Le’Veon Bell sends cryptic tweet seconds after the Steelers tie

New, comments

At least we can be sure he was watching the game

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers disappointing tie with the Cleveland Browns has many fans confused about how they should be feeling after witnessing the first tie the NFL has seen on opening day since 1971, but they are not the only ones.

While little has been heard from absentee running back Le’Veon Bell on social media in the last week or so, beyond some posts about the sadly deceased Mac Miller, the Steelers’ star runner was back to his cryptic best seconds after the find whistle of Pittsburgh’s game against the Browns.

Since I have no idea what this emoji means, I had to turn to google for an answer and I am reliably informed by the internet, as per Emojipedia.org:

“A smiley face shown wearing a monocle. May be used to describe a fancy situation.”

So that clarifies everything then!

Perhaps he was referring to James Conner’s impressive debut as a starter, one that netted him 135 yards and 2 touchdowns along with 5 receptions for 57 yards. That certainly is a fancy stat line.

The obvious initial conclusion was something more sinister, but Bell was quick to deflect that as usual.

To be fair to Bell, considering he was out at a club until after 4.30am the night before this Browns match up, he is to be commended for waking up early enough to catch the game.
