Ben Roethlisberger has a long way to go to earn the trust and respect of Pittsburgh Steelers fans, but the troubled quarterback did manage a very nice gesture roughly two weeks ago. Roethlisberger and his father ran into a 5-year-old boy and the boy’s dad at a golf course in suburban Pittsburgh. The boy had a Roethlisberger jersey on and the quarterback obliged by volunteering an autograph and took a picture with the boy. The father relayed the story on Steelernation.com and finished by writing: "He put a smile on my family’s face today and I’m pretty sure my son will never forget it. If he does, he’s always got a nice picture and autograph to remind him I should have never prejudged the guy like so many others. I’m going to share this story with as many as I can."
