Tweet tweet: Odom’s sappy shout out

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 Green Bay Packers’ Ryan Grant (RyanGrant 25): Question for the NFL..If you’re on IR can you get in trouble for tweeting during the game? do the same rules apply? what do u guys think?

Ryan, here’s a twitter account you might want to follow: @nflcommish

From former NFL’er Thurman Thomas (@thurmanthomas): I mean you get an DWI, get benched for a quarter, and score a TD, and then Dance…. LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME, it’s all about ME…

Not everyone is enamored with Braylon Edwards’ return from his alleged "blow a .15, do .25 time" punishment.

From Cincinnati Bengals’ Chad Ocho Cinco (@OGOchoCinco):  I wake up, get out of bed and everything hurts, my ankle is swolen, rib still cracked, right hand won’t close, n left pinky dislocated,damn

For the record, cracked ribs usually are "still cracked" after a week.

From Green Bay Packers’ Jermichael Finley (@jermichaelF88): Can we change kickoff to noon. I need to talk espn and c can we get this show on the way. Im juiced up!

Is a professional athlete using the phrase "juiced up" a wise idea?

From San Diego Padres’ Heath Bell (@HeathBell21): SF fans love to talk too. You guys are something. It’s funny to hear what they say.

We agree. Too bad the ones you’re talking about aren’t 49ers fans.

From Los Angeles Lakers Lamar Odom (@RealLamarOdom): Happy anniversary to the love of my life. My wife, my best friend, my world. I love you mama

Awwww, there’s always that "one guy" that makes millions of men feel intense pressure to do something other than just remember their wedding anniversary. Lamar Odom is "that guy."

From NFLPA Senior Director of Former Players’ Nolan Harrison (@NolanHarrison74):  How many people are making up the alibi’s for leaving work early today/calling in sick tomorrow in the Chicago/Green Bay area?

Better yet, how many of them will still be in total denial about the chances of their respective teams going to the Super Bowl?

From Vernon Hamilton (@VHamilton25), two tweets:


September 27th: So I can’t attend Media Day Today because the ukraine offices where I last played have not sent my release to sign with Detroit yet.

How can you officially sign with a team and not be able to attend Media Day three days later because you haven’t signed?

From Team Europe Ryder Cup golfer Graeme_McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell): We have a team meeting at 6 so will keep you posted on the tweeting ban……………let’s hope not!!!! Go Europe!!!!

If you all thought tweeting was just an American thing, think again.

From Cleveland Cavaliers Daniel Gibson (@BooByD_Gibson): They just dilated my pupils… I can’t see (bleep)! SMH.. Can y’all see this. Maybe I shouldn’t drive huh?

Braylon Edwards says go for it.

From USC’s Malcolm Smith (@MalcSmitty): Cracked Mac who knows where I can get it fixed asap

Going to take a wild stab here — an Apple store?

From Cleveland Cavaliers’ Daniel Gibson (@BooByD_Gibson): Busted! D. Green Caught coming out the Women’s restroom. Guess the Mens ran out of Toilet Paper.. SMDH!

Who needs TMZ when you have twitter?

From Team Europe Ryder Cup golfer Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter):  For the record Colin hasn’t banned twitter, he has asked to be respectful to the teams privacy. I played 7 holes today course is awesome.

If Team USA fans were worried about their golf team playing Team Europe, relax. Team Europe is more interested in their twitter ban. Or non-ban.

From NASCAR’s Kenny Wallace (@Kenny_Wallace): Oh Stop it everyone!..Yall nit pic every damn thing i say…Ok they both are Great Drivers..One has more Money than the other..Hows that?

The Golden Rule pretty much sums it up.

From USC’s C.J. Gable (@ CJ_Gable): Love is evil spell it backward

E-V-O-L … L-I-V-E … huh?

From USC players’ Brice Butler (@USCNumber19) and Kyle Prater (@kprater85) respectively, two tweets about the 113 degree record set in downtown Los Angeles:


Man its hot outside… I barely have clothes on!

105 degrees!!!! WTF it’s hotter den six camels in bagdad

Anyone else get some really frightening visuals after those two tweets?

From Kentucky Wildcats’ Randall Cobb (@rcobb18): I thnk Im spendin my time w the wrong women I thnk I have a chance @ love knowin me I miss it cuz me dedicatin my time just isnt realistic

In other words, "I wanna play around."

From Phoenix Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0), two tweets:


Like what’s wrong with people. Is chrysler giving these things away for free?

Another munson. Like do u have to custom order that? Does jeep make them that color? Who drives that? fawk.

There were some recent dismissals of Chrysler workers drinking/smoking weed on the job, but that’s probably just a coincidence.

From New Orleans Saints’ Jeremy Shockey (@JeremyShockey): Im in love with Ana De la Reguera.. pls help me out!!

Maybe Kenny Powers can hook you guys up?
