ATLANTA – Julian Edelman had a little down time on Thursday as the New England Patriots continued their preparation for Super Bowl LIII.
So he took to Twitter and decided to have a little bit of fun, as he is known to do on social media and in real life.
The Patriots wide receiver tweeted:
That image is mimicking In-N-Out Burger’s logo, which is the popular West Coast burger chain that is huge in California. Animal style is a (the best) type of way you can get your burgers (extra sauce, pickles, grilled onions, and the burgers are grilled with mustard) Edelman is from California so he gets it.
So yeah, shots fired a bit in LA, in a fun way that shouldn’t really annoy or anger anyone.
Edelman explained Thursday afternoon why he decided tweet that, telling For the Win: “It’s just having fun with what’s going on and enjoying it but also being able to communicate with the people that are supporting you and the franchise.”
You can see him deliver that answer after he delivers his very specific In-N-Out Burger order right here:
His order, in full:
“I’d go Double-Double, animal style. Then I’d go a single… actually, I’d go two Double-Doubles. One animal style, one raw onion, animal (style) fry and and a Coke with ice.”
And now I’m hungry.
Julian Edelman loves some In-N-Out Burger.
