Vikings QB Christian Ponder has become quite the target of social media snark with his play on the field this season. He's not reached Brandon Weeden territory, but it's at least in the same neighborhood. Perhaps part of that is Ponder's high-profile significant other, ESPN's college football reporter Samantha Ponder.
Sam Ponder has shown a deft touch in dealing with trolls and critics on social media and there is more than a fair share out there when it comes to both Ponders. Last night she turned to the very popular parody account @FauxJohnMadden after the person behind the account had a joke at the expense of Christian Ponder getting hurt in the 4th Quarter of last night's game.
@FauxJohnMadden ...says the guy using a parody account who asks the injured guys wife for career help? "I'm a lil confused by ur tactics..."— Sam Ponder (@samsteeleponder) November 8, 2013
And thus begins Sam Ponder's startling transformation into Walter White. Tread lightly, indeed.
I don't get the comeback. Is she bringing herself into the story? Did this person ask for career advice from a sideline reporter? Unless this person is a cute blonde in her 20's, what could she tell her?
I heard she was startled by a passer-by on her way to her hotel the other night, and she accidentally grabbed her spray tan bottle out her purse instead of the pepper spray.
Not the first time I've seen comments like this from her twitter account, it's really not worth the time to battle trolls online. Not worth the HP, and it's just a waste of time. No one will give a horse's butt 5 minutes later about a joke like this, but they will remember her for being a bitch.. You could easily replace Ponder with Jay Cutler in a joke like this, but you likely won't see Kristin Cavallari making comments like this. Laugh it off and take the high road. It's meant to be funny.
She will dump his ass as soon as he is release or is out of football, I say the odds are One Con-trillion to 1 she keeps him more than a year or two at the most, then latch onto another pro athlete,probably a soccer player to embarrass Chris even more
