On Monday afternoon, a Twitter user apparently named Abdul tweeted a funny photo of a guy at the Boston Marathon inspiring runners by reminding them that the Patriots had trailed the Falcons 28-3 in the Super Bowl before rallying to victory.

Here it is:

Pretty amusing, right? Some media outlets thought so. SB Nation tweeted at Abdul to ask if it could use his photo. Abdul, whose Twitter avatar appears to be him wearing a Red Sox shirt, had an interesting response:

Sure enough, a little while later ESPN reached out to Abdul, and he did not respond kindly.

Abdul is apparently still upset about ESPN’s role in Deflategate, the scandal that began when several reports, including from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, suggested Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had illicitly deflated footballs during an NFL playoff game.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Patriots fans deny ESPN over their Deflategate grievance—in fact, it’s at least the third time. But it may be the first time we’ve seen a Patriots fan demand ESPN block him on Twitter and then tell the network (or the innocent person running the assignment desk Twitter account) to “go fuck yourselves.”

Gotta love those Boston fans, amirite?
