Well, looks like Kaepernick is about as good at reading a room as he is at reading a defense. Seriously though, what the hell is going on San Francisco? Harbaugh leaves and half of the team leaders retire. Now you got your halfwit quarterback getting happy tweet and blasting ravaged cities on social media. It's almost like the 49ers needed that strong disciplinarian in the locker room to keep the inmates from running the asylum.
You know what the worst part of this Instagram post is? No, it's not that Kaepernick showed no sensitivity to the people of a city whose lives are facing a very real threat. It's not that he trivialized a natural disaster just so he could hashtag some stupid nickname that he probably gave himself. The worst part about this is that this joke was in reference to a PRESEASON game. Of very punny, Colin. That joke was about as pointless as it was classless. If you really wanted to get froggy you should have leaped tweet first into the Ferguson situation. At least St. Louis is a team that you have a real rivalry with. Not Houston, a team from a different conference that you are going to play one series against in a completely meaningless game.
The backtracking might actually be the funniest part of the situation. You can't attach a picture of 25 cars completely engulfed in water then claim that you don't know the gravity of what was taking place. More people probably lost their lives in the filming of that picture than snaps Kaepernick will take during the first preseason game. How about you save your offensive, tone deaf attempts at shit talking for a situation in which it is called for? I shouldn't have to look up your team's schedule to find out what you are running your mouth about, but I'll be damned if I didn't nearly fall out of my seat when I did. I guess I should have been better prepared for the '7torm'. Time to turn the Beats By Dre up because this wave of criticism is going to make Houston look like the 'splash zone' at a amusement park.
