Big Ben's Prom Date Still a Browns Fan

A woman who apparently went to a dance with Ben Roethlisberger when they were kids showed up at last week's Browns-Steelers game with a sign showing a picture of the two of them and thanking Roethlisberger for the dance, but informing him that she's still a Browns fan. But my favorite part of the sign is at the bottom, where she writes, "PS-CALL ME!" Somehow I think the only person calling her will be Brian Jackson.

The sign was cute. Beyond that putting this up for discussion seems to be only for the foul-mouthed.

If Israel or anyone else could explain what is foul-mouthed about this, I would really appreciate it.

My guess is that "Roethlisberger" is some sort of vile insult in ancient Lapp.

MDS - I think that there is a good chance a post like this could lead to some inapprorpiate comments, perhaps regarding young "Kristy" and her four chins.

What really amuses me is that young Ben looks like current Eli.

Damn attention whore looks like she could stop the run, that's for sure.

Don't encourage this or you'll have fat, former babysitters bringing naked bathtub photos of Carson Palmer to games.

MDS, I saw this photo elsewhere and there were some crude comments that messed up a cute story. I didn't see that FO needed to add to that.

Maybe I'm just a prude.
