The Post-Gazette's Colin Dunlap looks into the pure silliness regarding Ben Roethelisberger's alleged recent golfing trip to suburban Columbus ...
"Someone playing golf with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had to go.
To the bathroom.
At least that’s what the reports say.
According to reports at ProFootballTalk and TMZ, a Dublin, Ohio woman named Nan Fowler wasn’t pleased on Friday just before 7 p.m. when a man playing golf stopped to urinate on her property, which runs adjacent to the Country Club at Muirfield Village.
According to a report, Fowler first called the pro shop at the course to complain, describing what clothes the offender was wearing. Someone working in the pro shop informed Fowler that the man was Roethlisberger.
Fowler then called police, who arrived at the pro shop and spoke with representatives from the course. Police determined there was no crime committed, never interviewed Roethlisberger and that no charges would be filed.
Seems maybe everyone might be blowing this a wee bit out of proportion and that someone just felt like leaking a story to the media.

Colin's excellent use of puns is appropriate, because this "story" is fairly ridiculous. I'm not at all a golfer, but golf courses are massive expanses of land, and sometimes during play, nature calls. What else can you do, so long as you're subtle about it?
