UPDATE: Best Week Ever has pics of the Watchmen premiere, and this is clearly Big Ben. You make the call.
TMZ released some photos earlier of what look like Ben Roethlisberger’s 27th birthday party in Las Vegas, which was held at Tao nightclub on Friday night. In other news, some people can still afford to fly to Vegas. But seriously, doesn’t he look überpuffy here? Even for him, that’s a puffy dude. He doesn’t even resemble the puffy quarterback that just won the Super Bowl last month. I see some larger gentlemen in the background that could easily be Willie Colon, Darnell Stapleton and Trai Essex, who were rumored to be in attendance. But I only see one Asian guy, and I’m pretty sure that’s neither Charlie Batch or PGA golfer Anthony Kim, who also made the trip. Eh, maybe they were all stung by bees.
Whatever. After these were taken, he probably ate marshmallows out of the ass of the three hottest girls there. Mmm, marshmallows. That would explain a lot.
