Matt Birk’s Twitter Commentary Was The Best Part Of Ravens-Broncos

Matt Birk - Former Baltimore Ravens centerI’m not sure how retirement is treating Matt Birk, but if he’s looking for work I think he could easily find it as a Twitter play-by-play commentator with one of the sports networks. I don’t know if that’s actually a job — probably not.

Either way, Birk’s tweets were the best thing about watching Thursday night’s horribly depressing Broncos beating of the Ravens. There was humor mixed with actual insight. It was a million times better than listening to the game.

While Al Michaels and the reporters on NFL.com were bashing the Orioles for not moving their game for the Ravens home opener, Birk was stealing the show.

Here were a few of my favorite highlights.

Unfortunately, Birk was also misinformed about the Orioles-Ravens schedule conflict.
