Blake Bortles Said He Played Darts During Hurricane Irma Power Outage, and Twitter Gave Us 500 Variations of the Same Joke (Tweets)
Hurricane Irma didn’t do nearly as much damage to Jacksonville as it did to southern Florida, but the city did experience flooding and power outages.
On Wednesday, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles told reporters that his foundation was going to be helping the city recover. Which is awesome. Unfortunately for Bortles, that’s not all he told reporters.
Blake Bortles lost Internet/Wi-Fi bc of storm: “You forget how bad that sucks. I played darts by myself yesterday for an hour and a half.”

Would you like to take a guess as to what Twitter had to say about this?
That’s right. Twitter made about 500 different errant dart jokes. Take a look:

Probably hit the board twice. https://t.co/h1ov5Fs84D

No truth to the rumor that he never hit that target, either. https://t.co/i6NifLyjCM

he can probably claim the wall around his dart board as storm damage then
