Somebody Sue This Man!

If only Nan Fowler could see this! For those of you who don’t understand that reference, Nan Fowler is the woman who was allegedly considering pressing charges against Ben Roethlisberger, or a member of his foursome, for urinating on the side of a golf course. Cameras caught a golfer doing the same during a wind delay at the British Open on Friday. Check out the video of a golfer peeing in the bushes at the British Open, courtesy of Deadspin:

I really, really hope this isn’t becoming a trend. Peeing on the side of a golf course where people may be able to see? That’s just horrible. Someone needs to do something to clean this new fad up, and fast.

Did Big Ben Pee on a Golf Course?

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.
