BEN ROETHLISBERGER: It was very important. I made a promise to myself and my parents. I feel pretty proud of it.
Did you take any classes recently that really stuck with you?
BR: The last one I took was an anthropology course on Tibetan culture. I knew absolutely nothing about it other than that Brad Pitt did a movie on Tibet one time.... I read books and wrote some papers. It's a very interesting situation.
Where does the degree rank with your Super Bowl rings?
BR: I'm just as proud of this as I am of the Super Bowls.
