Ahhhh, thank you Twitter.
Thank you for providing the Seahawks and 49ers the opportunity to talk a little smack before the biggest showdown since Ali-Frazier. The bland commentary from Wednesday’s media session is one reason why newspaper circulation has been steadily declining for 30 years.
Dim-witted tweets from 49ers RB Anthony Dixon are why sports fanatics peruse Twitter.
Tweeted Dixon Wednesday (before later deleting):
“Extra weight on the racks all week getting less sleep for these She-Hawks I love hostile environments Imma feel right at home..”
Oh snap. The “She-hawks.” See what he did there?
Seattle LB K.J. Wright, who played with Dixon at Mississippi State, wasn’t going to let that stand. In a tweet Wednesday that was also later deleted, he said:
“@Boob24Dixon lol the She Hawks!! I’ll be sure to relay the message to the fellas. It’s gonna be a long night for you and the forty whiners.”
Okay, so neither Wright or Dixon did an especially impressive job of manipulating the opposing team’s name into a jab. But still, it’s the effort that counts.
Is it Sunday night yet?
