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."

Actually Ben and the rest of the Steelers left the bar befor 12:30 am and were back in the hotel before 1 am (the teams curfew) and of the "drinks pounded" Ben had only 3. Good thing this crack team at TMZ is on the case then we know we are getting all the information correct.

Stop crying YOU HATERS. No charges = No rape. No charges = opportunistic women.
I am SURE you HATERS have NO problems with Ray Lewis or Michael Vick.

I dont understand, with the past history of Bens "history" in bars I would think that would a place that he would be staying away from. Especially this week. Maybe thats why he some of his team mates tagged along. To make sure he stayed out of the mens bathroom.Dont put yourself in the position to be getting yourself caught up in the same mistakes.

Adrian Peterson refused drinks 2 weeks before The PRO BOWL last year because he wanted to win MVP. Ben is drinking a couple of days before the SUPER BOWL! Are you kidding me?! What is he doing?

In the grand scheme of things, who really cares what he did? Did he get arrested? Apparently not. Big deal! He went to a bar and boozed it up! Poor judgement? Probably. It's a free country. Let him go! Maybe he oughta do it again on Saturday night!

Well you can tell who the Jealous Losers are when you read their Stupid comments, some Brownie Losers that have never won a Super bowl, a few "Ball-some-more" Raven fans with Murdering Lewis on their team...damn I guess "killing people is ok in your book"?? and I'm sure a few Cowpies on here as well...lol OH it really sucks to have only 5 rings lol!! OH and who got coach of the year? the NE Cheaters coach, that man should have been kicked out of the NFL period..not made coach of the year. and then there's the NY Jets who has a coach that trips players during the game! lol oh and players making sexual advances to a female reporter, and DUI's..I wonder who got paid to look the other way then NY Jets..?? Oh and the Dog Killer Vick, and Farve Flashing himself to female reporters..OK people seems like you all have some issues!! and Ms. "read the bible" in his hotel room...! Remember this from the Bible: "Ye that has NO sin cast the first stone" NONE of you or your teams qualify to throw any stones..! So Shut up!! For the men on here, MOST of you men would be doing the same thing Ben did going out to a bar and having a few drinks with friends and you know I'm right!!! And the "allegations" against Ben were just that Hear say, NO Convictions! Just Bullsh*t from some underage college girls that had no business even being in a bar and drinking. Then following men around and throwing themselves on them, Seems to me she got what she wanted. Attention, Attention Attention...! I don't recall Ben having scratches on him or bruising of any kind. I can guarantee you if I or any women was truly being "raped" the guy doing the raping would not walk away without any marks. And to the women on here, you know I'm right about that as well. NO WOMEN WOULD NOT FIGHT BACK IN THAT SITUATION! Her life was not threaten, he wasn't holding a gun to her head...He HAD NO MARKS ON HIM..NO DNA ANYWHERE! So NO one was raped..! period! Now go away and shut the fu*k up..! Get back to the Game "football" geez..! The Steelers deserve to be where they are as do the Packers! Who ever wins on Sunday played the better game. Both teams are good teams. The Packers and Steelers both have an awesome fan base and are teams with a great history! Go Steelers!! Love ya Black and Gold!!

Who cares. Anyone who gets angry at other people they don't know personally for having fun out at a bar is either a hypocrite or needs to get out more. At least he's not molesting a woman at the bar (at least during the video).
