ESPN has issued an apology after airing a graphic Monday entitled “Ben Roethlisberger ‘Drink and Drunk’” ... instead of dink and dunk, football parlance for short passes.

“We have to tell you this for sure, earlier in the show we had a graphic error in the rundown,” Monday Night Countdown anchor Chris Berman said. “We apologize for the mistake."

"Not sure how it happened. It won’t happen again, we’ll be back.”

So ... given that it's Ben Roethlisberger, and we're talking about two typos in a three-word sentence, is there any real possibility this was a mere "error"?

Ben Roethlisberger has settled the lawsuit filed against him by Andrea McNulty in 2009 - the first of two incidents in which he was accused of sexual assault.

The civil lawsuit filed by McNulty, a former Lake Tahoe casino host, claiming the NFL star raped her while he was in town for a golf tournament in 2008.

Neither side will say if Andrea McNulty was paid in the settlement.

McNulty filed the suit in Washoe District Court in 2009, claiming Roethlisberger lured her into his Harrah's penthouse suite and forced her to have sex.

The suit also named a list of Harrah's employees, claiming they covered up the alleged sexual assault to protect the Pittsburgh Steelers superstar.

McNulty's lawyer, Cal Dunlap, refused to discuss the terms of the case. Roethlisberger's lawyer, David Cornwell, and his agent, also had no comment.

McNulty claimed Roethlisberger asked her to come to his suite to fix his broken television, only to force her onto the bed and rape her, the suit said.

Lawyers for Roethlisberger denied the claims, and the casino denied covering it up. McNulty was accused by some of trying to extort money from him.

The star faced similar allegations in Georgia only one year later when a second Ben Roethlisberger accuser said he sexually assaulted her after a night of drinking.

Authorities investigated the allegations, but no charges were filed.

It's still unclear why Ashley Harlan is marrying Ben Roethlisberger. But one thing is now known to all: the couple's wedding date. The couple will get hitched on July 23.

"It's just an engagement," the quarterback told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in his first interview on the topic. "I never expected it to be on the front pages of all the papers and websites. There was speculation what our invitations would look like and who is coming! It almost seemed surreal, it was like a movie or something, it was weird."

Also weird, to some? Why anyone would marry the Steelers star after multiple accusations of sexual assault.

But over 500 guests are expected to attend and Ben is serious about a no-present policy. He intends to donate any gifts to Ronald McDonald House and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
