Canadian student swaps Twitter handle for Bills VIP weekend
Linebacker Kirk Morrison had been using the Twitter handle @kirkmorrison55 when he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
There was only one problem with that handle when he joined the Buffalo Bills. Morrison no longer wears No. 55; he wears 58 in Buffalo.
Morrison wanted to go with @kirkmorrison as his Twitter handle, but that was already taken by a 20-year-old college student in Regina, Saskatchewan, who is also named Kirk Morrison. So Morrison, the football player made a deal with Morrison the college student. He acquired the handle @kirkmorrison from the young man by swapping an all-expenses paid trip to last Sunday's Bills-Jets game for the moniker.
By all accounts, both Morrison the student and Morrison the football star had a big day - except for the fact that the Jets hammered the Bills, 27-11 that day.
