Some of the greatest stories of our time are told on Twitter. There was that one guy who live-tweeted a hockey game, the slow decline of venerated scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson into a fact dispensary, and then there was Will Hill. But one of the best stories of the night of the NFL Draft was the gentle sonning of Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar for his skepticism on Keanu Neal's NFL stock.
It started back in April.
Let's play the world famous who's last in the draft green room game. I'll say Keanu Neal.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) April 12, 2016
@MockingTheDraft love it— Keanu Neal (@Keanu_Neal) April 12, 2016
@Keanu_Neal shit— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) April 12, 2016
But while that was forgotten by some before Thursday night, Kadar didn't forget. Many Florida fans didn't forget. And neither did Neal teammate and best Florida cheerleader of all time Jake McGee.
Come at me Florida fans. I'm waiting for you. Have fun. Don't be too rude.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) April 29, 2016
Keep going Florida fans. I expected much worse.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) April 29, 2016
say sorry https://t.co/EWdR9MMPh4— Jake McGee (@JakeOvaTheWorld) April 29, 2016
@JakeOvaTheWorld Sorry Jake.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) April 29, 2016
@MockingTheDraft not to me!!! haha— Jake McGee (@JakeOvaTheWorld) April 29, 2016
Then, well, the most inevitable thing of 2016 happened.
In seriousness, everyone involved seems to have taken this in light spirits. And that's good to see, because the other story unfolding on Twitter on this draft night sure doesn't seem as ripe for innocent chuckles.
