The 2005 season turned out even better than Ben Roethlisberger imagined, and his first Super Bowl victory wasn't the only one that involved a ring.
That August during training camp at Saint Vincent College, he met a Steelers fan from New Castle named Ashley Harlan. This summer, only a week before the Steelers are scheduled to report to training camp (provided a lockout of the players is lifted by then), Roethlisberger and Ms. Harlan will marry, on July 23.
"I think a small part of her is hoping we hold out for a week so we can honeymoon," Roethlisberger said today. "I told her I was laughing with coach [Mike] Tomlin; he said 'You guys might have to have the honeymoon suite at Saint Vincent.'"
The Steelers 29-year-old quarterback spoke for the first time publicly since the Super Bowl during an interview with the Post-Gazette at his home near North Park in Allegheny County this afternoon. He confirmed for the first time the news that broke of his engagement to Ms. Harlan, 26, over Christmas and talked about his future wife and their summer wedding plans.
Full story in tomorrow's Post-Gazette.
