Did Justin Bieber curse the Steelers after visiting their bible study?


Follow @SlamSports

The Bieber curse has now made its way to Steel City.

It seems the whirling dervish that is Justin Bieber and his entourage has now brought the sports curse that plagued the Spanish national soccer team, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Miami Heat, to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here’s what happened:

The Pittsburgh Steelers hold a pre-game Bible study for any players interested in growing their faith while building a stronger sense of community within the team. A lot of NFL, CFL and MLB teams do it, and it’s a cool way for the guys to build each other up. But it’s also any ultra-personal time that players use to open up to each other and reflect on God’s Word.

Now somehow, whether by divine right, or by invite only, Justin Bieber weaseled his way into the Steelers’ Bible study in New York Saturday night before their game against the New York Jets.

SIDENOTE: Can you imagine the gongshow if Timmy Tebow was still playing for the Jets, and showed up to this B-study? America would have imploded.

The Steelers lost to the traveling circus that is the New York Jets, 20-13 on Sunday, meaning that Justin will never be allowed back to a Steelers’ bible study. But look at how happy the players were that he showed up!

Maybe the club thought it was their own moral obligation to try and salvage Bieber before he was too far gone.

What kind of voodoo witchcraft did you use on the Steelers’ Justin?! When will your reign of terror on popular and successful sports franchises end?
