Listen, we in the media all respect each other. ESPN. Barstool. Water Cooler Sports. We’re a brethren and so none of this is necessarily “shade” at KFC over at Barstool Sports, but holy smokes did Thor get him good yesterday.
**Also, what a wild notion that I find it newsworthy to write about a Twitter fight between an athlete and Barstool.**
Yesterday, KFC playfully tweeted a “baby” picture of Syndergaard:
🚨🚨🚨OLD AWKWARD NOAH SYNDERGAARD PICTURE ALERT🚨🚨🚨 pic.twitter.com/iVcC0puWOm

I mean, that picture really is outstanding. Buuuuuuuuut, Thor apparently wasn’t going to just let it happen, so Thor gave him a simple “Looks perfectly normal to me” response. And here’s where things got interesting…
KFC couldn’t just let the conversation die, so he replied “Hey, @NoahSyndergaard I loved your early songs from Crucifictorious” – a suggestion that the young Thor looks like Landry from Friday Night Lights.
So Thor fired back. It was a high and inside fastball, a little sweet chin music:
Says the guy w a face for radio.

***MIKE BREEN BANGGGGGGGGG***
And while Noah’s tweet was for sure complete fire, Twitter didn’t let us down either with their reactions to Thor… God damn do I love the internet!!

And tons more “RIP” and “bodybagged” replies. Gotta love it when the pros get in on the heckling and just smash “us” media guys.
