Beat the Tweets answer sheet

Are you cheating? Be sure you take a look at the blurred-out
versions of these and
try
your hand at guessing
first. But if you’re itching for the
answers, here they are:

No. 1: C.J. Watson

 

 

Last week, Watson
reached
a deal
to be the new backup point guard for the Indiana Pacers.
Apparently he has some doubters, and he’s not too happy about
it.

No. 2: Phil Jackson

 

 

With the Miami Heat perhaps working on a three-peat and the Los
Angeles Lakers over a decade removed now from theirs, the Zen
Master took time out to remind us all of the greatness of his
Chicago Bulls teams, posting this snazzy picture.

No. 3: Brandon McCarthy

 

 

While a clip of McCarthy’s
scary 2012
injury
was playing during a recent episode of MLB Tonight, MLB
network analyst Mitch Williams said, “If you don’t pitch (inside),
this is what’s gonna happen.” McCarthy fired back with a scathing
rebutall and
unleashed
a Twitter meme
in response.

No. 4: Iron Sheik

 

 

Yes, it’s our
old
friend
Sheikie Baby. Often too full of controversial language
to feature in this space, the Sheik gets it just right with this
tweet.

No. 5: Roddy White

 

 

The George Zimmerman verdict has elicted
waves
of response from athletes
since it landed Saturday night. The
Falcons wide receiver sent out a particularly caustic tweet,
saying, “All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves
for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid.” He later
followed up with this apology.

No. 6: Brian Vickers

 

 

It had been 139 races since Vickers had scored a Cup series win.
That stretch included a medical leave of absence to deal with a
blod clot issue. On Sunday, at Loudon, Vickers
snapped
the skid
and found himself back in Victory Lane.

No. 7: Jordan Spieth

 

 

Just 19 years old and a PGA tour winner. Spieth became the
youngest
winner in 82 years
on tour on Sunday when he won the John Deere
Classic in a playoff, earning himself a spot in the British Open
and starting a torrent of discussion about golf’s next big
thing.

No. 8: San Jose Sharks

 

 

The tweet of the week goes to the NHL’s San Jose Sharks. After
ESPN’s Twitter account sent them a — um — toothless
joke about
switching
their name to the Sharknados
(because why
wouldn’t you want to be named for a campy Syfy original
movie?), the team responded with quite the burn.
