I was going to root for Ben Roethlisberger in the Super Bowl because in him I saw a man who I shared a common experience with, including being suspended for something that was never proven in a court of law. So I wanted the Steelers to win, and I thought I would meet him at Dallas and hang out with him for a while, but he did not return my calls.
This crushed me. I guess Ben thought that now he was trying to be like a Mickey Mouse guy who everyone likes. I tried to do the same thing once and my advice to him is it does not work. After my first suspension I tried to work at women’s shelters to show that I did not really mean what I said, which is not important to get into, but I was often booed and had garbage thrown at me when I tried to explain my side of the story and my ideas about political correctness run amok. I think that the same thing will happen to Ben Roethlisberger.
Instead he decided to ignore me even though I know a ton of good spots in Dallas that photographers don't know about where he could have gotten trashed and had a good time. So I am glad he lost, because you do not go against Reiser. When he threw that interception I was like "ha ha Reiser is the king."
