Nowadays, sports competition is not just left for the field of play.
Often times, the people in charge of a respective team’s social media account gets in on the action, with the occasional Twitter war breaking out between squads.
One such case may happen right here in the Valley, as a seemingly innocuous tweet sent out by the Phoenix Suns was responded to by the team’s Opening Night opponent, the Portland Trail Blazers.
Wrote the Suns:
In ONE word, describe how you'll feel tomorrow when Suns basketball is back. #IgniteTheFuture
