Wow, his ego hasn't subsided any. He was so desperate for attention that he had to go for his mail himself? Couldn't get one of his "bodyguards" to pick up whatever he picked up? Couldn't have the Steelers FedEx it to him for next-morning delivery?

Michael Jackson, you have some competition....

Do you really think he was just there to get his mail? As Ellis Cannon put it there were a couple of meetings with the principal today. Holmes for sure got a nice talking to by Cowher and company and Ben either had a nice heart to heart with coach or was getting checked out by the doctors and probably both.

Also, don't be surprised if Ben was already being fit for a new helmet. There was already an article in the Trib that the Steelers equipment people were in contact with helmet manufacturers just days after his accident. He will probably be wearing on of the new revolution helmets this year (Porter and Polamalu wear the funky looking design that has tested better to prevent concussions as there is more protection for the sides of the face).

The kid walked into the office with a hood over his face. Your right junior, his ego is so big, that's why he gives a statement every chance he get's pertaining to his accident. I mean, he has given so many public interviews since his accident. It's because he's dying for attention and to pump his ego.

It's amazing. The kid almost died and we still have complete morons busting on the kid. He's 24!!! I'm sure many of you have never made mistakes at that age. We all know you live your lives perfectly and have never screwed up at such a young age. Get over yourselves. :roll:

I like how this was the biggest story in Pittsburgh tonight.

BREAKING NEWS: We're live here at Steeler's Headquarters where Big Ben has just arrived to... pick up his mail!!! Details are sparse right now, but Ben went into the complex about 20 minutes ago, and could be opening some of your letters right now as we speak. Back to you, Sally.

Meanwhile, downtown, four people were shot and murdered today, city hall burned down, and there was a twenty car pileup in the Liberty Tunnels. Next at six, we will have more coverage of Big Ben at Steeler's Headquarters, as well as a live helicopter view of Ben's front yard where he may grill out later and eat dinner.
