Tweeters including Samuel L. Jackson bark up wrong Crabtree

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jan 20, 2014

It seems that former Packers and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Tom Crabtree had to endure a bit of a long night after a guy with his same last name not only lost the NFC Championship Game, but became the unintended object of a WWE-like rant by a winning Seattle Seahawk.  He also had an interesting interaction during the game with actor Samuel L. Jackson.

49ers receiver Michael Crabtree was the target of what could have been a game-winning touchdown pass in the final seconds, but Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman tipped the pass, leading to an interception.

Tom Crabtree got inundated by tweets after the game.

Well, someone has in recent years, the voice of the Baltimore Ravens, Gerry Sandusky. No, not THAT Jerry Sandusky (imprisoned for the incidents at Penn State).

Anyway, Tom Crabtree had fun with it, too.

Sherman, by the way, was a bit loud and not-so-subtle about his thoughts after the game.

There's a bonus! Tom Crabtree "gets into it" with Samuel L. Jackson.
