"A Brain Worth Saving" joke
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who four months ago won the Super Bowl in just his second NFL season, was seriously hurt in a motorcycle wreck yesterday in which he wasn't wearing a helmet.
Roethlisberger underwent seven hours of surgery after suffering a broken jaw, broken nose and cracking his head open.
Answering reporters' questions from his hospital bed, the football star had this to say:
"Listen, I get paid many millions of dollars to wear a helmet at my day job. Game after handsomely paid game I have to sweat inside that confining, life-saving device. When I'm off the field and on my bike, I want to be free and unencumbered. I want to be able to feel the wind in my hair and, more recently, a windshield against my face. Because that's'my time.' Hey, why are you all twins?"
A visibly exhausted Roethlisberger then kissed a framed bedside photo of Gary Busey and drifted off into a light coma.
