Tweet Beat: Birthdays, Chili, and Doron Lamb’s RT Riot


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.

My, my, what a week. Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. Although it seems everyone watched the UK/Western game, only a few brave souls tweeted about it:


Taking notes, La’Rod?

Randall Cobb also had some wise words for his alma mater:


All hail Golden Eyes!

Aaron Boyd sees your #FreeAaronBoyd movement, acknowledges it:


Okay, enough of that. While the football team licked their wounds, Doron Lamb started a Twitter riot, retweeting over 200 tweets in 30 minutes. For our Twitter novices, a retweet is when you send out someone else’s tweet to your followers. Fans will commonly ask for retweets from their favorite players. Ex: “OMG Boogie, u r so fly, i luv u, could u plz RT me??? hehe…I would b so happy!!!” Sometimes players oblige (hopefully not to a tweet like that); Doron was incredibly obliging on Saturday. There were mixed reactions.

Some were excited:

Some were annoyed:

Some tested the limits of what Doron would retweet:

And, some were just…weird:

I love Lamb?

I’m going to go ahead and award Tweet of the Week to Stevie Johnson, who tried to call out his followers for having typos in their bios, and in doing so, made a typo himself. Way to go, Stevie!

Elsewhere, our Cats tweeted about some of the most popular topics of the week: the change in weather and Maryland’s uniforms.

nazr-weather woodson-chili

You’re not the only one, Andre. Seriously, everyone in my Twitter/Facebook/Real life feed was talking about the chili weather this week. Oh, that’s no typo, yes, chili, the delicious autumnal treat. I’d love to know how much chili was consumed in the Kentucky/Tennessee area over the past three days. If it corresponds to the number of “I love fall weather!” tweets/statuses, jeans worn, and sweaters bought, we could have a bean shortage. Oh yeah, I’m guilty of all three of those things. #smdreads

Anyways, where were we? Maryland’s unis, right…


Me too, Stacey.

It was a busy birthday week, with three of our favorite Cats celebrating their special days. Nazr Mohammad partied it up with Antoine Walker. Yes, that’s really ‘Tonie. I had to do a double take as well.


Before we move on to John Wall’s birthday, can we take a minute to admire Nazr’s new twitter icon?


Hide ya kids, hide ya wife.

Everyone and their mother tweeted John Wall birthday greetings, but Patrick Patterson‘s may be my favorite:


Coach Cal’s wife is making Wall some birthday brownies…awww. #lafamilia


Bookie also had a birthday, for which he got several nice tweets, but the Bookie Tweet of the Week goes to:


Sure, this might not be Bookie’s craziest tweet, heck, this one’s even legible. But what does it mean?? Is he excited or upset about this tutor? I need to know!

Elsewhere, Danny Trevathan went on a rant about “netiquette” this week:

trevathan1 trevathan2 trevathan3

If retweeting someone is flirting, Doron Lamb gets around a lot.

Other current Cats were just doing their thing, living the college life:


Sorry ladies, you can’t tie a man like Ryan Harrow down. It’s college.

Know what else is college? Lava lamps:


And thin walls:


Our NFL Cats are gearing up for the first weekend of play, but not before bringing the laughs on Twitter. Jacob Tamme showed he’s got “Dad swag”:


While one kid is seriously going to be sorry if he didn’t wash his hands before leaving the bathroom:


After his karaoke video went viral on KSR, Rex Chapman discovered he can no longer be an innocent karaoke bystander.


In what could be the bromance to end all bromances, Jorts and Tucker Max made a date on Twitter this week: jorts-tucker

Hide ya wives, hide ya girlfriends.

Finally, here is this week’s Tweet That Makes You Go “Awww”: miller-lilcuz

Cutest. Baby. Ever.

I can’t top that. Until next week, RT plz?

    If Randall Cobb tells us to give them time, then I say without a doubt, we listen and give them time.

    2 things:
    I drafted him last in 2 fantasy leagues but never really thought I would play him.
    You guys realize that we are going to need a Liveblog for every Packers game, right?

    5) I was gonna draft him last too. I already had Rodgers, Finley, and Pack defense. But my buddy got him before I could.

    Randall Cobb is the first player born in the 1990’s to score an NFL TD.

    Stevie Johnson has one typo in his tweet? How about the misspellings and grammatical errors too? Horrible unless he was trying to be funny.

    Astonishingly enlightening bless you, There’s no doubt that your trusty audience could quite possibly want way more information along these lines maintain the excellent effort.

    I hate the damn Free Boyd movement because it implies that the coaching staff is holding him back. The truth is that Boyd’s laziness is what has been holding him back. The fact that he feels entitled to play more just illustrates what his problem is-his work ethic and attitude. He wants the glory but isn’t willing to work for it. How about Shane frees himself.
