The Seahawks Tweeted and Deleted a Terrible MLK Day Tweet

The Seahawks social media people are probably still on a little bit of a high after last night’s improbable comeback that earned the team a trip to the Super Bowl. That’s to be expected. And maybe the team should have given their social media team Martin Luther King Day off, because they sent out that tweet above, essentially comparing their football win to the centuries-long fight against societal racism. Not the best plan. They deleted the tweet quickly (but nothing dies on the internet) and issued an apology:

Hindsight is 20/20, and in hindsight posting a pic of your QB looking like he came right out of the “American Sniper” trailer while equating your struggle to beat the Green Bay Packers to anything of actual historical merit is not a great idea.

And Now, “If This Was Philly”

SOME DISGUSTING HUMAN BEINGS IN SEATTLE, WHERE IT ALWAYS RAINS AND TOO MANY PEOPLE LOVE MICROSOFT, COMMITTED THE DEPLORABLE AND REPREHENSIBLE ACT OF THROWING POPCORN – DANGEROUS KERNELS, POPPED! – AT NAVORRO BOWMAN AS HE WAS BEING CARTED OFF THE FIELD WITH A LIFE THREATENING KNEE INJURY– AN APPARENT TORN ACL. BESIDES BEING IN EXTREMELY POOR TASTE, WHO KNOWS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED HAD A PIECE OF JAGGED, SHARP AND POPPED CORN LANDED A DIRECT HIT. THIS IS ANOTHER CLOUD OVER SPORTS IN SEATTLE.

THIS REMINDS ME OF THE ONE TIME I FLEW OVER THE GREATER SEATTLE AREA ON AN APPROACH INTO VANCOUVER AND WITNESSED THE REGION’S INHABITANTS FILLING THEIR SUPER SOAKERS WITH RAIN WATER, BECAUSE, LIKE I SAID, IT ALWAYS RAINS SO MUCH IN THIS MISERABLE CITY, AND SQUIRTING CARS ON A FOUR-LANE HIGHWAY. AND I ONCE DATED A GIRL WHOSE BROTHER LIVED IN SEATTLE, WHERE GREY’S ANATOMY AND ELLEN POMPEO’S VAGINA ARE CONSIDERED “HIGH CULTURE.” HE LIKED GRUNGE ROCK AND COFFEE, AND I DETEST HIM FOR THAT.

There, did I do that right?

Can the Phillies Bring Back Cliff Lee?

Lee se
