Now that the replacement refs have been sent back to their respective jobs at Foot Locker, TGIFriday’s and Applebee’s, we can breathe a sigh of relief and go back to complaining about the normal refs and how they screw someone’s team each and every week.
While there was an unparalleled outrage over the result of Sunday’s Green Bay vs. Seattle game where a “Fail Mary” was ruled a TD rather than an interception, no one was more succinct to get his point across than Packers guard TJ Lang.
Apparently TJ got himself about 90,000 new followers thanks to that Tweet, and the one he sent directly after:
I mean…98,000 retweets? That is impressive, sir. I have to give this guy props. Most athletes (cough cough LeBron cough cough) just TwitPic the food they’re eating at the restaurant you’ll never be able to afford to go to or the $300 sneakers they just designed, which will sadly not bring you the glory you’re hoping for. It’s nice to see genuine emotion rather than PR-related fluff. He wasn’t afraid to just lay it out there, and we should applaud him for that.
Oh, and by the way, the league will not be fining any players, we hear, and order has been restored in the form of Ed Hochuli’s biceps.
