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.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m so happy you decided to spend your romantic evening with us. Whether you love or loathe the holiday, it makes for some awesome tweets. Example A:
Pimp Daddy wants to say Happy Valentine’s day to all my sweeties. I just LOVE you all <3 twitter.com/Enes_Kanter/st…
— Enes Kanter (@Enes_Kanter) February 14, 2013
That picture is too small to do this justice. One more time:
Never change, Enes. Never, ever, ever change.
Still don’t have a Valentine? Patrick Towles is looking:
To all of the beautiful women who have made the gracious decision to follow me: if you are looking… I would LOVE to be your Valentine #214

Jorts is such a ladies’ man:
Happy valentines day to everyone! Wish I could send all the lovely ladies that follow me flowers!!
— Josh Harrellson (@BigJorts55) February 14, 2013
Nothing says romance like a sexy selfie, right Patrick Graffree?
See, for me, this would totally be worth it:
I hear Fazoli’s is offering free pasta for a year to couples who get engaged today in store. Has anyone proposed yet?? #happyvalentinesday
— Randall Cobb (@rcobb18) February 14, 2013
Meet you there, Randall?
Morgan Newton‘s ready get his fancy grub on:
Valentines day is a good day to go to all the over priced restaurants you can’t justify spending money on any other night.

LaRod King doesn’t think Valentine’s Day is for everyone:
Happy valentines day to the women who deserve it and happy Thursday to the others
— La’Rod King (@Kingof_UK) February 14, 2013
Awh! Valentine’s Day usually annoys me, but kids make it somewhat tolerable. Case in point: Rex Chapman and his daughter.

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and a Twany Beckham Oreo nightcap:
Teammate Alex Poythress appears to have picked up the habit as well:
I’ve gotta go with Tod Lanter, this is certifiably creepy:
Speaking of Mr. Lanter, tweets like this (and biceps like his) are why I love him:
Some of these girls walkin around campus look like they fell into a bag of doritos. I’ve heard its free tan week & all, but its still Feb…
— Tod Lanter (@tod_lanterIII) February 8, 2013
Also, WTF is “Free Tan Week”??
I love blizzards. I’m hearing up to 2 feet of snow back in Boston this weekend. Closest I’ll get to that in Lex is Dairy Queen
— Sam Malone (@SamMaloneuk13) February 6, 2013
Perry, I wholeheartedly agree:
Umm.. Im never going on a Carnival cruise. Anyone else see that stranded ship??
— Perry Stevenson (@PSteve2122) February 14, 2013
If there is a hell worse than being stuck in a confined space that smells so much like crap that people are resorting to pooping in bags, then I don’t want to know.
The perks of being tall?
Why did the flight attendant just give me one of those little bottles of Jack Daniels just for being tall

The beautiful Keyla Snowden gussied up for the red carpet this week to attend the Grammys:

Come on students, can’t Josh Clemons get a little recognition??

Great wording by the Great Larry Warford:
Why is my hearing superb right before I go to sleep?? If an ant farted last night I would’ve heard it…

— Rich Brooks (@UKcoachbrooks) February 6, 2013
I’m still up
— Doron Lamb (@DLamb20) February 14, 2013
Doron had a bit of a Twitter fail over the weekend, accidentally retweeting something he probably shouldn’t have. Thank you to â€@WZH_07 for taking the screenshot of it while I was out of town. And yes, it has been edited.
TWEET OF THE WEEK: This has to go to Nerlens Noel, who tore his ACL against Florida on Tuesday. Despite the cloud of gloom that settled over the Bluegrass, Nerlens showed us once again how amazing he is with this optimistic message to his fans:
Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback!I love you all and can’t thank y’all enough for the prayers.
— Nerlens Noel (@NerlensNoel3) February 13, 2013
Love you big guy. Until next time, RT plz?
