We are often reminded of the power of social media, and one such instance occurred Sunday during an NFL playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys.
While adjusting a play at the line of scrimmage, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers uttered the phrase “New York Bozo” — NFL teams use various code words to change plays and formations before the snap of the ball.
The moment was captured in a “Vine” and posted on Twitter:

“New York Bozo” began trending almost immediately upon making its way to the snarky world of Twitter, with social media users speculating on what — or who — the phrase may represent.
Any true NFL fan can assure you Aaron is not espousing his political beliefs on the field, but given embattled New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s questionable involvement in recent events, social media users began making the connection.
Here are a few examples of the responses, as seen on Twitter:

Sounded like Rodgers was calling “New York Bozo” there. Nice to see them honoring Mayor de Blasio. — ChadTheElder (@ChadTheElder) January 11, 2015
