me busy while I am here at the house.

And not only do I have paint on my hands Zeus is now a multi-colored dog. He brushed up against a wet wall so he has a big patch of paint on him. It's kind of funny so he is going to get a bath tonight to get the paint off, even though he looks funny. He also has a few spots on his nose. Speaking of Zeus, I am going to have some pictures of him on here very soon maybe even later this week so keep your eyes open for that.

Well, I'd better get back to my painting so everyone have a great day. Oh, I guess I better comment real quick on our draft picks: All I have to say is I am very excited. Not only do I think we got great players, I think they are great men.

Oh, and one last thing I am looking for a new masseuse for the season so if anyone out there has ideas I am open for them and remember this is to make my body feel better so I can play better so make sure they are good at what they do.

Thanks everyone and have a great day.

P.S. Question of the day: What is my favorite type of pie?

I dunno why, Manning doesn't really seem like a hateable dude to me. D-CAF! D-CAF! D-CAF! Did you see the "your favorites" little mini-interview with him at the game last night? Dude says the song that describes his inner mind is "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins. Why would you hate that guy?

Allyzay must fight Zolton herself. (allyzay), Tuesday, 8 November 2005 18:46 (fifteen years ago) link


I don't know if folks are necessariliy hating on the Colts so much as they're hating on Peyton, & hating on the Colts by proxy. Hating on Peyton = hating on a successful superstar, possibly the best player in the game (@ least @ his position) that hasn't proven he can win "the big game" or come through in the clutch WHEN IT MATTERS, with some IS HEY GHEY horseshit on the side. Meaning that hating on Peyton = hating on a likeable A-Rod.

Also, unless I'm cross-eyed & stupid, I've only seen one poster make one post about the Colts being overrated so far, and that was prior to Monday's whupping, after which said poster seemingly acquiesed (albeit w/ a "fnar Colts D is lame against one of the best NFL O" caveat). Unless there's a COLTS SUXXXXXXXXXX faction I'm not hep to, this ILNFL anti-Colt hoohah is overrated.

David R. (popshots75`), Tuesday, 8 November 2005 19:17 (fifteen years ago) link

If there's any White Sox analog in the NFL this year, it's probably the Giants. (If only Tom Coughlin was Ozzie.)

hstencil (hstencil), Tuesday, 8 November 2005 19:40 (fifteen years ago) link

i would like peyton a lot more if he didn't do all that wild gesticulating and fake audible-izing before running plays. it's just annoying. also there's the story about him harrassing a female trainer at tennessee, which might or might not be true.

mookieproof (mookieproof), Tuesday, 8 November 2005 20:46 (fifteen years ago) link

I don't think it's necessarily the posters per se that is kind of like "OK wtf do the Colts gotta do here," it's a lot of different things. I mean I was just reading a recap of last nights game on ESPN today and they're all like, "Yeah whatever, no one cares, let's see who wins in the playoffs." Which of course before yesterday it was like, "Haha like they canbeat the Pats." I dunno, it is odd.

Allyzay must fight Zolton herself. (allyzay), Tuesday, 8 November 2005 21:56 (fifteen years ago) link

Ally, I think that in the national media the Colts were the overwhelming favorite to beat the Pats.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 9 November 2005 00:00 (fifteen years ago) link

I dunno, I agree with Ally. It always felt like whatever lipservice they gave to Petyon, it was just a way of getting to talk about that delightful young quarterback Tom Brady.

Anyway,I found this buried in the Kids section on Peyton's blog:

Kids Only > Puttin' Up with Peyton
Cooper Manning (older brother)

#2 - "Karate Career Cut Short"

When I was about six years old, I decided to take karate. After about two months, it was time for me to graduate from a white belt to a yellow belt. It was a big day! Two months of work, and the whole class was moving up. This was huge for a six year old!

The big day came, and Peyton and dad were in the crowd. There were fifteen students, and we had to pair off and fight each other. A friend of mine ended up without a partner after everyone paired up. You have to keep in mind that at age four, Peyton was what you may call a "chubby kid." He was over 12 pounds when he was born, and his baby fat hadn't worn away! Then again, Peyton didn't do a whole lot to lose it either! I'm sure he was scarfing down a Moon Pie or something while he was watching the match.

Finally, with a mouth-full of food, he gestures to my dad, "I'll fight him," talking about the kid who didn't have a partner. Of course my dad says ok, and Peyton, wobbles down to the mat in a pair of jeans, cowboy boots, and a country accent - looking and acting like a redneck. For some unknown reason, the karate instructor decided to let this completely random stranger out of the crowd go toe to toe with this six-year-old boy who's been taking karate for two months. Everybody just knew that Peyton didn't have a chance!

Well, the fight started and within six seconds, Peyton grabbed the kid and body-slammed him! No fancy karate moves, just plain body slammed him. The kid immediately started crying because he knew he had just gotten beat by some random kid who didn't know a thing about karate!

That day alone probably ended that kid's karate career. It also ended mineÑknowing I had been doing all this practicing for two months, and my "little" brother could probably still pick me up and body slam me! The best part was that Peyton didn't even think anything of what he had done--he just turned around and walked off the mat! He was just looking forward to getting back to the ice cream sandwich he was sucking down on the sideline!

Spoken like a true older brother...

VegemiteGrrl (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 9 November 2005 05:25 (fifteen years ago) link

Vegemite OTM - check out this recap of the Tuesday morning press on the MNF game.

Of course, Peyton's going to lose to Brady until he gets some rings:

Manning: thee great QB, drafted #1 (aka YOU MUST WIN NOW PRIMADONNA BOY), franchise savior, son of hard-luck NFL great (aka YOU MUST AVENGE ME PEYTON), kinda spazzy, stuck w/ shitty defenses for way too long but gets the blame for the team's one-dimensionality

Brady: 6th round pick, farting around in the background, OH NO PUNCTURED LUNG, lemme win some Superbowls for y'all, aren't I swell?, and so handsome too!, a True Team Player (Nice hair part, Chachi.)

David R. (popshots75`), Wednesday, 9 November 2005 06:27 (fifteen years ago) link

You wouldn't know that the national media didn't think this was, at least, a totally evenly matched game from the way they were blabbering on ESPN/MNF pregame about it. Even in that segment where they list their five best teams, they ALL said, "My #1 is the Colts...well, probably not after tonight, but we'll see I guess." WTF?

Allyzay must fight Zolton herself. (allyzay), Wednesday, 9 November 2005 14:47 (fifteen years ago) link

wtf is that the team hasn't been able to beat them for years and also that they're desperately trying to up the ratings on what was most likely going to be a blowout anyway, so we get "THE GAME OF THE YEAR" on a pair of somewhat mismatched teams with crazy history.
What's the flava, flava? DON'T BELIEVE TH' HYPE

Can I just say that thanks to this thread, I crack up every time I see Rofflesburger at gametime? After hearing his BBQ ads ("there is another 'q' that I am passionate about") and reading his somewhat inimitable "can-i-feed-the-rabbits-george" recaps ("Well, I thought it went very well, our new tight end is going to be good he was a little nervous which is to be expected, but he will be very good I do believe"), I can't help but imagine him having to make sure that he's throwing to the right team when he steps onto the field.
"Coach said after we were done, we're gettin' pizza!"

"After I take my bag to my room I head to a production meeting (where we basically talk to the guys that are announcing the game on TV so that they have some inside information to use when they talk during the game). Once I got done with that I went to dinner at Morton's with my agent and his fiance and my two buddy's Brad and Greg. After dinner I had to go to a QB meeting to talk about any last minute plays I like or don't like. After the QB meeting, we have an offensive meeting and then a team meeting. Once the team meeting was over I went up to my room and watched the end of the crazy college game day. I made some phone calls and then went to bed. Today I got up, packed up my bag, took a shower, got dressed and now I'm sitting on the bus headed to the stadium. "

When the Steelers quarterback resumed practicing this week, he realized his helmet didn't fit right. He sustained a concussion Dec. 28 against Cleveland, and spent last week getting over headaches associated with the hit. "I had a little headache after putting the helmet on because it was so tight,'' Roethlisberger said Wednesday. "But we'll deal with it and move on.''

Profootballtalk.com passes along "rumors" that suspended Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger was recently caught urinating on a Columbus (OH) golf course by a woman who supposedly now intends to press charges.

PFT's Mike Florio acknowledges that this is all rumor for now, and that the main source of the story is "multiple emails over the past two days." However, Florio does have a legitimate source who's confirmed Roethlisberger indeed was golfing in Columbus. The same source claims Big Ben was not the person urinating -- it was another member of Roethlisberger's foursome.
