Tweet Beat: Let the Madness begin

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.

First thing’s first. Let’s give a Big Blue Nation welcome to the newest member of the fam, James Young:

James got a lot of congratulatory tweets today, but this is my favorite

You’re next, buddy.

Madness is almost here. Are you ready? Alex Poythress doesn’t think so:

Just in case you need another hint as to what Archie Goodwin will come out to tomorrow night:

The only people more excited than the players (aside from us)? The guys who get to do this next year:

Speaking of the Harrison Twins

You said it, MKG.

Ladies, put on the Carmex before heading over the Lodge:

Archie Goodwin’s tattoos were the talk of media day, ranging from the “basketball clown” to these two new drama masks representing the good times and the bad, which apparently both require smoking:

A few months from now, I’m pretty sure this lady will know where Willie Cauley-Stein plays.

Sign #34,005 of the apocalypse:

Sign #4,201 that life is not fair: this tweet from Perry Stevenson.

Ron Mercer‘s ready:

It also makes me stupid happy that Andrew Harrison retweeted this. #LaFamilia

Speaking of La Familia, add Derek Anderson to the list of alums in the house tomorrow night:

This week in the “Wild and Wacky World of Enes,” we learned Enes’ plan for retirement:

If that doesn’t work, he could always make it as a furniture model:

“The Price is Right” did just hire its first male model. Just saying…

I find it funny that MKG calls Anthony Davis his “lil bro” even though Davis is both older and taller than him:

More adorableness:

Doug Harrellson got married!

Honestly, I’d be a little concerned if he didn’t wear denim. Regardless, that kid in the striped shirt does not look excited.

But when will Jorts find his Daisy Duke?

I never thought Patrick Patterson and Snooki would have anything in common, alas:

Is it sad that I’m a little happy that even a bunch of millionaires had to do a cheesy team building exercise?

Amen, Rex Chapman:

Patrick, don’t you know the first rule of blackjack?! Well, besides “Always double down on 11” and “Always split aces and 8s,” NO USING YOUR PHONE AT THE TABLE!


Welcome back to the Bluegrass, Papa Brooks:

When you’re done with your nostalgia, Patrick Towles is ready to make you long for brighter days ahead…

With his performance on the field fading, Oh Boyd has reverted back to taking artsy twitpics:

Some may think Jared Lorenzen goes over the line with his tweets on UK football, but this one is spot on:

This basically sums up the season for me:

Can we get that printed on a t-shirt?

I think you guys are going to have a lot of thoughts on this tweet from Winston Guy:

Let it out…this is a safe place.

Thankfully, in this week’s “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie confirms that his Twitter account was indeed hacked. Rest assured, he is not a fan of Hitler.

Phew. Until next time, RT plz?

    Wow at Goodwin’s tattoo. Is that a rolled up wad of $100’s in the shape of a clown masks, smoking a blunt? Just wow. The NCAA needs to amend the rule on players not being able to have advisors to say, “except as to their tattoo choices.” Good thing he’ll have that first-round cash in a year to laser that jazz off his arm.
