Overheard on Twitter: Darren Rovell Loses a Bet FTK

Darren Rovell, a well known ESPN business reporter who is rather easy to mock for his ridiculous Twitter polls, is a proud Northwestern grad. Like any important man, Rovell has a parody Twitter account (@notdrovell), who just happens to be an equally proud Penn State grad.

As you know by now, Penn State came from behind and beat Northwestern in exciting fashion. For the entire week, @notdrovell has forced some hilarious avatars on @darrenrovell:

Penn State beat Northwestern, Darren Rovell looks foolish, and 263,000 followers are exposed to THON for a day. All is right in the world.
