Stefon Diggs takes a picture in Boston on Twitter
In the 80s and 90s, it was difficult to interact with famous professional athletes outside of game days. You’ve seen them on TV doing interviews and maybe one of them had their own local TV or radio show.
However, over the past 10+ years, we have had glimpses of athletes off the field, field or ice through social media.
Platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and TikTok give them the opportunity to express themselves about the game or about life in general; it also gives us fans a chance to interact with them.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs is someone who is great fun to follow on social media, especially Twitter.
He’s not there often, but when he’s there, you usually laugh or think.
Thursday night, Diggs was commentating Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors.
Diggs took a pretty funny shot in Boston.
If you’ve lived in Western New York long enough, you know that Boston isn’t exactly the most popular city when it comes to professional sports teams. The New England Patriots and Boston Bruins are two of the most hated teams by Buffalo sports fans and Diggs’ tweet went down pretty well with Buffalonians.
I’m sure the five games against the Patriots over the past two seasons have something to do with it…
