After getting dissed by the US Open Tennis Twitter account, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock responded on the Fourth of July.
This past week, the US Open Tennis Twitter account roasted 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 is when the US Open Tennis Twitter account put this particular user in their place, saying “not a sport says the person about to watch 17 games of Drew Lock at QB.”
The comment made by the US Open Tennis Twitter account went viral. Lock eventually issued a response on the Fourth of July, wishing everyone a happy holiday “but especially to the intern at the @usopen.”

In case you were wondering, yes, the Twitter account did respond to Lock with a familiar meme of the Nintendo character Mario holding a crown.
Lock is in Seattle due in part to the Russell Wilson trade. 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 multiple draft picks in exchange for Wilson.
After a promising end to his rookie campaign, Lock was unable to maintain the starting job, as evidenced by him being the backup to Teddy Bridgewater last season. Through three years, Lock completed 59.3-percent of his passes for 4,740 yards, 25 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions. He picked up an 8-3 record as the starter.
Lock is competing for the starting quarterback job alongside Geno Smith, who started in games this past season while Wilson was sidelined due to injury.
