Social Media Prevents Brotherly Love Between Saints/Eagles Fans

Saints EaglesThe New Orleans Saints final seconds victory over the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday night gave fans plenty of drama, but social media offered some of its own prior to the game.

The New Orlenas Times-Picayune and Nola.com had organized a “The Who Dat Rocky Run” for fans of both teams to show solidarity by running up the famous “Rocky” movie steps.

Eagles fans took to Twitter to express their lack of brotherly love for the idea, forcing the run to be canceled.

The game was streamed on NBC Sport Live Extra desktop and tablet platform. NBC also brought in former Saints special teams player Steve Gleason to live-tweet the game on its Sunday night football handle @@SNFonNBC.
