Le’Veon Bell Becomes First Human To Fly

Bell believes he can touch the sky.

LOOKOUT BELOW!  

Fresh from his two-game marijuana-related suspension, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell took off and blasted through three St. Louis Rams defenders on Sunday. Humanity can now credit Bell as the first person to truly take flight. The Wright Brothers have nothing on Bell's innovative use of a tucked football as a human wing.

Suspended in mid-air, a majestic Bell looks like a stunt double in an Ang Lee movie . Frozen in time in the above photo, one can imagine Bell whipping his right left around to roundhouse kick Rams safety Rodney McLeod Jr like a true action superstar. 

Except he didn't actually do anything of that. 

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his knee shortly after Bell's gravity-defying move. So for at least the next four to six weeks, Bell will have to run harder and fly higher to keep the Steelers' season afloat.
