Steelers Celebrate AFC North Title With Harlem Globetrotters

Little light, fun reading for you on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ spring break week before things get serious again. After capturing the AFC North title with a nail-biting win over the Baltimore Ravens, four Steelers celebrated by taking in, and taking part, a Harlem Globetrotters game.

The Globetrotters Twitter account posted a clip on Wednesday. Four Steelers took to the court: B.J. Finney, Alejandro Villanueva, Ladarius Green, and Le’Veon Bell.

A couple of stray observations.

– The Bell “hamstring injury” was cute but never, ever, EVER joke about that again. Not now, L-Bell. Steelers’ Nation needs you.

– Villanueva has some underrated dance moves. And I bet Mike Munchak appreciates his hand fighting in pass protection on the basketball court, too. No quit in this guy.

– By this point, we know Ladarius Green is working his way back from his concussion but it’s good to see him out there as opposed to being placed in a bubble under John Norwig’s watchful eye.

B.J. Finney just looks like a swell guy. A good ‘ol Kansas boy.

– It’s become a common sight to see this team, clusters of it at least, hang out away from the football field. It’s probably a tired cliche to point out, look how tight-knit they are, but still it’s pretty cool. And it’s not just one positional group, just the veterans, or just the All-Stars.

Here’s it’s three different groups with household names (Bell) and guys the common NFL fan doesn’t have a clue about (Finney). We’ve seen the offensive line and running backs hang out at WWE events. Again it doesn’t mean much but it means something.

And that’s, well, something.
