Congratulations to every single fan base in the country besides New England fans as your team is finally a Super Bowl champion! Welcome to this edition of the Twitter Reacts to Sports. This week, we will take a look at some of the best memes and reactions before, during, and after the big game.
Before the game even started, it was apparent that the biggest theme on Twitter would be roasting Tom Brady, the main antagonist of the football world for the past decade. Twitter did not disappoint.

So brave of Tom Brady to play today despite injuring his lips from kissing his son so hard

However, it was in the 2nd quarter where the Tom Brady roast session took off. On a trick play, Brady dropped a pretty easy catch and sports fans around the world bombarded Twitter with great reactions. Even worse, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles caught a Touchdown pass in a very similar play to Brady’s error – igniting the Twitter world even more.

The Super Bowl proved once again the power that social media has to bring people together. Instead of a funny joke that would have only been heard by the couple of people at your viewing party, jokes and reactions to the game, halftime show, and commercials are seen by millions of people around the world. Here is a few other great ones.

And finally, the rowdy Philadelphia fans were bound to cause some damage when celebrating their team’s victory. Hopefully it wasn’t something too important.
