Oh joy - Ben Roethlisberger is getting married this week. Which I couldn't care less about, except insofar as it might help him avoid other non-football activities that might wind up in the papers. But for those of you who do, it's being held on Saturday at a church in Ohio Township. He'll be marrying Ashley Harlan, a 26-year-old physicians' assistant from New Castle.â†µ
The wedding is expected to be guarded, and attendees will need to present an ID to get in. About 12 police officers will be working at the event. All of Roethlisberger's fellow Steelers have been invited, so the wedding should be quite large. The guests won't be notified about the location of the reception until the end of the ceremony.â†µ
Roethlisberger has been vague about the details of the wedding, and there's been an obvious effort on his and Harlan's part to keep the press from interfering much, at least so far.â†µ
