Among the beneficiaries of Sunday's Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree spat, along with Erin Andrews and the lore of the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry, was Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Tom Crabtree.

Because he has the same surname as the San Francisco wideout and he is also a professional football player, Tom Crabtree received thousands of new followers in the wake of the feud and Sherman's boisterous postgame interview with Andrews.

Tom Crabtree sent out some hilarious tweets as the new followers rolled in:






But the name mixup was far from Crabtree's only Twitter excitement of the night. He also had a playful back-and-forth with actor Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson, who has more than three million followers in Twitter, is known for his lack of a filter. During the 49ers-Seahawks game last night he sent out several profane messages, including this one:


Later, Crabtree sent out this message regarding another of Jackson's profane tweets.


This got Jackson's attention, and he responded with this sarcastic tweet:


Naturally, Crabtree got in the final word.



All told, it was quite the evening for the 28-year-old Crabtree.


"What a weird night," Crabtree told Jimmy Traina of Fox Sports. "I have some people who think Michael Crabtree actually called out Samuel L., but I've been getting tweets intended for Michael throughout the playoffs."
