As those that thoroughly understand all there is to know about old media are slowly but surely getting weeded out of larger organizations so that fresh blood can be brought in, I’m pretty sure the NFL league office is still using Windows ME and hasn’t heard of twitter.
So, for the time being, Reggie Bush should fly under the radar until his tweet gets talked about on ESPN later on today when they have NOTHING else to talk about or some archaic newspaper in New Orleans stumbles upon his twitter page in a week or two.
But, here’s Reggie expressing “concern” of being fined by the league because of a tweet…
All because of this tweet (which doesn’t make sense)…
“I believe we live in a world full of double standards! Why is it wrong to fight dogs but legal to hunt birds, deer, moose, fish, etc?”
I love Reggie Bush. I love that he’s been wearing apartheid diamonds the size of my knuckle since he was playing college football – unpaid? I love his swagga. In fact, he’s strangely one of my favorite pro athletes.
But, all of that said, he definitely didn’t do well on the analogy portion of his SAT. And, it’s a shame his education at USC didn’t pass along any knowledge.
For Reggie’s tweet to make sense, we would have to exclude anything about humans hunting. Moreover, there would have to be a case when some other NFL player – or person – was caught bankrolling bloody gambling fights between birds, deer, moose, and/or fish. Can you imagine – one bird fighting another bird? Snoozefest. Well, maybe a cock fight in Mexico wouldn’t be too boring. But, you get my point.
P.S. Yes, there’s a ton to fit in the 140 characters that twitter allows and people commonly get misunderstood. But, I think in this case, Reggie simply fcked up the analogy. If you go to his twitter page, he won’t really accept responsibility for making a bad analogy – yet.
Paging the league office…
