Why Leave Out Tommy Maddox?

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and CBS Sportsline both reported a story in which a man is accused of impersonating Steelers quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Brian St. Pierre so that women would go out with him. The Post-Gazette has a picture of Brian Jackson (the impersonator), Roethlisberger and St. Pierre. Jackson looks nothing like either Steelers QB.

My favorite part of the story is at the end of the CBS article. "When the woman did watch a Steelers game, she saw the real Brian St. Pierre on the screen and realized that Jackson was an impostor, police said. Jackson tried to explain to the woman that he looked "different" on TV, but she asked him not to contact her, police said."

I would love to have heard him explanation of how he looked "different" on TV. He looks heavier in football pads?
