As this column reaches the end of its third semester of existence, I have to ask myself: How the hell do I still have anything to say? And then, of course, I have to laugh because I am obviously unstoppable. When I feel as if I have already twinkled my little Twitter toes in every topic, something new comes up and I feel as fresh as a new Twitter background full of kitty faces.
I’ve been counting down the days until I can kiss this semester goodbye and kick it out the door. But, a little Twitter bird fluttered around my head and whispered in my ear that I need to do something before I plant a big sloppy kiss on the Fall 2010 semester. The birdy said “Sports,” and I said, “WTF? Do you not know me at all? I hate most sports.” And then the birdy said “Exactly,” and flapped off.
When this happened, I had not started drinking for the day yet, so I know it wasn’t a hallucination. That little critter was right – why have I never swam in the largest pool that I will never understand? I’m diving in, and who better to help an Internet nerd like myself make some sense of some sports crap than the players and coaches themselves? God, do I love Twitter.
@CuatroTres: Got dance class… Got that daftpunk on #greatalbum bout to get it #nohomo!!!
Definitely #nohomo. Can’t have those crazy queers playing that football.
@CJ_goes_Hamm: #3wordsaftersex go to sleep!
Aw, yay. Breaking the stereotype that it is usually just the women who want to sleep after sex. I think my three words would be “Make me food,” or “Can you leave?” Aren’t gender roles fun?
@TUcoachAlGolden: We need all our fans to attend our bowl game once the game is announced on Sunday. Team banquet on December 11th. Fans welcome.
Yawn.com. Just like our girl President Ann Weaver Hart isn’t tweeting for @TempleUniv, I seriously doubt coach Al Golden is actually tweeting. So, PR person, whoever you are, why are you so incredibly boring? Your team is going buck wild on Twitter. I think you can spice it up a little bit.
@KhalifW05: Sorry twitter I been in my Student athlete bag all day!! How y’all doin?
Aw, snap. I’ve been in my failing journalism student bag all day! Sup, twits?
@whoisjoejones26: call of duty….
Quick question: Since most student athletes only wear some sort of Temple sports apparel to class, do you also wear Temple athletic gear when playing dorky and equally cult-like video games? Just wondering.
Is SMH a sport? If it is, I am the MVP.
