QUARTERBACK BEN ROETHLISBERGER WILL LIKELY MAKE THE TRIP…
AS WELL AS COACH MIKE TOMLIN…
BUT HARRISON, A two-time PRO BOWL LINEBACKER, SAYS THE TRIP IS NO BIG DEAL .
HE ADDED THAT HE ALSO SKIPPED THE WHITE HOUSE VISIT FOLLOWING THE STEELERS’ CHAMPIONSHIP IN 2006.
HARRISON TOLD WTAE-TV – QUOTE – “If you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when don’t win the Super Bowl. So as far as I’m concerned, he would have invited Arizona if they had won.”
HARRISON RECORDED A CAREER-HIGH 16 SACKS FOR THE STEELERS LAST SEASON.
AND IN FEBRUARY’S SUPER BOWL WIN OVER ARIZONA , HE INTERCEPTED A KURT WARNER PASS AND RAMBLED 100 YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN.
IT WAS THE LONGEST PLAY IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY.
SO — WHILE HARRISON CAN MAKE THE GOAL – LINE TO GOAL – LINE JAUNT, HE’LL PASS ON THE TREK TO 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.
