A Recent History of Epic Athlete Benders

Ben Roethlisberger

Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers
Date:
3/5/2010

Not to be confused with the popular music festival, "Benapalooza" was a horribly ill fated, tritely named event to celebrate Ben Roethlisberger's 28th birthday. Since nothing says "party" quite like industrial, small town America, Roethlisberger and his crew planned a bar crawl in Milledgeville, GA. 

While barhopping near Georgia College, the Steelers quarterback took a liking to a 20-year-old coed who would ultimately accuse him of raping her. Roethlisberger reportedly bought shots for the girl and her friends accompanied with the touching toast, "Shots for my bitches!" He called the girl "a tease." And, at one point, denoted the popular 'DTF' acronym by telling her, "I'm not down to fuck, but I like to fuck girls." Thanks for the clarifying, Big Ben!

According to the alleged victim, Roethlisberger followed her into a bathroom "with his penis out of his pants," closed the door behind him and sexually assaulted her. Criminally charges were ultimately dropped against the two-time Super Bowl champion, but the NFL suspended him for six games as a result of the incident.
