The Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles Twitter accounts poked fun at the Toronto Blue Jays while the team searches for answers after their worst start in franchise history.
Eric Thames and the Brewers rolled into Toronto for a two-game mini-series earlier this week setting the stage for the Blue Jays first Interleague Home Opener. The Jays scuffled versus the Brew Crew losing two close-knit affairs 4-3 and 2-0.
The mini-sweep at the hands of the Brewers prompted their team Twitter feed to send the Blue Jays an apologetic pun-filled tweet for ruining the team’s opening week festivities.
The light-hearted tweet was actually well thought and entertaining however who puts vegetables on a poutine. What is this travesty, looks more like a salad than a plate of Canadian goodness.
Meanwhile the Orioles decided to chime in on the first round of the NHL playoffs as the Washington Capitals were poised to begin their series with the Toronto Maple Leafs in Washington. Unfortunately for the Jays and Leafs both teams came out on the short end of the sitck Thursday evening.
The tweet featured Buck Showalter and company in Capitals gear encouraging both the Capitals and Orioles to beat both Toronto squads.
Even Adam Jones who is never short on words jumped on the Capitals bandwagon trolling his support with a Twitter video. I wonder how many players Jones can name from the Capitals roster not names Alexander Ovechkin.
We are not even 10 games into the season and it appears the respective social media teams have brought their “A” game to the chirping table. No surprise it was poutine and hockey at the forefront of the chirps hurled north of the border.
