Long trolls Austin on Twitter, gives away free tickets to Rams fans
JUN 11, 2014 10:00p ET
Chris Long's Twitter account is one of the best in the business. And all that knowledge the Rams' defensive end dishes out in 140 characters or less comes free of charge.
You are welcome, America.
Tavon Austin, however, believes that everything in life comes with a price. On Wednesday evening he tweeted out, "Remember nothing is free in life!!!" Notice three exclamation marks? That's enthusiasm!
Long, as is usually the case, couldn't skip an opportunity to poke a little fun at his teammate, even getting Rams fans in on the action.
And off the tweet went.
Getting close to that 750. Wow. If it gets to 1000 ill randomly select two lucky fans who'll get two tickets each to our home opener.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 11, 2014
750 came+went. 2 FREE tickets out the door. 2 more @ 1000. Who said nothing in life is free??? if you know who did, be sure to @ him! Pshh— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 11, 2014
We hit a 1000!!! Later tonight I'll pick 2 lucky fans to split the 4 tickets for the home opener equally.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 11, 2014
If it hits 2k by the time I pick, two more fans get two tix each. That's 8 total going to 4 tweeters. Remember: FREE EXISTS @Tayaustin01— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 11, 2014
Austin clearly was enjoying the contest, even if it was all done to prove him wrong.
Everybody retweet my last retweet so Chris Long has to kick them tickets out— الله أكبر (@Thekingback_) June 11, 2014
But, as it turns out, maybe the wideout wasn't wrong after all.
To be clear, we are talking tickets to the game. You gotta find a way here if you're outta town.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 11, 2014
The tweet didn't reach 2,000 retweets, but it did get three Rams fans a chance to watch the season opener free of charge.
It's selection time bc I'm tired and need to rest up for bonnaroo. We didn't hit 2k but we hit 1.5k. I'll add another name to the orig 2.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) June 12, 2014
Well played, Mr. Long. Well played. Now go enjoy Bonnaroo.
