Steelers quarterback donates $9K to Harris County Sheriff’s Office

HOUSTON -- The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said it will use money donated by a Steelers quarterback to buy and train a new police dog.

That would make 16 dogs on its canine team.

Steelers Quarterback Ben Rothlesberger was sacked five times and left last Sunday’s Texans’ game game limping, but apparently has no hard feelings because he donated $9,000 to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

“Big Ben,” as he’s known, said he’s committed to donating money from his charitable foundation to law enforcement agencies in every city the Steelers visit this season.

That's very nice of him, I guess he's trying to do some image repair from the rape allegations a couple years ago.

He should give the $9,000 to rent a couple of linemen in each city he visits.

I'm guessing this is insurance for the next time he has a 'date' with a college girl in a bathroom stall.
