Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck took a 6th grader to school this week and he took questions from students, many of whom were wearing his jersey. “Do you think girls should be allowed to play in the NFL?” one girl asked. “Girls can play in the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger plays for the Steelers, right?” Hasselbeck said, in a playful flashback to Seattle’s Super Bowl loss three seasons ago.
“Joking. Totally joking. That was a joke,” Hasselbeck said, chuckling.
