Call it a joke, or call it creepy, but whatever you call it, Cards DL Darnell Dockett sure is persistent.
The lineman is jumping on the bandwagon about Katherine Webb, the pageant-winning girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, who was “highlighted” about a million times during Monday night’s BCS Title Game dud between Bama and Notre Dame.
Webb went from unknown to star in seconds, being shown time after time during the game. Webb gained tens of thousands of Twitter followers during and after Alabama’s 42-14 win.
Dockett was one of those followers, and proceeded to push the ‘creepy’ button with message after message for Webb via Twitter.
@_KatherineWebb aye u going to king of diamonds Monday after game?
There was no response, but that didn’t stop Dockett, who proceeded to give HIS PHONE NUMBER to Webb in another tweet that was deleted.
Aye @_KatherineWebb hit me (240) xxx-xxxx when game over, lets go to wing stop then King of diamond
Dockett than realized he gave his number, but by then it was too late, and awhile later, went right back to hitting on Webb.
As of 6 p.m. Tuesday, Webb had topped 175,000 Twitter followers, trumping McCarron’s 114,000. Before the game, she reportedly had about 2,000.
Count Dockett as maybe the most aggressive of them.
