Snooki Is Pregnant & It's All Matt Carle's Fault

In last night's 2 - 1 win over the Buffalo Sabres, Flyers defenseman Matt Carle caught a ton of heat on Twitter. Just after Buffalo went up on Philly, 1 - 0, late in the 2nd period, all the Carle hate began flooding the social network like the aftermath of a broken dam.

Former Broad Street Bully, Ville Leino, was the Sabre to beat Bryzgalov the only time during the tilt. Leino slipped inside Ilya's blindside uncontested and managed to put the cheddar in on net while Carle stood leisurely by --

Naturally, after every goal against us, I take to Twitter to see everyone's reactions. Matt was a hot topic of the discussion, and the subject matter quickly took on a hashtag....


At first, the hashtag started out small and was used by a small minority of Flyers fans I follow. But then it grew much, much larger. In fact, for almost an entire hour, #MattCarlesFault was trending in the city of Philadelphia and its area.

If you're not accustom to the contemporary social network or its lingo, "trending" is a term used to describe what a very large group of Twitter users are discussing at once over the network's timeline. And the hashtag?

Users can group posts together by topic or type by use of hashtags – words or phrases prefixed with a "#" sign. Similarly, the "@" sign followed by a username is used for mentioning or replying to other users. ~

And that's how #MattCarlesFault was born.

After awhile, the trend began taking on a life of its own. Users were being less than serious with their postings of the idiom, and it had morphed into sarcastic, hilarious buffoonery.
