If there is one thing that sports teams have proved, it’s that putting together a ‘Mean Tweets’ segment should be fairly easy. One needs only to follow a game of ANY sport on Twitter to see the term “garbage” thrown around more often than it would in any actual non-trash scenario. The Cowboys did it.
