Where's Ben?

Last year, one of my hobbies was tracking Ben Roethlisberger's offseason. I know, I have no life. But I was simply amazed at the frequent-flyer miles he racked up, especially after, shall we say, a less-than-memorable 2006 campaign.

This year, Ben is picking up where he left off. Big Ben News, who is to Ben Roethlisberger what Dukes Court is to Duquesne Basketball, is once again providing comprehensive coverage with their exclusive Roethlisberger tracking device. I'm convinced that BBN knows where Ben's going before he does.

So what's on the agenda for #7? Well, an appearance on Jim Rome is Burning (PHENOMENAL!), a Pro Bowl press conference with Matt Hasselbeck and Larry Fitz, and a spot on the NFL Network are already in the bag. Coming up is a guest-host appearance on Fox's Best Damn Sports Show Period on February 1, the debut of his Super Bowl commercial on Sunday, and his appearance as an honoree at the 30th Annual Ed Block Courage Awards in Baltimore on March 11.

Other than that, he's busy making wish lists and ticking off Hines Ward. And then making up with Hines, which is always good news. I guess all's well that ends well.
