People find religion a lot once they go to prison.
The real test is when they get out of jail, some of them change their lives while others just go back to doing crime, but now with a bible in their glove compartment.
I don’t know if Big Ben is a changed man, but he is trying to convince us he is. The NFL Chick has the story.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to marry his on-and-off girlfriend of 5+ years Ashley Harlan on July 23rd, exactly one week before the Steelers open up with training camp (if the lockout ends). While Ben’s upcoming nuptials aren’t a big deal to his camp, it’s been getting a lot of attention in the news since the story broke last summer. Big Ben doesn’t understand all of the hoopla over it.
“I was surprised at how much media attention it was getting — it’s just an engagement,” he said. “I never expected it to be on the front pages of all the papers and websites. There was speculation what our invitations would look like and who is coming! It almost seemed surreal, it was like a movie or something, it was weird.”
Ben also said they are staying at separate locations because of their religious beliefs. They won’t move in together until they are married.
They aren’t cohabiting but he said nothing about them not having sex, so I guess those are new age religious beliefs.
Miss Harlan is either delusion thinking that Big Ben will be able to put Bathroom Ben to rest or she knows that he truly is a changed man.
Only time and bathrooms will tell.
