Horse Tracks: Media drama on Twitter

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

In case you missed it, an ESPN writer, Kevin Van Valkenburg, wrote an article on Peyton Manning after the game that made Manning out to be an old, beaten up has been who needs to retire. He happened to be standing near Mike Klis as he was chatting with Manning and that ruffled Mike's feathers quite badly ... taking things to Twitter and we all can enjoy a good Twitter fight.

Kevin tried to explain himself, but Mike wasn't having any of that. The guy spoke poorly of the Denver Broncos, after all. Get 'em Mike!

Kevin was like, "Why is this guy freaking out on me?"

Mike could not be more indignant and Kevin gives up trying to smooth things over. The rest of us can giggle at the absurdity of it all. But yeah, I was not a fan of Kevin's hit piece either.
