Turns out that professional athletes are just like all of us: On Sundays in fall they too enjoy posting on the couch and watching the NFL all day.
Most of the insight of the day came from the Detroit Lions’ thrilling comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys, showing tweets of excitement from Michigan natives, tweets of awe for Calvin “Megatron” Johnson and tweets of disappointment from Cowboys fans.
Here’s what the pros had to tweet about while watching that game, as well as many others around the NFL.
@blakegriffin “Big shout out to football season for making it okay to not get off my couch all weekend.”
