Ben Roethlisberger is gearing up to take on the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV Sunday by getting his drink on. Earlier this week, the quarterback was spotted downing some drinks in Texas, but according to reports, he is watching his diet when it comes to mixers for his rum!

A video posted on TMZ shows Big Ben at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar in Fort Worth, Texas where he reportedly sang his heart out 11:00 p.m. until 1:15 a.m. the next morning.

The story says Ben ordered drinks for the whole bar, raking up a $800 tab and bar-goers told TMZ he was "nice, fun and took care of everyone."

In the clip on TMZ, Ben sang along to the Billy Joel mega hit "Piano Man" with his teammates.

Ben also was drinking Diet Coke with rum to keep his calorie count in check.

Today, Ben addressed 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."
