As I watch Odell Beckham get hundreds/thousands of favs and retweets every time he tweets ANYTHING, it makes me happy and sad.  Happy that my favorite NFL player has developed a huge following on social media.  And sad because I will never have that type of love from the social media masses despite basically living my entire life on Twitter these days.  So I did a little experiment.  I waited until ODB tweeted something out and then copied/pasted his tweet as my own.  The results are above.  Almost 1400 retweets and 1400 favs for Beckham against my 1 retweet and 5 favs.  Odell just took me to Pound Town.

But in the words of everybody’s favorite mascot head wearer (Lee Corso), “NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND!”.  As of the writing of this blog, Odell Beckham has 404,000 followers (Twitter lists it as 404K to estimate because that is A LOT OF GOD DAMN PEOPLE.  I am jealous of everyone that has a K in their follower count).  I have 3,060 followers (and I love literally each and every one of them.  Especially the bots and Twitter Instagram hoes that just look for follow backs).  So by my math:

1 in every 290 of ODB’s followers retweeted his tweet, while 1 in every 295 of his followers favorited his tweet.

1 in every 3,060 of my followers retweeted my tweet, while 1 in every 612 of my followers favorited my tweet.

Looks like I lost again….

But wait!!!

Odell Beckham tweeted out his tweet 39 seconds before I did.  So I still have time to make up the difference.

 

Who Tweeted It Better Verdict: Too close to call

I think everyone across the country was confused as hell when Morgan Burnett slid after what appeared what could have been a game-clinching interception.  I thought “well, I guess there was a full crew of Seahawks ready to rip the ball out of Burnett’s hands, so he slid”.  But that was apparently NOT the case.  Usually it’s a defensive back taking the ball out of the endzone and going down at the two yard-line like a God damn knucklehead.  So Burnett’s heart was in the right place, unfortunately his body wasn’t.

Sure Burnett sliding is only reason number 348,291 why the Packers lost that game.  McCarthy got conservative, they acted like there was no chance in hell a team would fake a field goal when it would be the spark they would need, and the Packers took the ball out of their best players’ hands (Rodgers and Lacy).  But look on the bright side Packers fans.  Actually there is no bright side.  That was an absolutely brutal way to lose.  Maybe your coach will grow a spine by next season.  But by that point, Odell Beckham Jr. will fully form into the evolutionary Jerry Rice, turning the other 31 NFL team to ash along the way.  But at least the Packers are fun to play with in Madden.  Chin up, cheeseheads!

 

Well that was a lovely journey down memory lane, huh?  ODB is so good, he can make you forget how sick you are of hearing that song for the last three years.  But seriously, those were the highlights of his rookie season after he missed training camp and 4 games with a hamstring injury. What is he going to do with a year of NFL experience under his belt and improved chemistry with Eli/Ben McAdoo?  I guess the question I am getting at is “Can Odell Beckham Jr. break a million yards receiving next year”?  And the answer just may be “definitely, without a doubt, yes”.

In case you live under a rock, and that rock blocks all cellular/WiFi signals, Odell Beckham Jr. made the 2nd best catch in NFL (and oddly enough New York Giants) history.  People will forget who won a Week 12 game between the Giants and the Cowboys.  But no one will ever forget that catch.  So in my mind, the Giants won the game.  Better luck next time, Cowgirls.

Anyway, Twitter and reddit did what they usually do, create funny content.  Here are the 13 (that’s his number and everything!) best Odell Beckham tweets/Photoshops that I saw last night:
