The year is 2017, and I still can’t believe that Twitter is still free. The reason why I say that: On Thursday, former Ohio State offensive tackle Taylor Decker went on Twitter and made a comment about headphones and getting a tattoo, a heckler on said website tweeted at Decker about trading in memorabilia for the tat a la Tattoo-gate, and Decker fired back with a comeback that we all dream about delivering.
Since there was some good, like the spot, updates on Ohio State basketball, as well as fun spot the difference puzzles last week, I, one of the managing editors at Land-Grant Holy Land, thought this story should be utilized as a solid pick-me-up heading into the new workweek.
Without further delay, the Twitter story:
The leadoff by Decker.
Thoughts on headphones while getting tattooed? I always find it a little odd but maybe I'm crazy.— Taylor Decker (@TDeck68) July 6, 2017
A question is asked about whether or not this tattoo in question is on the same shoulder that Decker just had repaired.
Not on your shoulder I hope.— Jacob Birmingham (@Jabirmingham88) July 7, 2017
Yup right on my surgically repaired shoulder that's in a sling actually https://t.co/xLnpwyY0Bq— Taylor Decker (@TDeck68) July 7, 2017
Then comes the Michigan man.
Can't take the Ohio State out of the player... apparently. Is this a trade for gold pants? Go Blue.— Tony Elias (@bomaizey) July 7, 2017
And then Decker comes in for the knockout tweet.
Well I do have plenty of gold pants from kicking their ass for 4 years. https://t.co/RaTj4K2mrI— Taylor Decker (@TDeck68) July 7, 2017
From 2012-2015, Decker was part of an undefeated team in Urban Meyer’s first season, a national championship team, and helped beat Michigan four times—getting those gold pants in the process.
After Decker’s response, more good tweets started to roll in. Here’s a couple of them:
