Rams relocating to Los Angeles, Chargers have option to join
Wednesday January 13th, 2016

NFL owners approved the St. Louis Rams’ relocation to Los Angeles on Tuesday night, which set off a Twitter explosion on one Silicon Valley woman’s phone.

Lara M. Sasken, the director of communications for GoPro, has owned the Twitter handle ‘@LaraMS’ for years, which seems pretty normal considering her initials. What she is now well aware of is that ‘LaraMS’ also spells out ‘LARams,’ Calfornia’s newest football team.

Some tagged her in tweets regarding the Rams, while others noted that the team will likely approach her about the handle. Regardless, she was one of the most tweeted-about people on the website Tuesday.

And, of course, some folks trolled.
