Ben Roethlisberger has announced he is considering retirement from the NFL. Though he initially cited age and his elbow injury as factors, the two-time Super Bowl champion later admitted the real reason was his impatience to realize his true goal – opening and running a traditional Tea Shop.

“The only reason I got into football in the first place was to earn enough capital to pursue my dream, which I’ve now done about 10,000 times over.”

Roethlisberger cites peer pressure and not wanting to let the fans down as the reason he continued in football for so long, as well as the fact that no-one appeared to take him seriously when he opened up about his true passion in life.

“Football’s okay but nothing makes me happier than steeping the perfect cup of tea and serving it in fine china together with a selection of petit fours.”

He already has a property in mind for Ben’s Tea Shoppe in the city’s East End, and will use his free time this season to source high quality loose leaf teas in preparation for his new venture.

“Maybe I have one or two more healthy seasons with the Steelers in me, but mentally I’m already laying out doilies on tables.”

  1. Honestly, I suppose such articles should be printed more
    and more because of the present situation and contemporary demands
    of the Millenials. I eagerly read them to find some new information that
    will correspond to my needs, such specific information I found on https://authorhollynewhouseparanormalbooks.com/business-classes/. Each of us has a
    proper comprehension of the information given to the public, so I truly enjoyed the article and expected you to supply
    us with more things like this one.

  2. Something tells me that those MILLIONS of dollars to play a “GAME” will override the RETIREMENT thoughts. Where else can he make $1,million plus for 1 game ??? Do the math,,at 16 games a season. As the saying goes,, “BULLSHIT WALKS,,, MONEY TALKS”!!
