Sports fans have been avidly following the three-ring circus that was the San Francisco 49ers as they tried to court the most coveted free agent of all time, Peyton Manning.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to this dramatic turn of events.

Like a bride being abandoned at the alter, the 49ers could not seal the deal and Manning rejected us for the Denver Broncos. Meanwhile Alex Smith, who nearly took the team to the Super Bowl was left, humiliated, on the sidelines. And now he may also be leaving SF. This is becoming like a Mexican soap opera. Drama!
