Soooooo yeah, this was tweeted out three days ago, but I'm just seeing it now. Sorry, I'll try to do better next time. A friend of mine just retweeted it so it's now coming to my attention. I just don't follow NFC South twitter, guess that's on me. Normally I like stay current and try to not blog old stories, but I just couldn't let this one slip through the cracks.
On Monday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tweeted out a promotion about their official Buccaneers Fidget Spinners.
Nothing too noteworthy here. Just an NFL franchise trying to capitalize on one of the hottest trends going. Smart move by the Bucs.
Then the Atlanta Falcons, fresh off their 25 point blown lead in the Super Bowl thought they could bust some Buccaneers' balls asking what they're nervous about since that's one of the purposes of these spinners.
In which, the Bucs replied to with a not so subtle jab at them for what went down in early February.
I don't know who runs the Falcons twitter account, but come on bro be better. I'm not a big try to get people fired guy, but the Falcons should fire this person for incompetence.
You gotta know you're very susceptible jokes about blowing a 25 point lead in the Super Bowl. 28-3 is the new Warriors blew a 3-1 lead with the unanimous MVP. By throwing some unprovoked shade at the Bucs, you're basically just asking for it. That's just how the internet works, I didn't make the rules. As someone getting paid to be on the internet, you gotta know better. Can't be throwing 72 mph fastballs down the middle and not expect to have someone take you deep.
Have to keep a low profile. People are gonna talk shit. I'm sure you get 28-3 shit in the replies of every tweet you do. But those aren't even funny, they're just lazy and you can live with that. But you don't have to open your front door and invite them in your home to do it. Just gotta do whatever you can do to not have it brought up. Your tweet was not a good practice of that.
Quick story time: When I was 15 years old I went to a party and got so drunk that I went to the hospital. Could've died. I also happened to shit my pants.
How do you think school went for me that year?
I'll tell you, not well!
When your nickname is "party-pooper" you gotta know, even if you have a great line for some (no pun intended) shit talk that they have the ultimate trump card in "Whatever party pooper" or "Well you shit your pants". Something like that. So it was best for me to try to not do things where that would happen. It took years to stop getting made fun of for it. Sure now I'll joke about it, but it really fucking sucked at the time.
So Falcons, since your choke job brought me great joy, the least I can do is give you a solid piece of advice. People are going to make 28-3 jokes for possibly the rest of eternity. Try to not give them golden opportunities to roast you for all of the internet to see. The only thing you can do to make them stop is win a Super Bowl. I know since you're the Atlanta Falcons that is probably not going to happen anytime soon. I really am expecting a disaster 6-10 like follow up after blowing that big of a lead in record time. But for your own sake, and this is going to be extremely ironic coming from me given all the stupid stuff I've said online, just think before you hit send.
I'm sure 28-3 jokes will die at some point, but I just don't see it coming anytime soon. There's a significant chance the Falcons never recover. This may ruin them as a franchise. Also as a person who watches the Super Bowl LI comeback about 4 times a week I still cannot believe it happened. Obviously the Patriots ended up showing how great they are, but just from a time and decision stand point it is almost impossible to believe the Pats came back. The Falcons had the ball on the Pats 21 or 22 yard line after that crazy Julio catch up 8 with under 4 minutes left and ended up punting. 1000% inexcusable.
This is hilarious
