During last night’s thrilling contest between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, Boston native Bill Simmons took a jab at Cris Collinsworth.
The Sunday Night Football analyst was not amused, as Collinsworth came back with a vicious clapback. He would quickly delete his tweet, but thankfully, Deadspin grabbed a screenshot of it. I guess he was worried about getting arrested for murdering a man in cold blood for all of Twitter to see.
Check and mate. There is no coming back from that one. That was a masterful counterattack by Collinsworth after some real careless behavior from Simmons. Sending out snarky tweets about TV personalities is pretty much the last thing you want to do when your own TV show just got cancelled. You shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house because Cris Collinsworth will throw a goddamn boulder through it.
Unsurprisingly, the internet had a blast dancing on the grave of Simmons. Here are a few of my favorite jokes at Simmons’ expense.
