As part of post-retirement life, former Pittsbrugh Steeler’s QB Ben Roethlisberger is debuting a new podcast, Footbahlin. His official Twitter account announced the news and provided a snippet of the show on Sunday morning.
‘Footbahlin with Ben Roethlisberger’— BigBen7.com (@_BigBen7) September 4, 2022
After years of sampling unique beers & talking football w/friends, we’ve made it a show! Prepare for uneducated craft beer reviews, over-educated football insight & a list of special guests that won't disappoint!https://t.co/MxXh3ZXi0D
As the clip illustrates, Big Ben and host Spence will discuss Ben’s playing days. That video showed Roethisberger talk about steppinginto the lineup in 2004, a rookie in a locker room full of veterans.
“It was like, ‘don’t screw up,” he said in the excerpt. “It wasn’t like, ‘I gotta go out and be the man.’ It was, ‘don’t screw up because there were guys counting on you.'”
The show will be posted on the Channel Seven YouTube channel. No official date for the first episode release has been announced but it appears the first episode has already been recorded. The drop will likely coincide with the start of football season, the first time Roethlisberger hasn’t been on a Steeler’s roster since 2003. The show promises a list of unnamed special guests along the way.
