James Harrison among possible guests for Roethlisberger’s wedding

AP

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will get married tomorrow.  Making the festivities potentially more interesting could be the presence of linebacker James Harrison.

Per Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, several Steelers are under the impression that Harrison will attend.

In a Men’s Journal interview, Harrison criticized Roethlisberger for his performance during Super Bowl XLV.

Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again,” Harrison said. “Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning.  You ain’t that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does.”  The remarks dominated the news cycle for a couple of days.

La Canfora reports that various members of the Steelers organization, including ownership, front-office employees, and coach Mike Tomlin, received permission to attend the nuptials notwithstanding the still-ongoing lockout.

  1. With the passage of a new CBA looming and the lockout being lifted, Roethlisberger won’t be able to go on a full-fledged honeymoon trip with his new bride. Instead, a rented Porta Potty will be made available for the bride and groom to consumate their marriage in after the reception.

  2. Congratulations Ben! All the haters are hoping this trivial mess will divide the Steeler Nation.

    Go Steelers!!!!!!!!!!1

  3. Now I understand the delay in voting! There are more important things to be handled first. And just where are the lovely couple registered so we can all send them a gift? Bed, Bath and One Stall Beyond?

  4. Finnaly we know why the NFLPA are dragging their feet; Ben needs to have his honeymoon.

    I hear the New Bride to be is a Patriots Fan!

  5. Will the wedding take place in a nightclub restroom? Or is that where the honeymoon will be? Will Men’s Journal be there to cover Harrison crashing the festivities?

  6. I WONDER HOW BENS BODY GUARDS CONVINCED (DRAGGED) THIS POOR GIRL INTO AGREEING TO MARRY HIM??????????????????????

  7. Where do you dig this up? Dang. You’re going to make me a believer.

    Hey – a good QB is like the leader of the United Nations. He welcomes all important countries – including those from Linebacker land.

  8. Hey Big Jen,
    remember on your wedding night….NO means NO!!!!! (but after that if you sill want a piece, just get your bodygaurd to take her to the bathroom!)

    Stay Classy!

  9. Clean up the bathroom and fill up the condom dispensers!!!! Big Ben is having a wedding at a hall near you!!!

  10. Even if he isn’t invited, I heard harrison was gonna pull the roethlisberger method and not take “no” for an answer

  11. Actually, the haters are hoping that the young lady in Midgeville wasn’t too emotionally scarred from what happened, and are hoping that Big Ben will one day be accountable.

  12. Best of luck and Congratulations to both Ben and his bride in there marriage. Here’s to you two enjoying a long and happy life together.

    Hope the skies are sunny and not too hot in Pittsburgh today.

    A sounds like the beginning of a bad joke…”a woman beater and a drunk driver goes to a rapists wedding….”

    Candidate for post of the day

  16. The couple are running a couple of specials @the wedding reception…..

    BYOB….bring your own bodyguard for the bathroom rendevous

    Girls night……Under 21 college girls drinks are free……

    Georgia police have been hired to patrol the reception in case things get out of hand – hey, the lockout is ending soon and we cant have jail time……

    Free Legal advice in the foyer…..consult before you insult

    Twitter table available for moronic tweets during the reception…..

    Designated Drivers available for rejection for those who think they are never too drunk….

  17. I hear, married or not married, the management at Reynolds Plantation in GA stills recommends the female staff keep some distance between him and them.

  18. Perfect Irony – Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson show up and put the wood to the bride and maid of honor in the reception hall bathroom stall.

  19. Kind of weird that he’d schedule his wedding so close to the start of training camp….unless he knew he’d have extra time this year.

  20. As a Pats fan, I wish TB had married a homebody type girl like this one instead of that elitist patronizing ***** he did marry.

    That pic above is too funny…remind anyone of Eddie Murphy’s face in his “HALF???” skit?

  21. Not in your lifetime buddy!! The steelers are a mess and Benny will pack on at least 30 more lbs of gelatanous flab now that he’s married,making him even less mobile. The Steelers are on the down, and here come the Browns!
