Brandt Snedeker loses Twitter battle and possibly an NHL Playoffs bet with Luke Donald

April 16, 2015

Not surprisingly, Nashville native and resident Brandt Snedeker is a big Nashville Predators fan. And not surprisingly, he got pretty excited when his team jumped out to a 3-0 lead in Game 1 of its NHL Playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

That drew this response from big Blackhawks fan Luke Donald:

From there, the two went back and forth:

When Chicago tied the game about 10 minutes later (the Blackhawks scored three second-period goals to quickly erase the deficit), Donald tweeted this photo from the movie "Anchorman":

The Blackhawks wound up winning the game 4-3 in double overtime and there were no more tweets between Donald and Snedeker. Either they took their conversation offline or Donald realized rubbing it in after such a rough loss wouldn't be very nice. As Ron Burgundy would say, "Stay classy, PGA Tour."
