There Are Fans…And There Are Crazy People


Most Vikings fans are familiar with Christian Ponder’s celebrity wife, Samantha.  She is a sideline reporter on ESPN and enjoys interacting with her fans on Twitter.   Every once in a while, a “fan” pushes it too far.  One case of this is a tweet that Sam Ponder received from a guy named “Mikeford and Sons”  after her husband had a poor performance in week 1 against the Detroit Lions.  Here is the tweet:

Sam Ponder Tweet

For those of you who don’t remember, Steve McNair was murdered by his mistress in 2009 in what was considered a murder/suicide.  Not only is it tasteless to bring up this absolute tragedy, but it wish it upon another person because of a game is absurd.

Samantha Ponder is a good sport and probably has to deal with messages like this on a constant basis, but hopefully  the people who tweet her will be a little less insane in the future.

    A game you watch on TV?? This chick wouldn’t have a job if it weren’t for games on TV like football. That’s why I switched from blonde white chickes to Asian chicks. . . They don’t get opinions.

    Jk. Heh heh
