Calf With '7' On Its Head Named After Big Ben

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - One of the youngest Steelers fans around is a calf on a farm in Cambria County. At least, that's what it looks like anyway.

Could the markings on its forehead be a sign of things to come?

When the Pittsburgh Steelers march down the field, all eyes are on No. 7.

The same is true of dairy cows at Vale Wood Farms in Loretto. Visit their Facebook page here.

The calf dubbed "Little Ben" was born with a "7" on his forehead. It's a fact which has not gone unnoticed by Facebook followers.

The little cow has gone viral, and that's no bull. Some fans think it's a harbinger of a seventh Super Bowl victory. And the players are "udderly" amazed.

Maurkice Pouncey: "That's not Photoshopped, is it?"

KDKA's Dave Crawley: "No, not Photoshopped."

Pouncey: "I think Ben needs to buy this."

Crawley: "Is that a sign that we're going to the Super Bowl?"

Ike Taylor: "I don't know what it is, but it's a good sign."

Let's just hope it's not a bum steer.

"I see the big '7' on the forehead. I've never seen a cow like that," said Brad Wing, the Steelers punter. "That could be a sign from above."

Crawley: "Telling other teams to mooove over, right?"

Wing: "Yeah, that's it. That could be the sign right there."

A sign that the Steelers are the cream of the crop?

On the other hoof...

"My college number was seven. Could be my cow," said Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt.

In any case, there's a bigger question here.

Crawley: "Is that a cow that should be made into a 'Roethlis-burger,' or should it be saved?"

Le'Veon Bell: "He should be saved. He should be saved. Straight up."
