Ben Roethlisberger -- BOOZING at Texas Piano Bar

2/3/2011 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger is paying extra special attention to his diet this week -- because when he was pounding drinks at a Texas bar Tuesday night ... he wanted his rum mixed with DIET COKE.

Ben Roethlisberger Piano Bar
TMZ has obtained FOOTAGE of the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback hanging out at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar in Fort Worth Texas ... where he sang his face off from 11:00 PM until 1:15 AM the next morning.

Sources inside the bar tell us Big Ben arrived with two massive teammates -- and bought several rounds of drinks for himself AND the entire bar.

We're told Ben racked up an $800 tab -- and tipped an additional $200.  People inside the bar tell us Ben was "nice, fun and took care of everyone."

In the clip, Ben can be seen singing along to the Billy Joel classic "Piano Man" while his teammates joined in on the fun.

So, we gotta ask ...

UPDATE: This morning, Ben told reporters about his big night out ... saying, "It was a superstition and tradition on Tuesday night. I take the linemen out to dinner. We went out for barbecue and then we wanted to hear some live music. We just had an enjoyable night."

Hey Ben!

Good Luck on Sunday! Personally, I'm a Bears fan but since your getting a lot of ridiculous trashing around here; I'll be cheering for you. FYI - whoever took this picture and turned it into this stupid circus should be punched in the nose.

I enjoy a great game...the Packers and the Steelers will steal the thunder anyone has,they will bring to the field the finest example of Americans playing their game! I think both teams should have a blast even after the game

So the guy went out with the boys and had a few drinks. Big deal. So what would all you holyer than thou *******s out there have him do?Become a cloistered monk because two oppertunistic bimbos accusded him of something that he has never been convicted of in a court of law. God help the poor bastard that any of you ever serve on his jury. you will havehim sentencsd before you ever hear any evidence.

Lets see Ben is over 21 right? He doesn't have to ask his mom if he can go out to dinner and have some after dinner drinks? Come on give the guy a break. He is allowed to take out friends or his fellow team mates. Well let me see according to what I have read here he should have stayed in his motel room and had dinner brought in and maybe they could have had one of you all up and cut his meat for him and fed him his potatoes. What a joke all you people want to do is get something started. Did he previous screw up? WELL YES. HE IS HUMAN.

BIG EFFIN DEAL!! He's a grown boy and knows the rules and what can happen if he breaks them now. I am sure his life will be OK whether TMZ is watching him or not.

He was with the entire offensive line and was back in before curfew. I figured sites like this embellished but still. At least pick something that cannot be verfied. lol

TMZ...Get a life and report on something relevant for once. As far as we know, Ben did nothing wrong. It seems that he made it back way before curfew, which was at 1 a.m. which already makes your story irrelevant. He has the right to do what he wants as long as he stays within the law. I doubt this will affect Ben and the Steelers at all. So go back to following Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, and all the other celebrities who want to be followed and leave Ben alone! GO STEELERS!!
