Over the past few days, the app Pokemon Go has swept the nation and is the most downloaded app on the App Store. Similar to the Pokemon games of the past, users go out and explore a map to find Pokemon to catch. They then can use those Pokemon to battle other players. The game has clearly found its way into the NFL.
In the afternoon the Bears tweeted:
We wouldn't mind the pests outside Halas Hall, but do they have to be purple? #PokemonGO pic.twitter.com/bRIOfdaXGm— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) July 11, 2016
The Ravens, not surprisingly, took exception to the Bears' tweet and responded saying:
.@ChicagoBears Hey, purple is a great color.— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) July 11, 2016
Now, the Bears never were insulting the Ravens. The Bears were referring to the Vikings, one of the Bears' biggest rivals. Chicago wanted to make amends with Baltimore. I mean, does anyone want to piss off John Harbaugh and the Ravens?
@Ravens Yeah, for YOU... a certain team in Minnesota.— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) July 11, 2016
The Vikings saw the whole thing unfold and responded with a comeback for the ages. Whoever runs the Vikings Twitter account, they need a raise.
.@ChicagoBears Good luck catching it! pic.twitter.com/yLAKTTuHDj— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) July 11, 2016
I'll let our President sum it up.
