There are some things in this life that are just meant to go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Ham and eggs. Biscuits and gravy. Chicken and dumplings. Come to think of it, most of them are food related.
And then, there are the Twitter feeds of Darren Rovell and Richard Deitsch. They have a magnetic attraction to one another and every now and then the gravitational forces of the universe pull them together to meet... to fight on Twitter over completely random topics. Seriously, a picture of a phone charger once launched these two into gladiator-like combat. A phone charger! That takes some kind of commitment to a greater cause.
We had feared that once Darren Rovell moved from CNBC to ESPN that his Hundred Years Twitter War with Richard Deitsch would come to a halt what with the network's social media policy frowning on that sort of thing. Thankfully, for popcorn enthusiasts everywhere, the battle has continued to move forward because nobody really follows that anyways.
The fifth chapter in this storied rivalry emerged from what else, the weather in Sochi, Russia and a classic "Empty Crowd Shot" from Rovell. Deitsch launched the opening salvo, and the rest as they say, is history.
Deitsch vs Rovell. Rovell vs Deitsch. Get your popcorn ready, it's a Winter Olympics Twitter War!no comments
