Whoever handles the Patriots' social media is probably not having a very fun Friday at work - assuming they are still employed.

To celebrate their 1 millionth follower on Thursday, the Patriots asked people to retweet an image of a digital jersey to receive a customized version with their Twitter handle on the back.


The account then tweeted out a thank you to an account with an extremely racist username, complete with an accompanying jersey emblazoned with the slur.

They have since deleted the offensive tweet and apologized for the "filtering" error.

NY Jets wide receiver Eric Decker asked fans to tweet their #jetsdiehardfan stories. What he got was a look inside the minds of exasperated fans of the struggling team. Here are some of the best.

Hat tip to CBS Sports.

A visibly frustrated Peyton Manning implored the crowd to quiet down during a play late in the game last night, and could be seen mouthing "shut up" after one of his offensive linemen got flagged for a false start. In the post-game press conference, Manning clarified that it wasn't the fans who were getting on his nerves, it was the scoreboard operator who was playing graphics encouraging fans to get up, get loud, and dance.

Getting up, getting loud, and dancing are all well and good, just save it for when the home team's on defense!

"Shut up!!!"

It's understandable that KOMO 4 news in Seattle might be a bit nostalgic for the era of the Supersonics, but let's at least try to keep it within the same sport.
