Waste of Space Monday


Just when I thought I did not have a topic for WOS Monday, I hear through the grapevine also known as my family, that Big Ben Rothlisberger was hurt pretty bad in a motorcycle accident due to the fact that the big dumb ox had no helmet on. NICE. Of course I hope he is ok, but at this point, I am just kind of disgusted.

Good example to set for all those kids up there in Da Burgh and all over the US who wear your jersey because you inspire them.

I don't understand any idiot who does not wear a helmet.

Hellooo....fast speed....your head on the pavement...umm it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which one will win the battle of your head vs. the pavement..DUH!

According to Fanball, Big Ben broke his jaw, fractured his left sinus cavity bone, lost most of his teeth, suffered a nine-inch laceration to the back of his head, and severely injured both of his knees. Oye. Keeping my fingers crossed that he'll be ok.

Um, not to move COMPLETELY off-topic...but if you shaved that beard off of his face I'd jump that in a second!

Ahem. So, back to motorcycle safety.

I'll jump him fur and all!

And very sorry to hear about his accident.

I wonder if he'll wear a helmet from now on... moron!

Well, I hope he's OK, but it is really dumb to not wear a helmet.

I totally agree with you. I guess he thought he was to cool for school to wear a helmet. Dumbshit.

Ugg, one of my friends died in a motorcycle accident because he didnt have his helmet on. Every time I see someone riding without one, I just shudder. :(

I was coming here to see if you had heard about this yet. It was a pretty dumb decision on his part. I hope he is okay.

No idea who this is, but it's always a STUPID choice to not wear a helmet.

I'm expecting someone to start throwing insults and names in my direction for this...

After losing two very important people in my life to motorcycle accidents where in both instances they were wearing helmets, I'm not thoroughly convinced that an accident of that caliber would have been any less of a massacre if a helmet was involved.

I'm with SFG on this one tho... Let's just all pray that the kids that look up to him actually learn from his mistakes and take safety on the road more seriously. Having a proper fear of motorcycles, both in a car and on two wheels, is what is going to keep our loved ones coming home at night.

Whooo what a shitstorm going on up here in PA over this! The media is crucifying him for riding without a helmet, and for eiding period after he was advised not to not only from the coach but many other players as well. People are completley pissed at his disreguard for himself and his team. His hero rating has declined considerabley. I know hes technically just a kid, but to be so irresponsible is just mind boggeling.

Thank you Governer Rendell for lifting the helmet law- asshole.

Yeah my first thought when this happened was "What the fuck was he thinking?!!"
