Texas quarterback claimed some airport advertising in Austin meant we’re still little brother, and Texas A&M football players had some fun with it.
In case you missed it over the weekend, tu quarterback Sam Ehlinger made a questionable claim on Twitter — and not an original one, at that. He posted four pictures of Texas A&M University putting up advertising in Austin Bergstrom Airport, you know, one of the bigger airports in the state. Texas A&M football players Leon O’Neal and Christian Kirk had some fun with it (tweets below).
This is so hilarious on multiple levels. For one, posting that Texas A&M is tu’s little brother and hand waving any notions we’re actually rivals in itself is ludicrous. You’ve given credence to the fact that you do care about us, guy, not the other way around. If you didn’t care you would have walked through that airport and gone about your business.
Instead, Ehlinger posted four photos of advertisements he could see while waiting for his bag. He says it shows we’re little brother. I say it shows the Aggie marketing team knows what they’re doing. What better place to put advertisements than a spot where everyone can see them?
Here is Sam’s tweet in case you missed it.
Ehlinger isn’t even close to the first person to point this out at the airport, either. Swing and a miss on originality. Current Aggie Leon O’Neal and former wide receiver Christian Kirk poked some fun at Ehlinger
Of course, many Aggies also roasted Sam on Twitter for the hilariously misguided tweet. Maybe the best comment was “Imagine you’re in the Austin airport and you see Sam Ehlinger doing a 360 taking pictures of Aggie signs.” Indeed.
