Brad Marchand runs one of the most entertaining Twitter accounts of any Boston-area pro athlete. Now we get to see what the Bruins winger can come up with on Instagram.

Marchand announced to his followers on Wednesday that he’s starting his own Instagram account on Friday, promising “good entertainment”. He’s got his work cut out for him to be as good at it as teammate Zdeno Chara, whose own Instagram account became an instant hit when he launched it last January.

But based on Marchand’s tweets, which often involve some amusing ribs with his teammates, he’ll have some fire memes in store for us once he gets rolling on Instagram. Speaking of that, his latest tweet war with defenseman Torey Krug seems to have escalated quickly. It started on Wednesday when Krug posted a picture of Marchand’s “Angry Elf Pills”. Then Marchand eventually responded by meme-ing Krug into the iconic bowl of cereal in Honey I Shrunk the Kids:

Krug let that one go, but then moved on to Marchand’s Instagram announcement and brought Patrice Bergeron into it – which really took things to another level. Now, the world waits to see what kind of response Marchand has in store for this vicious attack.

Instagram offers all kinds of new possibilities with its focus on photos and videos. If Marchand’s hilarious Twitter is any indication, his Instagram should be a lot of fun.
