Roethlisberger is a “Girl”


The clearest example of the “success” of my fantasy football team can be seen by noticing that in a 2 QB league, I was left starting only one quarterback for multiple weeks. That QB? The lowest ranked field general in the NFL, one Matt Hasselback. Sigh.

So, if I actually cared about fantasy football I’d be really saddened by this, fortunately, I don’t! Thankfully I can instead pay attention to how Hasselback seems to be an actually cool dude, and one with a good sense of humor. Take this story out of Seattle about Hasselback spending the day with his new buddy, sixth grader Andy Co.

Hasselback started the day off by showing up at Co’s house in a limo, playing some Madden–Hasselback’s Seahawks lost there too, to the 49’ers no less–before going to Andy’s school and talking with the students there.

This was all arranged because Co won a contest sponsored by the NFL supporting their “Play 60” campaign to push kids to do 60 minutes of exercise a day.

The assembly was interrupted by a fire drill, but Hasselback took it all in stride and had a good time. During the Q+A a girl asked, “Do you think girls should be allowed to play in the NFL?”

“Girls can play in the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger plays for the Steelers, right?” Hasselbeck quipped, backtracking immediately saying “Joking. Totally joking. That was a joke.”

    Hey man, you beat Tristan’s team twice. Which some would argue means you had the better team…

    Tristan loses sleep over this, no doubt.
