No telling what’s being thought of in the mind of a lunatic

Of Mice And Ben

with one comment

Oh for God’s sake, here we go again.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being investigated in an allegation of sexual assault at a Georgia nightclub, police said Friday.

Officers said the alleged assault occurred early Friday in Milledgeville, about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta. The player owns a home nearby.

Roethlisberger and the alleged victim have been interviewed and the woman was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and released, Malone said.

Separately, Roethlisberger has been sued by a woman who claims he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. My policy on rape stories is thus: If the accusation is made shortly after the alleged incident, I give it credence. If it takes place a long time afterward, 99 percent of the time I don’t care. This allegation took place shortly after the alleged incident. I will withhold opinion until more facts come to light.

In the meantime, whether or not Roethlisberger actually committed sexual assault, I want to know what the hell Ben was thinking. Dude, don’t put yourself in these situations. You live a bit on the wild side by scrambling around on the field trying to extend plays and by riding motorcycles without a helmet. Shouldn’t that be enough thrill-seeking?

Ben is starting to remind me of Lennie from “Of Mice And Men.” Someone needs to keep him away from the rabbits. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read the book. It’s not long. Hell, in high school I read it on the school bus ride home and finished it up the next morning on the bus ride to school. OK, I also had about 15-20 in class time, too. But that’s not the point.

What is the point?

Oh, yeah. Ben.
