SHOW AND TELL

Whether bitter or sweet, sports stars love their tweets. Here are the best tweets of 2012.

The Patriots wideout befriended Boehner after expressing concern over the Speaker's apparent unhappy demeanor during President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night.

"Anybody notice the guy over Obamas left shoulder doesn't seem very happy and he's not smiling. He's not clapping with joy," Ochocinco wrote during the president's address.

After one of the colorful wideout's followers help him identify Boehner, Ochocinco decided to reach out to the Speaker.

"Just read some of your tweets and you seem pretty angry kind sir," the six-time Pro Bowler wrote in a post directed at Boehner. "I can see you on tv but you're not smiling. Hope you're ok."

Ochocinco, 34, then decided to check in on Boehner Wednesday morning, writing, "Hello Mr. Boehner, hoping you are in better spirits today. If all else seems bad in life just remember I love you kind sir."

Boehner, a representative from Ohio's eighth district, not far from Cincinnati where Ochocinco spent the first 10 years of his NFL career, responded to let the receiver know he appreciated his concern and to wish him luck in the Patriots' upcoming Super Bowl clash against the New York Giants.

"Thanks & good luck in the @SuperBowl we'll see you in the playoffs next year," Boehner posted. "Go #Bengals."

The exchange drew the ire of at least one follower, who wrote, "wtf ocho..you didn't even know who he was until last night dummy."

"Well now we are friends you f****** Pansy," 11-year NFL veteran responded.
