Kirk Morrison apparently wanted the @kirkmorrison Twitter account so badly that he was willing to bribe Kirk Morrison to make it happen. Er, another Kirk Morrison. A Kirk Morrison that doesn’t play linebacker for the Bills. A Kirk Morrison who happens to be a 20-year old business student attending the University of Regina in Canada.
Since the younger Morrison (Kirk No. 2) tweeted from that account, the football playing-Morrison (Kirk No. 1) -- who previously tweeted from @kirkmorrison55 but needed to change his Twitter handle after his jersey number changed -- offered this setup: Buffalo’s Morrison would pay for a VIP trip for two to any Bills home game, along with two sideline passes, in exchange for the @kirkmorrison moniker.
The collegian agreed, and when the Bills faced the Jets last Sunday, the younger Kirk and his brother Kent, after flying into Toronto and being driven to Buffalo in a town car ordered by the Bills, were on the sidelines in the pregame and in the stands during the game.
"He is such a great guy," said Kirk No. 2, referring to Kirk No. 1 in the Regina Leader-Post (via Yahoo Sports). "He was super nice and friendly with us and happy to see us.”
On his new Twitter page, Kirk No. 1 called Kirk No. 2 his “brother from another mother.”
Indeed, earlier in the week, Kirk No. 1 said he was pumped to meet Kirk No. 2, and it showed as Kirk No. 1 rolled out the red carpet for Kirk No. 2. He tailgated with former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, and he met Thurman Thomas on the field before the game.
It was, it sounds like, an amazing experience. And the payoff for Kirk No. 1 is sweet. A Twitter handle with no clutter.
