Ortiz later offered Kevin Love some advice, so he could, maybe, one day have his own championship moment with the president.

Yo @kevinlove if you need advice on moving from Minnesota to Boston just let me know #CityOfChamps

2. The on-field turned online feud between Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman and San Francisco 49er Michael Crabtree in the run-up to the Super Bowl.

Film don’t lie… @nflnetwork @espn pull up the tape of that game and show me where this guy is the best? #fake #fake #fake

— KingCrab15 (@Michael Crabtree)

Richard Sherman breaks up a pass, intended for Michael Crabtree.

A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of a sheep.

— RSherman_25 (@Richard Sherman)

Including Sherman’s infamous post-game rant with Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship game versus the 49ers.

Even baseball player Justin Verlander jumped in on the action.

So Russell is a class act! Sherman on the other hand…. If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.
