    I hate the Steelers and think they will win regardless, but without the Pats or 'Skins playing, this gives me a rooting interest for at least one week.

    This definitely tops the time he twerked after scoring a touchdown.

    Did they know each other? That's really cool, not to mention the cleats actually look sick.

    It's nice he's doing Jasper Howard. In the regular season game vs Fins he honored Jose Fernandez. He makes a point of honoring an athlete from the opponent's city with his shoes every game.

    Of course the NFL makes him take them off prior to kickoff.

    That's a shame.

    Dude's got the cash to give the one finger salute to the No Fun Police 1000 times over, but I'm not one to tell others how to spend their money. Would be cool to see those in the endzone.

    He did get fined first couple of times, then the NFL threatened to have him tossed from games if he didn't change into "approved footwear", so it wasn't about the money.

    Anyone know what AB does with the cleats after wearing them? Does he keep them all? Would be great if he auctioned them off for charity after each game. Those cleats should be on display at the UConn practice facility!
