David Price’s girlfriend Tiffany Nicole Smith loves to get on social media and talk. She is the mother of two boys. She classifies herself as “big city smart and small-town friendly” in her Twitter profile. Before I checked in on her social media activities, I prepared myself to attempt to like her internet persona. She is annoying, though. She complains about everything under the sun. Scan through her social media feed and count how many airplane complaints she puts up. Nobody wants to hear your airplane complaints, Tiffany. As a rule of thumb, remember: people are almost never as funny or clever as they think they are.
While reading her tweets, I did notice she talks a lot about racial inequality, and that’s cool. I’m sure David Price’s girlfriend has a heart of gold, but she did poison the well a little back when she called Boston Red Sox fans “pieces of shit.” That is certainly bad for business. Whether she thought it was okay or not, it just did not come off as classy at all. Hey, it’s only social media. I guess everybody, including me, shouldn’t take it so seriously, right?
David Price has made the most sincere effort to apologize in recent athlete Twitter screw ups. He’s offered heartfelt apologies for fans, and those he went after, even going so far as to call Ortiz away from the field to apologize. He took himself off the hook before I ever got the chance to go after him. Damn your sincere apology, David Price.
Tiffany Nicole on the other hand, isn’t apologizing for her comments, but also isn’t standing by them as she once did. Following Saturday’s game 2 in Boston, Nicole went to Twitter to announce to the world just how awful everyone from Boston truly is saying:
@MsKansasState: Convinced that there must be a written rule that in order to be a Red Sox fan, you have to be a complete and utter POS. Wow!. – 5:55PM, October 4. 2013
@MsKansasState:: Wow he pimped the crap out of that homerun. #KeepItClassyBoston – 8:37 PM October 5, 2013
OK so we’ve all been there: frustrated and want to declare everyone something (like POS). And while it’s a bit of a broad brush to assign every Sox fan on earth the POS tag, we’ve heard it before. That said, it’s probably pretty easy to assign a title to a group if faced with harassing comments, ridicule, or even the occasional thrown beer.
In my personal experience, I’ve been to 12 MLB stadiums, and without hesitation the worst treatment I ever got was in Tampa Bay. So what’s my point here? The truth is, everyone sucks. Every sports fan in every city is an awful form of human being. People suck. Sports fans in general drink too much, are rude to women and children, and most of the time, have no idea what they’re talking about.
David Price’s girlfriend certainly comes off as snobbish. There’s just reams and reams of condescending, snide comments on her social media. “People take pride in some strange things these days,” she says with the little eye-rolling emoji. Tiffany, nobody knows what you’re talking about, and nobody cares. Maybe she thinks she’s amazing, but she sounds like she has an attitude problem. David and Tiffany also have a dog named Astro. Tiffany informs us that “Astro is just like his daddy- farting in the car with the windows up.” Okay, thanks for the information there, chief. A day or two before she posted that, she said, “Social media is savage…bounds no longer exist.” You don’t say?
On a final note, there have been a lot of searches over the past 6 months for, “David Price’s wife”. I doubt this is indicative of actual information, but it does bring up a good point. The couple has been together for quite some time, perhaps it’s time David?
