Earlier today, Tampa Bay Rays legend Evan Longoria tweeted at Alex Morgan. It was a simple comment saying “ESPN spot is funny.” It was a nice gesture, especially considering the fact that the SportsCenter ad featuring Morgan, USA teammate Hope Solo and the Miami Dolphin was far from the upper echelon of the This is SportsCenter ad campaign. Morgan responded with a tweet congratulating Longoria on making the playoffs.
Well, I’m here to say, I see you Evan Longoria. I know what you’re up to. You tried the same thing back in July. It probably hurts that Morgan threw out the first pitch at a Royals game, while you were completing an epic comeback to make the playoffs. Is there any correlation between Longoria going into beastmode starting the same night Morgan spurned he and the Rays for Kansas City? I can’t say for sure, but I do know what Longoria is doing. The old secret courtship Twitter pal act. It’s the oldest trick in the book.
