About

My support for the Pittsburgh Steelers goes back to before they won their first Super Bowl, which tells you that I’m older than a lot of Bleacher Report readers and writers. I have been a participant of varied sports for most of my life, and now have the chronic knee and back injuries to prove it! As a participant I have particularly enjoyed skiing, football, touch football and basketball. Currently I am active in Taekwondo and I hope to test for my 2nd Dan Black Belt soon.

Despite living in hockey-mad Canada, as a fan my first love is the NFL in general and the Steelers in particular. I am a strong supporter of Ottawa’s Senators, and maintain faith that they will not only make the playoffs in 2010-2011, but will be a team to be reckoned with. I have faced the reality of having my teams leave town (Montreal’s Expos) or folding (Ottawa’s CFL team, twice!)

I am a strong believer in team chemistry and in teams having a coherent, identifiable team philosophy. I believe in building through the draft rather than trades, in allowing younger players to develop slowly, and in factoring in an athlete’s character along with his physical skills. I dislike showboating, boastful athletes, and believe that when you score a goal or a touchdown you should act like you’ve done it before. Rehearsed celebrations are a pet peeve of mine.

I believe that being a fan of a team does not require blind support for all their decisions: it does not preclude you from being critical when you think they have made a move in the wrong direction.

I am a strong believer in education. I have spent enough time in school to obtain two undergraduate degrees as well as Masters degrees in both Criminology and Educational Counselling. I am employed as a teacher and as a consultant in the areas of Reality Therapy, Lead Management and Choice Theory.

    mark sanchez was accuse of touching a girl in his first year of college at USC. I am in college and i been accuse already of touching somebody by my ex, girls lie in college everybody knows that. Ben was in the nfl and is an adult already he wasn't in college Ben was in a bar and there was a drunk girl by mistake in the mens room and supposedly he touched her. It is completely different, and im surprise somebody will bring that up about Mark.

    last time i checked its the QB that throws TD's and completions. The defense is meant to stop them from scoring and get the ball back to the QB. In Super Bowl XLIII I saw both teams score and the defense dint do all the scoring by itself so ben roethlisberger has something to do with that. it takes the whole team to win a super bowl which means the offense and defense.
