Roethlisberger Ornament: Big as Wii?

Ben Roethlisberger Hallmark Ornament If you haven’t been able to find the latest Hallmark sports ornament to hang on your Christmas tree, you’re not alone. In Pittsburgh, putting a hook on Ben Roethlisberger himself might be easier.

Dan Marino and Emmitt Smith were among the first to be issued back in the 1990s. Hallmark has continued issuing a new series of sports figures each Christmas season and each year it seems one is a little more popular than the others.

In 2005, it was Albert Pujols. This year, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got the call from the ornament-maker and football fans–especially in Pittsburgh and West Virginia–have been trying to chase them down…often unsuccessfully.
