A vicious stiff-arm from Vance McDonald has turned into something that so uniquely 2018: A Twitter beef between two men, both named Chris Conte.
The one who plays on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was stiff-armed into oblivion by McDonald on Monday night (you can see the play here). While maintaining a sense of humor, another Chris Conte, who works as a reporter in Nashville, made it known that he was being mistakenly taunted.
That should have been the end of it. But there’s more.
Apparently not appreciating the actions of his namesake, Chris Conte the football player blocked the reporter on Twitter. The reporter got a pretty good jab in.

There you have it. If there are any other Chris Conte’s out there, watch what you say around the football player. His sense of humor seems to rival his tackling skills.
