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.
It’s GAMEDAY! You know what that means: Gameday tweets!
You better believe Danny Trevathan is ready! Will he debut a new hairstyle tonight?
Earlier in the week, the freshmen on the basketball team took a field trip to Walmart. And, in the grand tradition of Daniel Orton before them, they picked out Halloween costumes and posed in them:
But, by far the best picture of the bunch was Anthony Davis in an odd camo pajamas combo:
Remember that picture of the freshmen Matt posted yesterday? Ryan Harrow also tweeted some pictures of the newbies:
Rajon Rondo made an appearance on campus this week, and yes, some of the players were a little starstruck:
The team also took part in the campus wide water balloon fight. And thank god someone else besides me thought they might need a chaperone:
Although, during the season, I would also prefer the team to walk around with pillows strapped to their bodies to prevent injuries, but that’s just me. #maternalinstinct
Remember last week’s “lemonhead riddle” from Anthony Davis? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has a new one:
The first full week of classes also means the return of the jersey chasers. You know, those girls that stalk the Wildcat Lodge in hopes of snagging a Wildcat to wear on their arm? Well, looks like there is already some lady drama in the Lodge:
In fact, lady drama seems to be all around our current and former Cats:
Those who weren’t having lady drama were watching the MTV VMAs. Seriously, Twitter was crazier than Hal Mumme in an Oakleys store that night.
Darius Miller asked a question many of us asked that night:
Patrick Patterson, always a role model, took the opportunity to use the VMAs as an example to younger people on how to act:
Patterson also shared his backup plan in case the NBA continues to be locked out:
Aaron Boyd has some advice for all you guys who are spending more time with the new Madden game instead of your lady:
And, in typical Aaron Boyd fashion, he follows it up with a introspective tweet that had me #smdreads.
Due to a last-minute Cards smackdown by Perry Stevenson, we have a tie for Tweet of the Week.
Does this top #lakehairdontcare?
Sadly, since there weren’t any good Wayne Turner confusing hashtags this week, I will finish up with an epic nerd hashtag war between our own Fake Gimel and UK/Twitter legend, Rex Chapman. Grab your lightsaber! (Ladies, I apologized for the forthcoming ball humor.)
Ugh. Balls. Until next time, RT plz? GO CATS!
