So long as the internet exists, mockery will occur, even in the angriest of times during the sports calendar.

Such was the case in Pittsburgh when Twitter became a source of comic relief for Steelers fans enraged by Le’Veon Bell’s holdout.

Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster got the fun going by posting this “Where’s Le’Waldo” photo.

The guys at Benstonium used the Colin Kaepernick Nike ad as a launching point for this effort.

That was after posting this one earlier in the week.

ESPN has a beautiful sense of sarcasm.

Some fantasy owners have blurred the line between “fantasy” and reality, as Barstool discovered.

That includes comedian David Spade.

This may not be precisely true, but that nighttime practice scene in the dark from “Remember the Titans” leaps to mind.

And, lastly, I’ll be campaigning for Dave Kaplan of WTAE to win the local News Emmy for 2018 after finding this gem of an interview.

What was I doing bothering to interview Maurkice Pouncey when I could’ve been looking for that lady in the Strip District?! I was robbing myself and you, the readers. That one is on me. I feel shame.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
