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 NASCAR driver Scott Speed (@scottspeed): Just got a VERY large check in the mail from my income tax return! Yeah!!! I’m cashin this (bleep) and throwing a party lol
And the thousands of NASCAR fans who can’t afford to go to any races this year are certainly thrilled you got a "VERY large" refund check from the millions you earned this year.
From Green Bay Packers’ Nick Barnett (@NickBarnett): My buddy is here for [from] Montana so getting ready to take out to show him gb [Green Bay]… Should be a great night in gb
And a short one at that.
From Oakland Raiders’ Quentin Groves (@QuentinGroves52): Headed to have dinner with the Hendersons…..wonder what should I order??
Who the heck are the Hendersons? Are they vegans or something? PS: tell them we said "hi."
From Minnesota Vikings’ Bryant McKinnie (@bigmacvikings): Just woke up from the longest nap ever. U ever sleep so hard u think its the next day?
Yes. It’s called a good night’s sleep.
From the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Joel Hanrahan (Hanrahan4457): Does anybody know if you are supposed to tip the Stanley steamer carpet cleaners?
Having to drive that pimped-out yellow van and park it in your driveway certainly qualifies for a pity tip, so we say "yes to the yellow mess."
From (UFL) Sacramento Mountain Lions’ Sonny Shackelford (@Sonny_Shack): When u want apples but life gives u lemons,u gotta take the (bleeping) lemons and do what u can
What happened to the (bleeping) lemonade????? We’ve been saying it wrong all these years?
From former NFL’er Thurman Thomas (@thurmanthomas): How does Matt Millen keep a job???????????????????????????????
Somewhere, there is a secret Detroit Lions’ fan club that makes sure Millen stays on as a football analyst so that he never steps foot in an NFL draft war room again.
From Seattle Seahawks’ Mike Williams (@BMW_USC1): Golden Grahams or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.. That is the ?
If you can’t make up your mind, just pour a cup of sugar down your throat instead.
From Cincinnati Bengals’ Terrell Owens (@terrellowens): Yes, Dhani Jones drives this!
What a Smart Car looks like when it grows up?
From former Los Angeles Lakers’ and current Dancing with the Stars contestant Rick Fox (@rickafox): Anybody seen my dance shoes?
Has it really come to this, Rick?
From Denver Broncos’ Jarvis Moss (@GucciMoss): I have matured hella since becomin a yung millionare. Headed to nfl meetin then wrkout
Where do we go with this, Gucci?
From Cincinnati Bengals’ Chad Ocho Cinco (@OGOchoCinco): Okay the kids said they are not cleaning up because i owe them all an I-Touch, WTF!!! who is the parent damit!! (Kevin Hart voice)
Look at it this way, Chad. After you buy them all Maybachs for their 18th birthdays, your parenting "work" is basically done.
From Boston Celtics’ Nate Robinson (@nate_robinson): 2day is the day I start my no pork no fried food for 1 year, I can do this bro bet is on
Since bacon is a pork product, we give you one month. Man Rule #107: Man cannot live without bacon.
From NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler (@Elliott_Sadler): Having fun this morning packing for my Elk hunt with Realtree Outdoors. My wife said my clothes smell like dirt. I just laughed and said Yep
Two questions here: 1. What does one exactly pack for an elk hunt? A Howitzer? 2. Since elk are one of North America’s largest mammals, how hard are they to really "hunt"?
From Miami Dolphins’ Vontae Davis (@VontaeDavis21): Wow Brett Favre thinks I’m one of the best corners in this league that nobody knows about. Truly a compliment coming from him. Thank u Brett
If Brett said it, well, then there’s no doubt he means it. He’s a man of his word. (PS: congrats!)
From Cincinnati Reds’ Mike Leake (@MikeLeake44): watching a little Scarface before heading to the field. first time watching it. what should i expect?
It’s the feel good story of the year, Mike. Slightly more intense than Finding Nemo. Enjoy!
From former NFL’er Thurman Thomas (@thurmanthomas): If ur a TEAM Player, you carry someones shoulder pads in training camp…… I’m just saying..
Dead horse, meet your beating.
From Florida Gators’ Ahmad Black (@AhmadBlack35): So we just go to sleep on benches now? I wonder if they would wake up if I walked by and bumped the bench lol
Try it and report back obviously.
From Boston Celtics’ Shaquille ONeal (@The_Real_Shaq): A 992 IToibi biquT2TA pnilim29M Put that in front of a mirror and read it to ur self
Like all of his tweets, it doesn’t make sense.
