Shaq rooting for Steelers
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."
