Coincidence? Probably. January 29, 2009 Posted by Mookie
For those of my readers who watch football, you may notice the striking similarity between Rothesberger the bartender and Ben Roethlisberger, the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The reason for this is a very silly story.

A few years ago when the Steelers won the Superbowl, Ben Roethlisberger was the quarterback. I was cheering for the other team (the Seattle Seahawks, I believe) and, for whatever reason, disliked how the Steelers were playing. Whenever they made a play I would shake my fist at the screen and yell, "Roethlisbergerrrrrrrrr!!" My friends in the room found this, for whatever reason, hysterical. They told me I should somehow work my "outrage" into Dominic Deegan.

So I did.

This Sunday the Steelers are returning to the Superbowl. Rothesberger the bartender has made a (brief) return to the comic. Coincidence?

That's all from me for now.
