NEW KENS­ING­TON, Pa. — Pittsburgh Steel­ers’ run­ning back Le’Veon Bell jok­ingly tweeted dur­ing his pre­sea­son con­tract hold­out that he might have to ap­ply for a job at Dairy Queen.

On Tues­day, Dairy Queen obliged.

Bell spent some time at the chain’s New Kens­ing­ton store — about 20 miles north­east of Pittsburgh — learn­ing how to make Bl­iz­zards and other treats.

Bell says his one-day gig was “harder than I thought it was go­ing to be” and that he doesn’t think “this job is any eas­ier than my job, and I don’t think my job is any eas­ier than their job.”

Jared Abra­ham, who coowns the store, says Dairy Queen reached out to Bell af­ter his tweet. Abra­ham says, “As ex­cited as we were to have him, he seemed just as ex­cited.”
