Spanning the Twitterverse: Friday Fun Tweets

Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets
The thrill of the retweet and the agony of the unfollow
The human drama of the twitter timeline
This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts

The last couple of days have been quite a challenge for me. Today especially, I have been a bit under the weather physically and exhausted mentally. But, I will always make time for Friday Fun Tweets albeit an early edition. Friday Fun Tweets: a collection of tweets from the past week that made me smile, chuckle, laugh out loud or just made me go “HUH?”. Enjoy.

NFL/PRO FOOTBALL

Admit it. You’ve thought exactly the same thing Chris Harris at some point in your life right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hut-One Fish, Hut-Two Fish, Romeo and Juliet – HIKE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At first, I thought Twitter would enhance profiles of athletes and media. After this offseason, it’s doing the same thing for agents too. Very interesting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So this one isn’t exactly about football but if you can compare Mr. Irrelevant with Congress, you have my attention. ((Thought: wonder who would be Mr./Ms. Irrelevant in a Congress draft? All of them maybe?))

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UFL news this week. They are still going to have a season but with 4 teams. The best summation of this news?

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Above, there was Mr. Irrelevant & Congress, now we have Lady Gaga & Oregon. Truth be told though, Dan Greenspan did say later “@ocruscblog came up with the Oregon/Lady Gaga, so credit to him.”. Still funny.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

College football seems like a year-round job for media (just like other sports, I know). This is the first I heard of it interfering with nuptials. Too funny. Best wishes to him & his future wife.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have yet to hear a guy scream like a girl. However, I can imagine many guys around the country feel like this:

GOLF

The PGA championship started today. Tiger was back. But not in old-Tiger form. Is it the end?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To get the full effect of this tweet, click on the link in the tweet:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tiger-Stevie, Stevie-Tiger, will that story ever end? Not if CBS’ Gregg Doyle can help it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Tiger-less tweet isn’t always the easiest to find when he’s playing but here’s one. US Open champ Rory McIlroy apparently hurt his wrist during the 1st round of play today. Best image I could find is on the New York Times website. I think i could take him.

**********************************************************************************************************

SOCCER

I could not pass up some soccer tweets, given that USA-MEXICO played a friendly. Oh and the Premier League is about to start. And La Liga. And Serie A.

Passionate fans out there to be sure. And Twitter can sometimes becoming a venting mechanism for some…..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This one almost won for Tweet of the Week but I won’t do that. Read it & you can see why.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now to USA-MEXICO. It wasn’t exactly a stellar beginning for Jurgen Klinsmann’s coaching debut with the US Men’s National Team. In fact, it was downright ugly the first half. I wasn’t happy when I saw who the starting striker was. This tweet explains my feelings:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the 2nd half, Klinsmann brought someone on as a substitute and I’m still shaking my head about it. Ricardo Clark was on the World Cup team. Highly unimpressive to me than and now. So there is this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Never let it be said though that last night’s game wasn’t fun at least for a little bit. SI’s Grant Wahl has the Klinsy dance link in this tweet. Clink on the link.

**********************************************************************************************************

TWEETS OF THE WEEK

The first runner-up is Colts’ owner Jim Irsay. If you’ve never read his tweets, well, you’re missing out because sometimes they are just OUT THERE. But today, he made sense.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now our WINNER. You can see why the tweet above didn’t win. This one is classic Kurt Warner. Smile.
