St. John's basketball Twitter touchy after big loss

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

After a 19-point loss, the St. John's basketball team's official Twitter account was a tad sensitive to an apparently mundane headline

The St. John's basketball team lost to the No. 16 Baylor Bears, 97-78 Sunday, and ESPN New York sent out a pretty innocuous tweet about the game.

Nothing wrong with that, I believe. In a 40-minute basketball game, 19 points qualifies, barely, as a blowout. Maybe some editorial discretion was taken there, but nothing to get upset over.

Except...

Someone's a little sensitive, huh? You'd think being from Queens, the Red Storm's social media rep would have thicker skin. But the wittle Johnnies just want the big bad weekend editor of ESPN New York to be less of a meany-head. Is that too much to ask?
