PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger got the privacy he wanted for his wedding Saturday, with police providing tight security around the church in affluent Ohio Township where he and Ashley Harlan were married and tinted windows on expensive cars leaving much of the guest list a mystery.
Still, the hope of a glimpse at the Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback, his new bride and the dozens of team luminaries who turned out for the ceremony was enough for Dolly Metz to sit in a car -- complete with Steelers covers on the headrests -- in a nearby parking lot with the windows down in 90 degree heat.

But, will the Steelers make the Super Bowl?
“Ben is looking forward to his first experience with consensual sex tonight.”
You’re such a sweet person and your screen name fits, you’re sweet just like most of the people in Minneapolis are sweet...not.
Mean and nasty is more like it.
I wonder how he explained what happened in Georgia? Doubtless she even cares. Who would knowingly marrying a rapist?
I think you answered your own question in #5.
Welcome back to Freep City.
It’s good to be back..
You're right. Where are my manners? I should have realized that NFL an quarterback, that also happen to like brutalizing and penetrating uncooperative young women in maintenance closets while his posse keeps watch, is a delecate creature that needs my respect and kindness as a commentator on the internet.
Sorry Ben. My bad. Nice Super Bowl performance, BTW.

What would satisfy you more, nice person?
His execution or castration.
Just a football fan without a hate agenda.

Neither. Since they couldn't make a criminal case and he served his penance with the league, I have no problem with him continuing to play.
But what kind of twisted mind considers the mocking and belittlement of the sexual perversion of an obvious repeat rapist to be some form of cruelty? Where's your compassion for the victims, Mr. Nice Guy/Gal? You've never heard that kindness to the perp is cruelty to the victim?
Doesn't strike me as the sort of stance somebody so concerned somebody so enamored with sweetness would take. Is gettig pinned to a sink while forcefully penetrated by somebody twice your size your idea of kindness? Is just pretending that never happened, to the point of considering mockery of the perp on the internet to be some form of persecution, one short year later you idea of kindness? Rather unkind of you. Your mother would be ashamed.
Sounds like Ben has grown up, good for him, I wish the new couple all the best.
Post of the day! LOL!
The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier strapless, ivory silk gown. The bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm strapless gowns in slate gray and carried clusters of blush pink roses.
Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Dan Rooney and Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux were among the VIPs. Even WWE professional wrestler Triple H was seen entering the convention center.
The couple went to great lengths to keep details of their wedding plans secret convention center brass posted fliers indicating a movie shoot was taking place from July 18-24 and their wedding day was no different.
Ohio Township police blocked access to the church for hours before the ceremony, and Pittsburgh police and a private security firm controlled access to the convention center, shutting down 10th Street between Fort Duquesne Boulevard and Penn Avenue for much of the day.
The Roethlisbergers, who could not be reached for comment and did not issue a statement, required guests to present a pink sheet of paper to gain access to the church and reception. Once at the convention center, guests received a gray rubber bracelet and another pink slip regarding the event.
Bomb-sniffing dogs swept the convention center earlier in the day. Lt. Jack Kearney of the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, who handles security for the Steelers, was at the reception.
Police and private security officers were scheduled to remain at the convention center until 2 a.m., police said.
The service in the nondenominational church lasted less than an hour. Harlan walked down the aisle with her father, Dave, to “Threads of Love.”
I guess you left your sense of humor in 'Nam.
Guess you can't be too careful with all of those Browns fans lurking about.
But at least he kept his watch!
“I guess you left your sense of humor in ‘Nam.”
Please help me understand where the humor is in “Minn’s” comments about Ben Roethligsburger’s wedding. Then, perhaps, I can respond to your comment above.
You are either a relative of his or you have no sense of humor. Either way, you're coming off as a tool.
I get just as upset when people take cheap shots at Nolan Ryan, Ronald Reagan, Jim Brown or Rush Limbaugh. Cheap shots are just an indication that the person making the charge has no respect for the target.
It was a cheap shot that got me angry. OK, I’m done.
Rush, Nolan Ryan and Jim Brown? You are off your rocker. No comparison.
Hate agenda? The guy raped someone!
I'll keep my plain vanilla life, thanks very much.
While some people cosider obtuseness a virtue, it is generally just the obtuse that do.
That six game suspension he willingly accepted and all the contrition he attempted to exhibit was for what exactly, if not for a rape he was very fortunate to not be criminally charged for?
To bad it does not mean women are safe from being raped by him.
Proof? Are you serious? The only reason he is not hoeing beets in Valdosta is because the victim declined to prosecute.
>>> Ben is looking forward to his first experience with consensual sex tonight.
You just might be correct. I don’t recall ever even hearing of this guy before but he does seem to get around.
Ben Roethlisberger Beats 3rd Rape Charge
April 12, 2010 Latest News-Politicol Celebrity favoritism strikes again and those who heard today that Ben Roethlisberger beat his 3rd rape charge are not accepting the findings of the district attorney who dropped the charges. Alcohol plays a part in all rapes however it is not a reason to drop charges.
The alleged rape was in Miledgeville Georgia and the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence gathered by the DA office. This man was accused 3 times already although his case of being sued by a woman in Reno Andrea McNulty is still pending from 2 years ago.
That new bride has to be more nervous than Michael Vick’s new pet Cocker Spaniel...
