Fail to add a hashtag denoting a tweet as comedic -- #sarcasm or #kidding -- and the world takes you too seriously.
It’s a real pain for those who then have to try to attach the likely meaning to the statement.
I am firmly with Merril Hoge here. It was a joke.
(Even if the Colts wanted Favre, would he actually go to Indy to play in a couple games and then head for the bench? Would it be a deal for a handful of games with a promise of being cut once Manning returns?)
Irsay probably is laughing at the reaction to this. But I don’t find it particularly funny and his followup was hardly genius: “I can't clear anything up...everything is fluid and in flux...b ready 4 anything n everything then nothing is not foe BUT FRIEND!”
The owner is an oddball on Twitter, with rambling stream-of-consciousness and constant song lyrics. (I’ve said before, if I need song lyrics, I am familiar with how to Google them.)
Irsay's Saturday tweet that Peyton Manning may not be ready for the start of the season was a big deal. I wrote over the weekend that despite all hit Twitter craziness, Irsay has always been credible on team matters via social media.
