Sports is supposed to be fun. It's entertainment. I think sometimes we get to caught up in who won or lost or which team deserved something they didn't get. When that happens sports stops being fun and takes on entitlement. But we are so passionate as fans it's difficult to separate the game from it's intended entertainment value. Thank goodness for Captain Andrew Luck on Twitter.
I don't follow Twitter. I don't know how to Twit. Twat? Whatever, I don't know how it works is the bottom line. But there is a guy on Twitter who is capitalizing on Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's resemblance to a Civil War officer. We've all seen Luck with his beard right? He legitimately looks like a guy who just stepped off the battle field in 1864. It's great.
So prior to each Colts game and then immediately after #CaptainAndrewLuck writes short messages. The messages are penned as if they are from Civil War era Luck writing a letter to inform his family of his actions. Each Tweet starts out "Dearest Mother" and then details what the Colts are doing each week. The Tweet last night stated that the unit was heading east to New York to do battle with the Jets Men. The Tweet after the game to "Mother" stated that the line held under constant barrage.
I think that is just hilarious. Obviously it isn't Luck writing this stuff but you can just picture the Indianapolis quarterback dressed in a blue Union uniform sitting at a desk with quill and ink writing out these letters to home. I'm not a Colts fan so I generally don't care how the team does. But I do look up every week now to see what Captain Andrew Luck has to say about the teams match-up and performance in battle. It's almost enough to make me want to open my own Twitter account just to make it easier to read.
