Both were accomplished, but he was serious about the Dairy Queen thing, shooting the company a private message on Twitter, and it has nothing to do with delicious Dilly Bars. He used to eat at DQ all the time as a kid. “I get the Reese’s Blizzard and I add cookie dough,” he told ESPN.
By Monday, his love for DQ had mushroomed into a possible endorsement deal. “We’re still in the midst of it right now, but they are obviously interested after what happened with the buzz surrounding it,” Bell said. “I’m excited about it. I love Dairy Queen. . . . It’s still in the negotiation stage right now.”
As for now, he’s focused on football and the Steelers’ opener Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
“Football is more than just a sport. There’s a business behind it,” Bell told ESPN. “There are no hard feelings. Everyone’s happy. . . . Maybe next year something happens. But I’m worried about this year.”
Furniture might be worth more, but working at DQ is definitely a sweeter deal.
