Needless to say, and unfortunately for Patriots fans, Roger Goodell is in fact alive and well.

The league’s account is currently followed by 19.2 million fans. NFL officials say they are looking into the specifics of how and why their Twitter was hacked.

  1. During the NFL 1 o’clock slate of games, what if the hacker had tweeted:

    The Department of Homeland Security has issued an emergency evacuation for all NFL stadiums. Remain calm. Exit immediately.

    Just something to consider.
