This is the hilarity that happens when nuns live tweet the Super Bowl

SUPERBOWL,NUNS

Twitter users say following these religious sisters watch the Eagles and Patriots was better than the actual game.

Meet the sisters of the Society of Our Lady Of The Most Holy Trinity. They’re the Super Bowl watching nuns that take Twitter by storm with their delightful and utterly charming live tweets while watching the big game. Sr Miriam James, @OneGroovyNun on Twitter, started the tradition during Super Bowl 50 and it’s quickly become a highlight of Twitter each game day weekend. Recently their popularity has gained the attention.

We started it a couple of years ago just for fun, and then it grew from there,” she told HuffPost.

Their quirky enthusiasm quickly made it one of the most entertaining parts of the Super Bowl that year. They came back for Super Bowl 51 and didn’t disappoint. As one Twitter user, Mike Ford said: “Watching religious sisters live Tweet the super bowl is better than the game.”

Ultimately, the nuns are just in it to have fun and they hope everyone following them will have fun, too. “We love to laugh and hopefully bring people joy (while watching the Eagles win),” she says. 

In case you missed this year’s play by play, here are some of the best Tweets (and face-palm moments):
