This is the tweet that put yesterday’s Independence Bowl on the map, courtesy of SI’s Stewart Mandel.

Uh oh — the Air Force Falcon flew away during pregame festivities. If you see a lost bird in Shreveport, please call …

53 retweeters later and you have a shitstorm that had Twitter by the balls until word came down that the falcon had been located in downtown Shreveport. The team won a bowl game and got its bird back. All is good.
