With those two words, Bill Simmons unknowingly (or knowingly -- we'll get to that) started a rumor saying disgruntled New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss(notes) was close to being traded to the Minnesota Vikings. The ESPN.com columnist quickly backtracked though, explaining that the two-word Tweet was intended as a direct message to one person and wasn't supposed to go out to his 1.2 million followers.
"Sorry that last tweet was supposed to be a DM. Rumors swirling about a Pats-Minny trade for Randy Moss."
