Tweet tweet: Today's top sports chatter
Give people a forum to speak their mind in 140 characters or less and you have provocative, diverse and controversial thoughts on the Internet. Give a sports celebrity the same forum, and you have this.
From Los Angeles Lakers' Matt Barnes (@MattBarnes_22): DON'T LET YOUR EARS WITNESS, WHAT YOUR EYES DIDN'T SEE!!!
Another use for twitter: athletes under arrest can argue their case before their lawyer tells them to shut up.
We love Jacory Harris -- he's a great kid. We're not sure what message he is trying to send from this picture, but the Ohio States Buckeyes are not intimidated.
From Florida Gators' Ahmad Black (@AhmadBlack35): Lmao why do people with nasty feet like to wear sandals? Help me understand
It's probably the same reason why a football player in Florida goes to school shirt-less in Oakland Raiders-themed overalls. Please help us understand your state.
From Green Bay Packers Jeff Owens (@jeffowens95): It's lunch time!!!! Taco Thursday
We know we shouldn't ask, but what the heck do you eat on Taco Tuesdays?
A series of tweets from ex-MLB'er Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco):
I want to be on pros vs joes. I can out distance and beet any human being in a home run hitting competition. I am watching the football comp
The pros are getting smoke by the joes how embarrassing
Indeed, Jose. It's almost as embarrassing as getting TKO'd in 77 seconds in a MMA debut. Almost, but not quite.
From Cincinnati Bengals' Antwan Odom (@antwanodom88): To my fans and teammates: Please don't believe the rumors. Yes I tested positive for a banned substance but it wasn't steroids or PEDs. More details to come but for now it's a league issue that's under appeal. Just know that I would never cheat to gain an edge in this game that I love. Don't lose your faith in me and please don't pass judgement based on vicious rumors until all the facts are known. Thank you for all your support I really need it now.
I love all of you,
This just screams Brian Cushing, doesn't it? Props for using the twitter app that lets you tweet more than 140 characters!!
From Phoenix Coyotes' Paul Bissonnette (@Biznasty2point0): Oh and I met some english girl last night from london. Not ganna lie that accent gets some blood flow out of me. Almost ripped my jeans.
Larry the Cable Guy now has some competition.
From NASCAR spotter Brett Griffin (@19spotter): If Old Spice is leaving Tony Stewart for that stupid a** Ray Lewis commercial then good luck!
If Old Spice has Ray Lewis as its new celebrity spokesman, then Tim Tebow pushing for the legalization of pot can't be that far behind.
From Penn State's Robert Bolden (@Rbolden1_PSU): First time actually watching jersey shore. #wow
And no doubt, the last.
From golfer John Daly (@PGA_JohnDaly): C'mon people yes I am John Daly--you see that blue check -----------> I am one Twittered Verimified Redneck, any questions? LOL
Actually yes ... what is "verimified?"
From Notre Dame Fighting Irish's TJ Jones (@Tai_Jones7): i love sweet tea from the dirty souf!!
Indeed ... it's better than the Kool-aid usually served in South Bend.
We're going to take a stab at this and say ... yes. Even more.
From golfer Rory McIlroy (@McIlroyRory): I played like I was on drugs today!!
Depending on what drugs, that could be good or bad.
Where is his dad from? It's summer, and he shows up in Florida in leather?
From NASCAR's Kenny Wallace (@Kenny_Wallace): Practice was ok today..not great..I have a irritating push in the middle of the corner..Front tires are chattering..I will drive my Ass off.
Born to be a race car driver. Too honest to be a politician.
Two things come to mind here. One, when has Southwest ever had any seats available? Two, is this some kind of a sick joke? Signed, the one who always gets the middle seat.
She'll care once she understands the words "incentive bonus."
From Cincinnati Bengals' Ocho Cinco (@OGOchoCinco): Put your bedroom slippers under your bed before you go to sleep, this will force u to get on your knees in the morning for #prayer
Just when we thought Ocho Cinco was a little too "over the top," he tweets a sweet tweet.
From Cincinnati Bengals' Ocho Cinco (@OGOchoCinco): Anybody in the Cincy area that wants to make an extra thousand dollars, i need a home cooked meal 2 night, chicken,yams,greens,macncheese
From Minnesota Vikings' Percy Harvin (@1GatorKing2), tweeting before the Saints-Vikings game: Its crazy out here! They really think they're gonna win. Smh. its gonna be a lot of dissappointed Aints fans!
Click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like Gainesville ..."
