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."

where did they go? To the strip club of course.. typical male garbage..but the fact is, as much as they get paid.. there should be a rule to STAY SOBER until after the big game...that would be the smart thing to do... with that said.. GO STEELERS.. you better not **** it up now that people know you've been spending your free time getting lap dances and getting wasted..

The only way this fat ugly pig can get any tail is by raping young college girls. Thank God I am not a Squeelers fan.

You guys are retarded. I hope you didn't pay anyone for that bogus video! That is clearly not Ben, unless he gained about 50 pounds in 2 days and shaved half his beard off. Get a grip and move on to more realistic gossip!

OMG, Ben was at a piano bar 5 days before his 3rd Super Bowl!! I hope he didn't bang any drunken whores with DTF buttons on (ooops, I mean rape any innocent young ladies) that night.

For all you folks with such a hatred for Big Ben, I think it is time for you to get off your high horse. When I was 28 years old I went to bars and enjoyed my karaoke. I would have a few drinks and leave the bar at 1:15 or there abouts. He is an adult and had an enjoyable night someplace in Dallas. Should he not be allowed to take some time away from all the media freaks and have some fun and unwind? The Super Bowl week is probably a pressure cooker if you just sit in your room and wait for it to happen. Of course, none of us know that because none of us are professional football players. I'm also certain that all the Green Bay Packer players were up in their rooms watching TMZ and would never think to have a Rum and Diet Coke or a beer this week. Grow up people! Get a life of your own.

I don't even like Ben and don't give a **** about who wins this Sunday, but as a former athlete , I gotta say, that is pretty dumb. A few drinks may not sound bad, but the dehydration effects can stay in your body for several days. It probably won't effect him Sunday but it will effect his practices this week.
