Most people like to wake up to a big breakfast and some gifts on their birthday morning. Steve Smith Sr. is not one of those people.
The Baltimore Ravens' star wide receiver waited until the morning of his 36th birthday—5:23 a.m. to be exact—to serve up a dish of cold revenge to a Twitter follower. Although there's no telling how long Smith sat on this tweet calling him old and saying his bones are fragile, he was ready to ring in his 36th year with the ultimate payback.
Smith is the wrong one to test. And the veteran earned that payback, tallying 79 receptions for 1,065 yards and six touchdowns with the Ravens last season, remaining a top-20 wideout in the NFL.
Earlier this year, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins waited five years to get back at a follower on Twitter. The particular follower guaranteed that Cousins would be arrested in five years. Not only was Cousins not arrested, but he enjoyed his first selection to the All-Star Game this year.
Will stashing tweets for revenge be a new thing in sports now?
