Beat the Tweets answer sheet

Are you cheating? Be sure you take a look at the blurred-out

versions of these and


your hand at guessing first. But if you’re itching for the

answers, here they are:

No. 1: C.J. Watson



Last week, Watson


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


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


a Twitter meme in response.

No. 4: Iron Sheik

friend Sheikie Baby. Often too full of controversial language

to feature in this space, the Sheik gets it just right with this


No. 5: Roddy White



The George Zimmerman verdict has elicted

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


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


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


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


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.
