Cleveland's newest superstar crossed what local fans consider to be enemy lines when he tweeted "Let's go Steelers let's go" on his Twitter account after Pittsburgh's 38-28 victory against San Diego Sunday night.
"I admit it," O'Neal said Monday. "I'm a bandwagon football fan."
O'Neal developed a relationship with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger over the summer during the taping of his "Shaq Vs." television show.
"I have a special relationship with Big Ben, a special relationship with T.O. and a special relationship with a couple Cleveland Browns players," O'Neal said. "I'm not really a football fan."
