Roethlisberger Would Skip Game for Child's Birth: Ben Roethlisberger and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child this fall. He told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that if it happens on game day, he'll take a pass on the Steelers game. "I'm not missing the birth of my child," he said. "There's no chance. I know some fans probably don't want to hear that, but there's no chance."
