Ben Roethlisberger said earlier this year that he wasn’t going to shave his beard until he was able to throw "a legit NFL pass" to one of his teammates.
So, when he shared a video on Twitter on Monday showing some of his throws to JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner and Ryan Switzer, followed by a shot of his beard getting trimmed at a barber shop, Steelers fans had reason to celebrate.
Governor Tom Wolf wasn’t as pleased to see Roethlisberger getting his beard trimmed, though.
Roethlisberger was at Norman’s Cut N Edge Barbershop in Sewickley. Allegheny County is in the “yellow phase” of lifting restrictions that were set in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Under the yellow phase, retail stores are allowed to reopen, but places like barbershops and salons are not yet permitted to reopen.
