After being dissed by the US Open Tennis Twitter account, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock responded on July 4th.
Last week, the US Open Tennis Twitter account toasted new Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock. A Seahawks fan responded to a Wimbledon highlight video shared by SportsCenter’s Twitter account, saying “not a sport.” That was when the US Open Tennis Twitter account put this particular user in their place, saying “not a sport says the person is watching 17 games Drew Lock on QB.”
The comment from the US Open Tennis Twitter account went viral. Lock eventually issued a response on July 4, wishing everyone a happy holiday “but especially to the intern at @usopen.”

If you were wondering, yes, then the Twitter account responded to Lock with a familiar meme of the Nintendo character Mario holding a crown.
Lock is in Seattle in part because of the Russell Wilson deal. After spending three seasons with the Denver Broncos, Lock was traded to the Seahawks along with tight-end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris and several draft picks in exchange for Wilson.
After a promising end to his rookie campaign, Lock was unable to retain the starting job, as evidenced by the fact that he was the backup for Teddy Bridgewater last season. Over three years, Lock completed 59.3 percent of his passes in 4,740 yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He picked up an 8-3 record as a starter.
Lock is vying for the starting quarterback job alongside Geno Smith, who started in games last season while Wilson was out of the game due to an injury.
