If you’re going to attend a taping of Ben Roethlisberger’s “Footbahlin” podcast, you better keep your mouth shut.
During a taping at Cinderlands Brewing in Downtown Pittsburgh with guests Bob Pompeani, Andrew McCutchen and Pat Freiermuth, Big Ben took a moment to tell the crowd to keep it down.
“If you want to chat, just go down stairs . . . we can’t hear, if you want to chat go somewhere else, seriously because I can’t even here up here,” said Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger had just started a conversation with tight end Pat Freiermuth.
He then seemed to call someone out specifically named “ticket.” Then told him “shhh.”
“That’s not me, its Chris,” ticket responded.
That got a brief chuckle from Roethlisberger before he got serious again.
“We got a lot of people that want to hear, if you want to talk I have no problem, just go in the back, thank you.”
Roethlisberger is used to recording with his buddy Spence in his spacious basement, so he may not be used to the live crowd.
“Why act that way, I mean people are going to talk, this is a public place,” said Dorin Dickerson on the Fan Morning Show.
“My man threw the game-winning touchdown pass in a Super Bowl where the crowd’s going nuts and his offensive line was garbage and he can’t focus on the guy next to him recording a podcast?” asked Adam Crowley.
Needless to say, he didn’t need to warn the crowd again.
