Big Ben Roethisberger under fire

Ben Roethisberger has driven a bumpy road in the NFL over the last few years.  He had an incredible rookie season and became the face of the City of Steel, showing guts and bringing glory to one of the more dedicated sports towns in the United States.  

Then, in the off-season, he crashed his motorcycle and suffered serious injuries, but was able to recover and bring his game back full swing the following season.  

The Bus, Jerome Bettis, received his championship ring with Big Ben at the helm.  Then last year, the Steelers rolled on to the Super Bowl and captured the league’s championship, effectively sealing the legacy of Big Ben in Pittsburg’s sports hero lore books.

Can you really be scared to death? And other weird ways that may invite Death home

It’s common to hear of someone dying of a broken heart, or being scared to death, common as in just kidding or pure jest…right? Well, maybe not.

According to an article published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, there have been cases documented of people actually dying from strong emotions.

Some of the examples include Roman emperor Nerva (A.D. 30-98), who died due to a fit of anger directed at some senator who offended him; a 13th century pope (Innocent IV) was said to have died of grief when his army was overthrown, and it was also told that some American patriots died of sheer happiness after finding out that General Cornwallis’s men had been defeated (more like creamed) at Yorktown.

G. L. Engel, author of the study, also gathered 170 recent accounts of death due to life disturbing events like the death of someone close, threat of injury or death, death upon reuniting with someone long lost, grief, death by mourning or on an anniversary, happy endings…etc.
