Tweet Beat: Bring on the Birds with Teeth

ksr-tweetbeat

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.

With Christmas over and our platter of cupcakes finished, it’s time to focus on enemy #1: the vile, vile Ville. Odds are if you live in Kentucky, you know someone who is a Louisville fan. Every town has at least one. Former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen has the particular misfortune of being related to an actual Louisville player:

It’s okay, Jared. We’re here for you.

Ryan Harrow finally gets it:

Brad Calipari, thank you for this:

Sam Malone admits to listening to Taylor Swift from time to time. How many man points will you dock him?

Rex Chapman‘s going streaking! Bring your green hat!


Ah, yes…Christmas is over, which means it’s time for the silly New Year’s Eve glasses. Well, if anyone can sort of pull them off, I guess it’s Jodie Meeks.

meeks2012

Speaking of, is Aaron Boyd trying to virtually flash the three goggles at Louisville?

Aww, Morgan Newton really did grow up in Kentucky:

Alright I’ve heard of shoe addictions, online shopping addictions, twitter addictions…you name it. But iPhone case addictions? That’s a new one.

Looks like his buddy Maxwell Smith is up to no good in California:

Did Wesley Woodyard just tell everyone that Tim Tebow wears Axe?

Good to see Stevie Johnson promoting the Big Blue Brotherhood in the NFL:

Condolences to Doron Lamb, who lost his pet over the holidays. 🙁

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Hollywood and future Hollywood.

Did Moncell Allen imply that Drew Franklin got into a dance battle with the UK dance team?

If so, I demand video.

While many traveled hundreds of miles to see their families for Christmas, Jarrod Polson made the mighty 25 minute trek down Harrodsburg Road (okay, maybe 30 minutes if he took Nicholasville Rd/127…it’s hard to resist that new Firehouse Subs):

Carrabba’s.

Winston Guy has a great quote for those of you making losing weight one of your New Year’s Resolutions:

It certainly made me put down the peanut brittle.

Maybe it would help Josh Hopkins defeat Mr. Backfat?

Welcome to your mid-20’s, Brandon:

Nazr Mohammad disapproves of your fake hand washing, and no, he will not shake your hand.

Note to self: do not invite Perry Stevenson to wedding planning sessions.

This week’s “Tweet that Makes You Go Aww” goes to Twany Beckham, who took time over the holidays to dance with his grandmother:

What a sweet young man.

In this week’s “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie wants you to know that just because he doesn’t have time to come see you doesn’t mean he doesn’t care? I think?

Here’s hoping the New Year brings you Wildcat victory tweets and the mildest hangover possible. Until then, RT plz?

    Is that Brad Calipari in the photo with Wiltjer? Isn’t he supposed to be around 14~15 years of age? The kid in the photo looks like he’s six.
