Aside from that whole “Deflategate” thing, the talk of the sports world is focused solely on next week’s Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. And it seems no athlete, team or league is immune to the chatter.
Case in point: The Boston Breakers of the NWSL decided to have a little fun with the Seattle Reign on Twitter on Wednesday about the game.
The Reign answered almost immediately because of course they did.
The Breakers obviously then had to respond with some good ol’ fashioned trash talking, complete with a supplementary meme.
Perhaps because the team’s social media department is just too afraid of ending up on Revis Island, or perhaps because it had real work to do, the Reign did not respond. However, I refuse to believe that this exchange is over and have great expectations for it over the next 10 days. Don’t let me down, guys.
See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Let me know on Twitter, @darcymaine_espn.
