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.
Yesterday was an exciting day around these parts; by rallying our Big Blue wagons around mutual hate for all things Cardinal, we created quite possibly the most successful #LouisvilleHateDay in KSR history. While the ultimate reward for our work would be a Wildcat victory, seeing some of your favorite Cats getting in on the fun was pretty awesome:
Although he didn’t tweet about it yesterday, Bookie clearly embraces the Cardinal hate:
As always, Kige put his special spin on the day, likening Louisville to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe in Mister Rodger’s Neighborhood.
Does that make Will Stein Prince Tuesday?
How can you talk about UK Football without mentioning Randall Cobb? After his thrilling debut last Thursday, Golden Eyes made a trip to Lexington for the Central Michigan game, causing every man, woman, and child in the stadium to swoon:
But, nobody’s perfect. Cobb slept through breakfast with Morgan Netwon the next morning.
Wesley Woodyard still thinks he’s a ******* beast.
Even though we’ve already shared it on the site, I can’t help but post Jarrod Polson‘s tweet to Lebron about losing his number.
Hopefully, Boogie and Bledsoe had recovered from John Wall’s epic birthday bash earlier in the week:
If you’re asking where Brandon Knight was during all this, he was too busy hanging out with his friends on Hollywood Boulevard:
After King James left town, the current Cats returned to reality…which, you know, includes girls and stuff.
Doron Lamb has sage advice for his friends in this age of camera phones, Facebook, and Twitter:
Stacey Poole had an unfortunate run in with a meter maid:
Kyle Wiltjer made me feel really, really old:
In the wake of yesterday’s line beard mockery, I am concerned about Jon Hood‘s facial hair.
Time for an intervention?
Anthony Davis has discovered the bizarre fashion habits of Southern college students, who will wear shorts with sweaters and flip flops in 30-degree weather.
Terrence Jones shared a #fattweet:
So did Patrick Patterson:
Mmmm…fried cardinal–I mean chicken….
How many man points did Perry Stevenson lose by using this Hello Kitty fan?
One of the funniest news stories of the week was the alleged Sarah Palin/Glen Rice hookup at the Great Alaskan shootout back in the 1980’s. And who better to mock it than our own King Rex, in this edition’s Retweet of the Week:
Hey Jay Bilas! We love you (even though you’re a Dukie), but don’t diss brown suits. Ever. Right, Dick Vitale?
The oddest Twitter “conversation” this week belongs to Daniel Orton and Ramon Harris:
That’s almost as funny as Winston Guy‘s take down of Maxwell Smith:
Guy also let us know that Rondo‘s still in the house!
He will step on you with those Big Blue boots.
Until next time, RT plz? Go Cats.
