Even the zoo doesn't like Big Ben

Big Ben doesn't even belong in a zoo, that's how despised he is in Pittsburgh now. A Pitt zoo has removed Ben's images from their displays which is basically the Pennsylvania way of telling you to go eff yourself. Can't wait until he's starting games for Oakland next year.

A life-size image of Roethlisberger has been part of a display that compares the height of elephants to other creatures. But the facility is having a new sign made that will replace Roethlisberger's image with one of former Pittsburgh Penguins star and team owner Mario Lemieux.

"Mr. Roethlisberger isn't the most popular person lately," Tracy Gray, the zoo's manager of public and media relations, said.

Well I mean they still called him Mr. Roethlisberger. That's got to count for something right? I'm wondering if the zoo was worried that the Big Ben displays would try and have their way with the Zebras.
