Tom Brady is back, and while that news caused some confusion and dismay for fans and opposing teams, it also provided Twitter NFL with some exceptionally humorous content.
And sure enough, despite this era corporate Twitter accounts are “relevant” or whatever is just a transparent marketing ploy aimed at the meme sensitivities of the social media generation. , the official group accounts are still really really funny sometimes. Brady’s nearing retirement after six weeks at home was one of those times.
NFL teams started joking around when Brady initially announced his retirement after Adam Schefter leaked the news in early February, and their PR department is now hard at work getting those back on track. The best QB ever did leaving the tournament and leaving the field for the evening was reason to celebrate for pretty much every other team in the league, but they’ll have to choose another time to celebrate because Brady wants to score a win. .
The Indianapolis Colts may have jumped in on their own, as they posted a clip of a SpongeBepisode ob has an epilogue – which they posted this weekend after Brady’s comeback – that reflects a real-life sequence of events.
The New York Jets account simply tweeted, “this is better than real” on February 1st. We all thought so! Obituaries were written, tributes made, Instagram stories posted. But one homely “Guess not” from this weekend pretty much sums it up.
Carolina Panthers also find relativity in a SpongeBob gif – that saccades may feel all too familiar to the NFC South teams and fans following Brady’s decision to return.
The Los Angeles Chargers tweeted a photo of a man in a jacket and sunglasses with no context as TB12 announced his retirement. For those unfamiliar with the Internet, that might not mean much, but others were quick to include the original meme in replies, in which the man is stopping by an enemy’s funeral to sure he’s dead.
I’m not sure how the funeral from the original photo went, but Brady was getting up and out of the casket, to the chagrin of the Chargers, who I assumed hadn’t been thoroughly examined.
This retirement reversal will provide us with content for years to come. It will be a fun day on Twitter when Brady says he’s retiring.
