Tweet Beat: Meet Tod Lanter

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.

Long time no see! Tweet Beat was on hiatus last week while the Cats beat Long Morning Northwood, but just because we took a break doesn’t mean the Twitter-verse did.

First off, the newest Cat, Tod Lanter, has some things to say:

By now you know that Lanter is the son of Bo Lanter, a former walk-on at Kentucky. But did you know that the two like to dress up in suits and take Instagram pics in parking lots?

Nice shades, Tod. Next time, try a different colored shirt…it’s hard to match blacks.

One of the most touching moments of the week was Lane Goodwin’s father, George, sitting on the team’s bench during the exhibition game against Transy. Nerlens Noel, who reached out to Lane before his death, reminded us once again why we love him so much:

The Cats have landed in Brooklyn! On the eve of our opening game, I think Willie Cauley-Stein says it best:

Tod Lanter has seen a lot of NYC action movies:

Apparently, #LakeHairDoesCare about brake tapping:

…and spelling:

Stay awake, Julius!

It’s time for “Did You Know” with Perry Stevenson!

Perry also describes one of my biggest pet peeves EVER:

Punctuality automatically gives you cool points in my book.

Little known fact: Nazr Mohammad is a pretty decent barber.

Erik Daniels feeling old makes me feel old:

Also old? The fact that Erik not only has a VCR, but wants to get it fixed:

It’s official: Patrick Patterson has joined Doron Lamb on #teampedi.

Hey, aspiring screenwriters: PPat also needs your help.

Signs Jorts is single and ready to mingle: taking shirtless Instagram self-portraits in bed.

Pfft, who doesn’t have a Randall Cobb room in their house?

When he’s not snapping the ball to one of UK’s three QBs, Matt Smith hunts squirrels.

My dog would be so proud.

In Lifestyles of the Rich and Retired, we get a sneak peek at Papa Brooks’ new pool:

Rich, if you ever need a pool girl, give me a call.

This week’s “Tweets that Makes You Go Aww” go to Derek Anderson, who took us on a tour of the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas with his son:


I’m not sure what’s scarier: that shark or Derek’s Star Wars tunic.

Okay, now I’m just jealous.

Finally, Oh Boyd may have deleted this tweet about Obama’s victory, but Tweet Beat is always watching:

Until next time, RT plz?

    Thank goodness Romney didn’t win — because is Oh Boyd had tweeted that about Ann I might have had to give up Tweet Beat forever.

    Hearing harrow is getting IV’s and should play. They will try to sit mays. Best case he plays spot minutes.

    From CNN/SI…according to Pete Thamel-toe, our Boys In Blue are going to be this year’s biggest flop! Yet they keep giving this guy a paycheck–silly rabbits. Cal.Dont.Flop.
    Kentucky: Simply put, Kentucky is ranked way too high. Sure, the Wildcats have a bevy of talented newcomers. But star freshman center Nerlens Noel is light years from Anthony Davis, especially on offense. Transfer point guard Ryan Harrow was a questionable decision maker at NC State. The high-grade talent just isn’t there. Expect the Wildcats to be a No. 4 or No. 5 seed. As for next year? Well, that’s a different story.

    The only story that matters in UK Land right now is PETRINO WANTS UK, UK NEEDS TO HIRE PETRINO. Publish this repeatedly, everywhere, until Mitch hires Petrino. Good God, promise him all of the “administrative assistants” he wants, just hire him and give me SOMETHING to watch worth the price of these damn season tickets that I will not cancel for some asinine reason!

    Noel should get a thumbs up shaved into the back of his head

    Noel should get “Petrino” shaved into the back, front, side, and top of his head.

    Sooo papa brooks is filling the pool in and then covering it in grass? Is he trying to create a swamp for a little duck hunting or something??

    Also, Atlantis is an outstanding place. So much fun. Met Patrick Ewing in the casino. Regardless, have fun Anderson family!

    I know this comment is just as polarizing as the Presidential Election but I’m going to say it anyway….anyone that wants Petrino to come to UK is a moron. MORON. if he came to UK he would leave our program in 3 years and our program would be in shambles. I am thankful that educated people are in charge of our search for a head coach. in closing, let me reiterate…MORON.

    @19 Really? Where do you think the program is now? We’re below shambles.

    @20 Cobb isn’t wearing a Louisville hat, I beleive Davis wore a shirt with the same logo in an interview once. I think it is a popular brand in Chicago.
