After being rejected by the US Open Tennis Twitter account, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock responded on July 4.
Last week, the US Open Tennis Twitter account roasted new Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock. A Seahawks fan responded to a Wimbledon highlights video shared by the SportsCenter Twitter account, saying “not a sport”. That’s when the US Open Tennis Twitter account put this particular user in his place, saying “not a sport says person about to watch 17 games from Drew Lock to QB”.
The comment from the US Open Tennis Twitter account has gone viral. Lock finally posted a response on July 4, wishing everyone a happy holiday “but especially the @usopen intern.”

In case you were wondering, yes, the Twitter account responded to Lock with a familiar meme of the Nintendo character Mario holding a crown.
Lock is in Seattle in part because of Russell Wilson’s business. 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 several draft picks in exchange for Wilson.
After a promising end to his rookie campaign, Lock was unable to retain his starting position, as evidenced by his being Teddy Bridgewater’s backup last season. In three years, Lock completed 59.3% of his passes for 4,740 yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He went 8-3 as a starter.
Lock is competing for the starting quarterback position alongside Geno Smith, who started in games last season as Wilson was sidelined with an injury.
