Of course, that’s not even the best part of what happened: the winner of the feud somehow ended up being the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.
The feud started on Monday when the Colts unveiled a mysterious new slogan for the 2017 season: Colts Forged.
So what does #ColtsForged even mean?
That’s a great question that no one seems to have the answer to.
Although no one knows what #ColtsForged is supposed to mean, the Titans had one theory about it’s possible meaning.
You see, the Titans believe that the Colts kind of copied off of Tennessee’s team motto for 2017, which is “Forge Ahead.”
As it turns out though, the Titans weren’t even the first team to use “Forge Ahead” as their motto, a fact that the Vikings kindly pointed out on Twitter during this 48-hour long debate.
After seeing that tweet from the Vikings, the Colts decided to point out the fact that using the word forged is something that people have been doing for more than 800 years.
Judging by these tweets, you can clearly see that these three teams definitely did not forge a new friendship this week, and one of them may have committed forgery against another, even though all three plan to forge ahead with their 2017 motto.
With so many definitions of “forge” out there, it was only a matter of time before a dictionary finally decided to weigh in, and that’s exactly what Merriam-Webster did.
