For any would-be dodgeball opponents of James Harrison, I have but one piece of advice that might serve you and the head attached to your body well.


Kissing Suzy Kolber reports the Steelers' star linebacker is devoting some time to another athletic adventure—the same one White Goodman played. 

Yes, the man who can't seem to get out of the way of a Roger Goodell fine is going to do his best to dodge, dip, duck, dive and dodge balls flying all around him. 

It seems the 34-year-old tweeted this marvel to fans on Thursday:

Being that there are currently no NFL games being played that I am aware of, the mind races to decode this brain-teaser. 

A little while later, Harrison tweeted out a link to this Facebook page:

Yes, it seems the man who has been fined several times for hard hits is taking his head-hunting ways to the fine sport of dodgeball. 

There, he might finally be able to throw caution and good sense to the wind and start aiming for the noggin.  

As for news that revolves around his day job, Harrison recently stated he is unwilling to take a pay cut with the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

CBS Sports reports the linebacker is certainly willing to restructure his contract to help the team "pay him $6.57 million this season and $7.57 million in 2014."

He just doesn't want to take a pay cut. 

With that, we are fairly certain this meandering into the world of fast-flying balls and shouts of, "I hit you, man, you are out! No, you are out! C'mon, don't be like that!" is but a passing phase, a way to fill the void of another offseason. 

Still, if you happen to line up against Harrison in the near future, get low, because the man likes to aim high.
