Hanging out with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a "sausage party", complains teammate Willie Colon, who says he felt "gay" when women wanted his help getting to "Big" Ben.
The Steelers' 315 pound offensive tackle made the comments in a police interview when he recounted the events of the March 2010 evening that ended with 20-year-old Georgia college student accusing Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her in a bathroom.
"As the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) report notes, Colon described how women swarmed around the quarterback as he barhopped with friends in Milledgeville, a college town 90 miles southeast of Atlanta. According to the GBI document, Colon, 27, told investigators that he did not enjoy how "girls continued to try to talk to Roethlisberger through" him, and how the women 'were continually attempting to get Roethlisberger's attention.' So the hulking athlete bolted: 'Colon got up because he felt this was "gay" and he did not want to be used by the girls to communicate with Roethlisberger.' When Roethlisberger's posse later relocated to the VIP room of another club, Colon was not happy with the male/female ratio, terming it a 'sausage party' because 'there were too many males in the VIP room and not enough females.' To rectify the problem, only women were allowed into the exclusive section."
Well, at least one of them managed to get some that night.
