Ben Roethlisberger is SOFT and not in a good way like us here at Soft 7 Sports. I mean soft as in Big Ben is a baby back bitch. I’m not talking about how he leaves every game in a walking boot. And I’m not talking about how no loss can ever be his fault. I’m talking about how saying anything to him on Twitter will get you blocked almost immediately. If you want of satisfaction of being blocked by a real, verified professional athlete, Big Ben is your guy.
I know he has an assistant run his official Twitter account, but he/she has to be getting orders from somewhere. Now, if you follow me on Twitter, and I highly recommend you do (@Soft7Wic), you know that I was recently blocked by Ben Roethlisberger. I’m not upset about it at all, this was actually my intention. Every sports blogger gets blocked by #7. It is a rite of passage that results in the official title of lowercase “b” blogger. Big Ben is literally better protected from sports writers than he is from defensive lineman who are trying to hurt him. Wanna see how easy it is?
All it took was 4 tweets:
I wanted to see if I would get blocked for literally anything. I know this wasn’t my best work; it wasn’t supposed to be. Just wanted to gauge how much I could get away with.
He threw like 3 or 4 picks that game at Cleveland.
Really thought this one would do the trick. I guess not though. For the next one, I knew I would have to go for the jugular. I was losing hope and knew I would need something absolutely diabolical if I was going gain lowercase “b” blogger status. Here was my last attempt:
I was blocked THAT DAY. That’s literally all it took. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not only did I get blocked for this, a buddy of mine got blocked too just for liking the tweet. To test if this was really the breaking point, Juice (@soft7Juice) tweeted the same thing to him and was also blocked in just one tweet. I cannot imagine having that fragile of an ego while running somebody else’s twitter account. I love that this is a real thing that happens. I have but one request for all the Soft 7’s out there reading this: get blocked by Big Ben and send me screenshots on Twitter of what you said to make it happen. I’m counting on you guys.
