🏈🍃 Le’Veon Bell’s Pre-Game Ritual: Blazing Up for Touchdowns?
Former NFL star Le’Veon Bell drops the mic, revealing he puffed the magic dragon 🐉 before games. Claims some of his best games were when he was high as a kite. Bell’s confession gives us a peek into the past where both the law and NFL were no joke about marijuana use. 🚬🏈💨
In a stoner’s version of “coffee before work,” former NFL running back Le’Veon Bell has spilled the beans about his unique pre-game warm-up: sparking up some good old Mary Jane before rushing onto the field. Talk about being on a high… literally!
Bell casually let this nugget slip during a recent chat on the “Steel Here” podcast, where he stated, “When I was playing football, I smoked, bro. Even before the games, I’d smoke and I’d go out there and run for 150, two [touchdowns].” 🗣️🎙️ Is it possible that cannabis was his secret “spinach” à la Popeye? 🍃💪
Remember, this was a time when the NFL and the law were like the big, scary teacher with the ruler – quite strict about marijuana use. This unorthodox approach to game prep got Bell in hot water more than once. In 2014, he was nabbed for marijuana possession in the suburbs of Pittsburgh and later placed on probation. He even reportedly missed several NFL drug tests and was often pulled off the practice field for urine tests.
Despite these hurdles, or maybe because of his ‘high’ spirits, Bell had a successful NFL career, even earning the prestigious first-team All-Pro title twice during his five-year stint with the Steelers. He later played for the Jets, Chiefs, Ravens, and Buccaneers. As of now, he hasn’t officially retired, but considering he didn’t play in 2022, it’s safe to assume his football playing days might be behind him.
But let’s not let the haze cloud our judgement. Yes, Bell had an impressive career, but did his smoking habits contribute to his success or merely add to the controversy? What do you think about the NFL’s previous stance on marijuana use? Has it changed too much, or not enough? 🤔
More importantly, what kind of message does Bell’s confession send to young aspiring athletes? Is it an edgy ‘bad-boy’ swagger or an ill-advised example to impressionable youngsters? 🧒🏈💨 And, we’re curious… Would you perform better at your job if you smoked a blunt before starting?
Remember, this isn’t advice or an endorsement. It’s a perspective, a trip down the memory lane of an NFL player’s career. We ain’t promoting anything here, folks. So, always abide by the laws and rules that govern your profession. Just like any good news source, Turnt Up News isn’t advocating illegal activities or marijuana use before professional sports (or any work for that matter).
But… do you think Bell’s high-achieving career was down to his, well, high state? Or was his success just a result of raw talent and hard work, with the pre-game puff merely a controversial quirk? And how should the NFL handle this kind of confession from a former player? Your move, internet. 💭🌍🔥
