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."

Uh    

Not since he became a member of the NFL..National Felon League.
Obviously the NFL is purely about money. Doesn't matter what rule
was broken or crime was committed, only how much revenue the individual brings in.

People should let Ben have his fun. I know most of my friends would love to be at a bar having fun. Was he molesting anyone there? Of course not, but people still look for things to cry about. There are alot worse things going on in the world now, than to be worrying about Bens' partying. Go Steelers!!!

I agree with Bobby LIGHTEN UP PEOPLE! Or should I say HATERS? Leave the man alone, he's allowed to go out, and enjoy himself, you all act as if it's Saturday night, and he should be in his room tucked in bed resting up for the big game. I guess some people just aren't satisfied unless they are complaining about one thing or another! GET A LIFE HATERS! LET'S GO STEELERS!!!
