Student gets 'trip of a lifetime' for giving @kirkmorrison to Bills linebacker

Leader-Post.com

Kirk Morrison the football player made this deal with University of Regina student Kirk Morrison: Hand over @kirkmorrison and in exchange you get an all-expense-paid trip for two and sideline passes. The 20-year-old Canadian agreed -- he's now @kirkmorrison91 -- and attended last Sunday's Bills game with his brother. "I know Buffalo maybe has a bad rep, but the people in that city treated us so well everywhere we went," he says. "They took us under their wing, so to speak, and they showed us a great time." He also got to spend some time with the veteran linebacker formerly known as @kirkmorrison55. "He is such a great guy. He was super nice and friendly with us and happy to see us," says the student. "We had such a great time, met so many amazing people and made a new friend in (Kirk Morrison)." | Earlier: Twitter sets up a meeting of Morrisons at a Bills game.
