this is called the show
You already knew that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has the “Roethlisburger”. But did you know the rookie phenom also has his own official blog?

(I checked it out on Roethlisberger’s official website, and the blog is indeed for real.)

The Roethlis-blog is a fully-feature weblog, powered and hosted by TypePad and equipped with commenting capability. That’s somewhat unusual - celebrity blogs often don’t include an easy means for feedback, understandably so. (On the downside, there doesn’t appear to be a way to trackback.)

As you’d expect, given his schedule, Roethlisberger doesn’t post every single day. But it is updated pretty often, and it provides a good window on the life of a first-year NFL player. He’s doing a better job than most blogging sports figures: Of the blogs cited as examples in Bryan Curtis’ “Jock Blogging” piece for Slate back in May, only a couple (notably NBA owner Mark Cuban’s Blog Maverick) are updated with any frequency.
