Maybe he did. Maybe he didn’t. Who cares, right? Wrong. Pro Football Talk has been made aware of a rumor that alleges Ben Roethlisberger may have urinated on a golf course while golfing in Columbus, Ohio. Although this seems like it’s not a big deal, a woman named Nan Fowler supposedly witnessed the act and was not only offended; she’s thinking about pressing charges.
Like anyone else who’s had a go at him, I’ve taken my fair share of shots at Roethlisberger when I felt he deserved it. This, on the other hand, is completely ridiculous. Give the guy a break. If you’re a male and you’ve golfed more than a handful of times in your life, you’d be lying if you said you’ve never peed on the course. Supposedly, it was someone else in Big Ben’s foursome that took the wiz and Ben intervened and tried to calm Fowler down when she became upset.
The fact that this woman is thinking about pressing charges leads me to believe that she found out it was Roethlisberger, saw an opportunity, and has decided to try to profit from the incident. I’d almost understand her complaining to a manager and attempting to get some cash knocked off of her greens fee, but she thinks the legal system should get involved? Let’s hope nothing comes of this. If not, I’ll be the first to flip-flop from my prior viewpoint and say that Big Ben can’t catch a break.
