Who Do You Think Won the Braves/Red Sox Super Bowl Twitter Show Down?

Funny and Happy

Super Bowl LI between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots doesn’t start for a few more days, but that hasn’t prevented the trash talk from getting underway.

Indeed, the official Twitter accounts of the Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox have been passive aggressively poking one another for a while now. And it all started with this relatively innocuous tweet:

Oh wow, how nice.

The Braves are extending a friendly hand. That’ll likely close the book on any differences … nope.


Instead of returning the favor with a friendly GIF of their own, the Red Sox handed back baseball’s version of you got served:

Playing coy, the Braves responded subtly, but effectively:

And so began the back and forth ….


First, the Red Sox:

Then, the Braves:

Back to the Red Sox:

And again the Braves:


Then some random dude:

And finally, the Braves:

Who won? The Braves? The Red Sox? Everyone? And who’ll win this Sunday? Also, what’s the record for consecutive questions at the end of an article? Happy Friday!
