Something must have been in the water before Super Bowl XLV, because both the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers began saying things that made kindergartners shake their heads.
One culprit: Ben Roethlisberger. When asked how the Steelers could win the big game, he had this to say:
“I think for me, I mean, obviously, we have to try to score more points than they do.”
Now, whether or not you think he was joking doesn't matter. Quotes like these leak from athletes almost daily, they just happen to get noticed on the big stages.
That's how the saying, "If a man says something reflecting his idiocy in a forest, and no one is there to hear it, is he still an idiot?" came to exist.
In Roethlisberger's defense, he's not nearly the worst. Press conferences, color commentary and trash talk have tickled sports fans' funny bones since the dawn of time, so there's a deep collection of these quotable gems.
So who's the most memorable?
