Tweet Beat: Even Derby horses have Twitter now

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.

I always knew Jarrod Polson was a magician:

Check out those hops!

I’d like to thank Josh Hopkins for bringing it to my attention that one of the Derby horses, Orb, has a Twitter account:

Some of Orb’s tweets so far:

Sigh. I feel old.

Papa Brooks, Tod Lanter sees you and your giant fish:

And raises you some…spots and gills?

Speaking of Tod, it’s finals week at UK, which means all the students are HOPPED UP ON MOUNTAIN DEW!

Just don’t do caffeine pills and go all Jesse Spano on us, kids:

Jon Hood seems really hyped about this chicken salad:

I fully support the “just chicken salad” movement. Pecans, grapes, pineapples and water chestnuts are great, but chicken salad is supposed to be salty and delicious. Don’t go confusing my palette with sweet things like grapes. Also, if your chicken salad DOES have grapes in it, please list that in the description or have the decency to tell me when I order it.

I’ll get off my soap box now.

If you think Hood and I are OCD about our chicken salad, just check out Mark Krebs and his ice water angst:

I’m not really sure what Twany Beckham was doing before or after this picture, but even if it was just walking around Lexington in a suit and tie, spinning a basketball while wearing his championship ring, then it definitely fits his criteria for a great time:

Twany on his suit and tie…

Archie Goodwin has backed off the Twitter a little bit lately, but still sent out this tweet yesterday:

Funny story. A while back, being the late 20-something that I am, I had no idea what the term “ratchet” meant, so I texted KSR’s “Kids These Days” correspondent, Wilder Treadway, to find out. According to WilderDictionary (copyright that now, young one), ratchet is an adjective used “to describe looking or acting a mess.”


Is Twany Beckham on a diet? I haven’t seen a soft-serve nightcap in weeks:

I do love how he pointed out that his water was “room temp.”

Leave it to Willie Hippie-Stein to ponder the great mysteries of life:

In case you were wondering how Boston is faring after the Marathon bombings, Sam Malone stopped by Boylston Street to check in on the memorial:

Wow. #BostonStrong

Before the flat top or the unibrow was the afro:

Eloy Vargas‘ submission for “Throwback Thursday” (#tbt) is classic:

Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 3.27.26 PM

1) Eloy is so skinny!!
2) His neck is insanely long
3) His mamma looks like she will eff you up if you touch her baby boy

Before you start feeling too sorry for Josh Harrellson because he’s no longer in the league, just look at this picture:

Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 3.37.40 PM

I think Jorts is doing just fine, even if he’s not wearing jorts.

I’m sorry, to me, Nazr Mohammad already is the Most Interesting Man in the World:

Does this mean we can expect MKG in a “Funny or Die” video soon? Please??

Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 3.45.23 PM

Josh Clemons is finally healthy and back in the weight room, with some help from his dad, “Big Clem”:

Any chance Big Clem has some extra eligibility left?


Come on, Matt Smith. Drew Franklin would just call this a regular Saturday night:

Oh Boyd had a pretty depressing week, from the looks of it:

Other tweets this week:

“I’m so stranded.”
Maybe because that’s you went on a walk without knowing where you were going…
“is this darkness of the dawn?”
Obviously still stranded…
“midnight jog”
That’s not even safe!

Last week, we told you about the #KickinIt4Kelly movement and its support from the UK football team and Nerlens Noel. Even 2013 football commit Melvin Lewis is doing his part, posting this picture on Twitter earlier today:

Friends, get ready to see A LOT of Ashley Judd. She’s been cast as one of the supporting characters in “Divergent,” another young adult dystopian trilogy being turned into a movie. It’s essentially the next “Hunger Games.”

John Wall doesn’t get personal a lot on Twitter, or with the media in general, but when he does, it’s very touching. Check out this picture of John and his late father:

Tiny John Wall is too much for me to handle… #verklempt

Also adorable? This picture of Ramel Bradley’s daughter: Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 3.47.57 PM

That’s a #TweetThatMakesYouGoAww right there.

Bookie‘s been pretty quiet lately, but he did tweet out his summer plans earlier this week:

I think he meant “MINE!!”. But who knows, maybe he will actually be working in a mine. You never know.

TWEET OF THE WEEK: ? 8843bc64b33a11e2a58222000a1fb810_7

This picture of a Kentucky sports figure was posted on Instagram this week. Who is it?? I’ll reveal the answer in tonight’s night post.

Until next time, RT plz?
