The Detroit Tigers produced a soccer scoreboard against the Texas Rangers, so it was only natural for them to bring the Cowboys to their trolling.
When you win a baseball game by double digits, you are entitled to have a little fun on social media.
That’s what the Detroit Tigers did after demolishing the Texas Rangers 14-0 on Monday.
Miguel Cabrera was the star performer with five RBIs, but the Tigers’ social media team were the big winners after the game with perfect focus for that score.
The soccer scoreboard inspired some top-notch banter between Detroit and the state of Texas.
The Tigers attacked the Cowboys on behalf of the Lions
“And the Lions take a 14-0 lead over the Cowboys!” the Tigers tweeted with a picture of the Tigers-Rangers score.
His follow-up was even better: “Now is a good time to remind you that the Cowboys committed pass interference in the 2015 NFC Wild Card game and the umpires missed that call.”
Don’t you remember that play? The fans in Detroit definitely do.
In the fourth quarter of the 2015 NFC Wild Card, the Lions had crossed the midfield with a 20-17 lead. On the third time, the umpires threw a flag for pass interference, which would have extended Detroit’s march. However, the umpires grouped together and overruled the penalty, resulting in a fourth down for the Lions.
Detroit ended up taking off and the Dallas Cowboys scored a touchdown in the next series. The Lions were unable to respond and lost the game 24-20.
Detroit has returned to the NFL playoffs only once since then, and it also fell in the wild-card round in 2016.
The Tigers are on a four-game winning streak with a swept series over the Minnesota Twins and Monday’s big win over the Rangers. They are 44-51 and 13.5 games in the AL Central, so you better have fun trolling when the opportunity arises.
The series with Texas will continue Tuesday in Detroit.
