Tweet Beat: Home for the Holidays


As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.

It’s Christmastime here at the KSR compound, and we’ve already got the Duraflame yule log burning. While you’ve been snacking on sweets at the office, your favorite Cats spent this week spreading holiday cheer:


With Loyola out of the way, the Cats are now on their way home for the holidays. Sam Malone is so excited and he just can’t hide it:

Judging by this picture taken after the game, I’m guessing that centaurs and turtles really do get along:

The holidays also mean the end of the semester, which means it’s time to say goodbye to Stacey Poole. Cue the Boyz II Men music, please…

Twany Beckham may have gotten his first start on Saturday, but he was still the victim of a pretty vicious dunk in practice, which resulted in him being given the Helmet Award:

Did Marquis Teague find a lucky lady under the mistletoe?

CBSSports’ Jeff Goodman thinks he’s got us all figured out:

…honestly, he kind of does.

Even Morgan Newton had a problem with Dan Dakich’s color commentary on Tuesday:

Former Kentucky QB Mike Hartline gave his old teammate Matt Roark a shout out on Twitter this week, further proving that all Kentucky football fans are still reveling in the victory over Tennessee (myself included).

Future Cat Alex Poythress continues an impressive campaign for 2012-2013 fan favorite with this inspirational tweet:

Nobody’s picking you last anymore, fam.

You think you’ve had a bad week? Try being Sam Malone. Malone tore his ACL against UT-Chattanooga on Saturday, and will be out for the remainder of the season. That isn’t keeping the witty walk-on down, though:

Yes, Bobby Perry, we are jealous:

Lots of people tweeted Playboy model Megan Dillis after she shared her experience at the Kentucky/Indiana game (looking at you, BTI), but my favorite tweet had to be from Walter McCarty, who simply sent her his music video of his new song “Emotionally.”

Maxwell Smith proves that teenagers’ fascination with street signs with their names on them still lives on:

Despite months of experience deciphering tweets, I have no clue what Aaron Boyd is talking about. Help? When did “thirsty” start meaning something other than “thirsty”?

Another “thirsty” sighting, courtesy of Ryan Harrow:

You’re about to go spend lots and lots of time with family. You’ll probably have a conversation similar to the one Mark Krebs recently had with his niece:

At the Indianapolis Colts’ Christmas party, which took place at a bowling alley (my how the mighty have fallen), Jacob Tamme‘s friend and Colts’ video assistant Matt Carlson hit a ridiculous trick shot.

If you were unable to attend the Mt. Sterling Christmas Parade, then you missed getting to see Winston Guy and his fantastic dreads in a black convertible Camaro. #random

You may love being home for the holidays, but Andre Woodson hates it:

Tee Martin‘s son tried a new game recently called “Hantis“…which looks like what we used to do to play beer pong in college when we didn’t have one long table:

Can anyone fill us in on the wonder that is Hantis?

I’m glad that Patrick Patterson and I have the same philosophy about Christmas shopping:

Papa Brooks is settling into his new home in Oregon, where his new office looks just a little different than his old one:

There were a lot of contenders for this week’s “Tweet that Makes You Go Aww,” but I have to give it to Perry Stevenson, who tweeted this adorable picture of his baby cousin: prarie-cuz

Seriously, that child is so cute it makes my ovaries ache.

Bookie’s back in New Orleans for the break, and in the “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” he tells us about a special girl in his life:

And with that, I wish you Merry Christmas, KSR readers. Love you all. #noEltonJohn

Until next time, RT plz?

    Shame on you Ms. Tyler Thompson for not saying “CHRISTMAS.” Whether you like it or not, CHRISTMAS is real, it’s the birth of our Lord and Saviour and you politically correct people make me want to puke. At any rate, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family and GOD BLESS.

    #5 Hey , don’t you know I’m the ******* around here. Christmas is real, but it’s not “the birth of our Lord and Saviour” Lol

    Jesus was NOT born on December 25th you bloody morons. So Merry ****** Christmas, I hope Santa brings you a brain.

    this has nothing to do with anything, but listening to doug gottlieb pisses me off even more than listening to matt jones. i’ve just now realized that i’m capable of such profound emotions.

    I really wish you would kill yourself. It is the people like you that give us, Kentucky fans bad names. You say disrespectful and unintelligent things constantly. The fact of the matter is, no one knows what day Jesus, our lord and savior was born on, thus we have picked December 25th to be the “symbolic day” to mark his birth. I love how you hide behind your screen name and IP address, you wouldnt dare say anything like this to my face or to anyone else, please…. Feel free to kill yourself. You’re truly a coward and a terrible person…. But most of all, you’re pathetic. G’day.

    I wasn’t born on December 25. That day was picked for my birthday because it coincided with a Roman pagan holiday to the god Saturn and the Roman emperor was trying to make it easier to convert his people to Christianity. I was probably born in April. Since I was Jewish I wish everyone a Happy Hanukah.

    Well done. As for HANTIS, I tried it myself a week ago. Pretty fun, odd combination of four square, ping pong. Once you get going going, it’s a blast. If you having seen the website, check it–they do some ridiculous stuff. They might be smoking something to be that good.

    Hantis is basically playing tennis with your hands instead of a racquet…pretty fun though

    Hantis was invented by several guys from Scott County several years ago.
