A bakery in Jacksonville, Florida decided to give Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger seven turnovers as a parting gift.
While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tries to figure out how his stacked squad lost the AFC divisional game to the Jacksonville Jaguars, he won’t have to do it on an empty stomach.
Cinotti’s Bakery in Jacksonville decided to send Roethlisberger a parting gift of seven turnovers. The seven turnovers represent the number of times that Roethlisberger handed the ball over to the Jaguars this season. In Week 5 he turned the ball over to the Jaguars five times, and he added an interception and a fumble on Sunday.
The bakery shared some pics of the turnovers that they sent to the Steelers quarterback along with a message to Roethlisberger on Facebook.
“Dear Big Ben…… We wanted to thank you for the amazing season so far. Beating you this year not once BUT twice in the Burgh… well that was amazing! We appreciated the turnovers you gave us over our season so in return we wanted you to get a TASTE of 7 turnovers,” the Facebook post read. “So here are our very best Apple, blueberry and Cherry turnovers! Sincerely, the amazing City of Jacksonville or as you know it SACKSONVILLE”

In case you’re wondering, the Sacksonville comment refers to the fact that the Jaguars sacked Roethlisberger four times this season. Ouch. Looks like Roethlisberger just got sacked again by Jacksonville.
I’m guessing that Roethlisberger won’t want to eat any of the turnovers that the bakery sent him after that Sacksonville burn.
You can bet that Roethlisberger will be looking for revenge against the Jaguars next season and hope that they’re the ones turning it over instead. Roethlisberger said on Sunday that he would be back next season and has told his teammates that he wants to play for another three years, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The AFC championship game is on Sunday and you can bet that Roethlisberger will be rooting for the New England Patriots to beat the Jaguars.
