Former New York Giants placekicker Lawrence Tynes, part of Giants teams that defeated the New England Patriots twice in the Super Bowl, couldn't resist taking some shots at New England Sunday night after their 45-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game.
It started with this:
The Pats have learned to celebrate the hell out of those AFC Championships because the know what comes 2 weeks later. #0-2inGlendale— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) January 19, 2015
Twitter being Twitter, Tynes got a reaction from New England fans and continued with his jabs. Here are a couple of them:
The facts are the facts. I sense the 10 year frustration in these tweets. Enjoy the AFC ring ceremony. They should have the process down— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) January 19, 2015
I'm glad I gave all of you something to do this evening. Research,memes,pictures,stats, grammar, etc. You will wake up better tomorrow— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) January 19, 2015
Great news @espn wrote a story on my tweet. Pretty good for a no name, couch sitting, washed up kicker. I think I am famous now. Yessssssss— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) January 19, 2015
Technically, of course, the Patriots lost to the Giants once in Glendale and once in Indianapolis. Details, details.
Whether you think Tynes shot was awesome or classless I know you want to weigh in. So, the floor is yours.
