Anyone that's followed Chris Long on Twitter long enough knows that the Eagles defensive end likes to have fun.
On Monday, however, Long's jokes about the Stanley Cup Final went over some hockey fans' heads.
While Long was tweeting about the NBA Western Conference Finals, apparently a few of his followers thought he should've been watching a different sport.
Hilarity ensued from there.
I see some ppl saying "turn on the Stanley Cup." Guys take too many breaks in hockey. Shift changes constantly. For instance, last night,, Lebron played the entire game. I'd rather watch the grinders.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) May 29, 2018
One of these days I'm gonna be strolling through Manitoba and I'm gonna randomly get jumped over an old hockey tweet that six big ass oil workers didn't realize was a joke. I'll be laid up in a free ER, full body cast and everything right back at it.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) May 29, 2018
Joel Embiid – rightfully – gets a lot of credit for his Twitter antics, but we may have just as special of a treasure in Chris Long.
