Both Peron and Jinnies are classically trained dancers with years of experience, but Jinnies said this particular set of auditions was especially rigorous.

Le’Veon Bell’s growing frustration with the Steelers spilled over to social media Thursday, weeks after singing Pittsburgh’s praises, in light of being franchise tagged for the second straight season.

“It’s so hard to be a hero in a city that paints youu [sic] out to be the villain,” the running back tweeted to his 1.49 million followers.

Bell, 26, yearns for a long-term deal with the team that drafted him in 2013. Seeking in the neighborhood of $14.5 million per season, the Pro Bowler will be eligible for free agency next year if he and the Steelers fail to reach an agreement.

The frustration seems to be more with the reaction he is getting from fans than the pace of any negotiations he is having with the team.

Rodriguez came to the Bronx following an MVP season in Texas and after a trade with Boston fell through. He agreed to move to third base, and with Jeter at short, the Yankees won a title in 2009.

The guards led the Knicks to the 1972-73 NBA title in Monroe’s first full season in New York. The Knicks haven’t won a championship since.

“I’ve choreographed for girls who danced on pro teams, I’ve danced with girls on various pro teams, so I thought: ‘Why not me? Why can’t I do this?’”

Peron then showed up for auditions, where he “danced his heart out,” he said.

“This one was about three weeks long and we had a bunch of rehearsals in between and an extensive interview process, but it was really humbling and amazing to be invited every time you came back,” he said. “High emotions, but it was worth it.”

Team captain Emily Leibert said the “intelligent” and “eloquent” men are the perfect fit to break barriers in the testosterone-laden NFL.

“They really just fit the bill to be a Los Angeles Ram cheerleader,” she said. “They are more than qualified to be ambassadors out in the community. They bring so much energy and there’s something so magnetic about their performance. You really can’t take your eyes off them.”jets_142

Are the Steelers concerned that their subsequent attempts won’t be as likely to succeed?

It’s more the fake punts when there doesn’t really seem to be any rhyme or reason for one. And Tomlin’s two-point logic remains confoundingly weird. He’s right to think the Steelers have a great offense, and blessed with Le’veon Bell and a dominant offensive line, Pittsburgh should be going for two more often than just about any other team in the league.

And over the past two years, they have. During the first three quarters of games — before most teams are willing to consider going for two — the Steelers have gone for two 15 times, converting on 10 of those tries. No other team has attempted more than five.

The weird part is that the Steelers don’t really push the envelope. They go for two once in the first half, succeed, and then stop. Pittsburgh has gone for two more than once before the fourth quarter in a game on only two occasions; it tried (and succeeded) twice against the 49ers last season, and then failed on consecutive attempts against the Cowboys earlier this season.

Are the Steelers concerned that their subsequent attempts won’t be as likely to succeed? Do they only go for it in the hopes of gaining an advantage and not want to press their luck? It’s hard to find the logic in why the Steelers would think they should go for two once but never again.

Even if the process is opaque and inconsistent, on the whole, Tomlin is more aggressive than a typical coach in a way that plays to his team’s strengths. He should stay that course on Sunday.
