As the Dallas Cowboys’ kicker Brett Maher struggled yet again in another playoff game, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott decided to take to Twitter to troll Cowboys fans. Abbott ribbed the struggling kicker with a tweet on Sunday night, January 22, that read: “I swear, I can kick as good as the Dallas Cowboys kicker.”
The tweet was very tongue-in-cheek given that Abbott must use a wheelchair after a 1984 accident where a tree weakened by a storm fell on him and injured his spine, paralyzing him. Abbott was referring to Maher missing another extra-point kick — after missing four the week prior — in the Cowboys’ NFC Divisional Round game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. The Cowboys lost 19-12.
