Sounds like my kind of guy.

Ben Roethlisberger is a professional athlete, but he isn't exactly in the best physical shape.  In fact, NFL insider Jay Glazer said the Steelers' quarterback is "allergic" to the gym.

Glazer went on to say that Big Ben spends the off-season drinking and playing golf.  He was answering questions from fans about Roethlisberger's workout routine for The Athletic when he made the comments.

"First of all, let’s not put the words fitness and Ben Roethlisberger together, they are allergic to each other," Glazer wrote.

"There is no fitness in Ben Roethlisberger. His idea of a great offseason workout program is doing one yoga session, playing golf, and drinking some beer."

That's one way to make friends.  Unless, of course, you're already not a fan of a guy.

Then what Glazer did was a really good way to let people know that you really, really don't like a guy.  You know journalism at its absolute finest.
