As someone who prefers to communicate with words instead of symbols — hieroglyphs are cool, but I thought we had evolved beyond that — emojis aren't really a big part of my world.
Still, I am compelled to let you know that there are now official emojis for all 32 NFL teams, corresponding to hashtags that relate to each one.
For the Vikings, it's pretty simple: #skol on Twitter brings up an image of horns. Interestingly, the Vikings were among just a handful of teams that don't have their logo as their emoji.
Among the other hashtags used by the other 31 teams:
#GoPackGo (for Green Bay), #FeedDaBears (for Chicago) and #OnePride (for Detroit) within the division.
Some teams kept it simple like #DallasCowboys and #Broncos (with corresponding logos).
The Steelers? They're using #HereWeGo.
