‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin unable to accept Stephen F. Austin game invite

Update: Unfortunately, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had to inform the program on Saturday afternoon that he would be unable to take Stephen F. Austin up on its invitation.

Original story:

Outside of Thomas Walkup resembling a lumberjack, there was nothing more popular on social media late Friday night than posting pictures, GIFs and videos of WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as a method of honoring No. 14 seed Stephen F. Austin’s stunning 70-56 upset of third-seeded West Virginia.

They came in fast and furious.

And the end result — if the Lumberjacks get their way — may be the ultimate slobberknocker: The Texas Rattlesnake showing up at SFA’s second-round game on Sunday against No. 6 seed Notre Dame.

The offer has been extended. Austin himself event recognized a tremendous “And That’s the Bottom Line” graphic with a retweet.

The only question that remains is whether the six-time WWE heavyweight champion will make his way to Brooklyn for the 2:40 p.m. ET showdown.

It would be, let’s just say, a Stone Cold Stunner. (OK, I’ll show myself out.)
