Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Tweet Beat: Rex wins, Summertime fun, and we all do the Jorts Walk!


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, let’s give credit where credit is due (and I’m not talking about planking). As we have mentioned several times over the past few days, Rex Chapman joined Twitter this week. And he is absolutely winning…seriously, I have a Twitter crush.

Look! He tweets old pics of former Cats!


He tell stories we’ve never heard!


He loves Cal!


Most importantly, he loves KSR!


…swoon. I want to tweet him, but I’m afraid I’ll embarrass myself by using too many emoticons and some really stupid font that dots i’s and j’s with hearts. #TweetBeatCrush

Moving on…

Bookie is back! And he’s just as awesome as ever. In case you didn’t hear Matt Jones try to decipher his tweets on the radio this week, try it yourself:


Who’s ready for summer? Doron Lamb is! This week, he got his toes in flip-flop shape with a pedicure:


Summertime also means cookouts, pool time, and if you’re Patrick Patterson, Stacey Poole and Terrence Jones, trips to water and amusement parks:

Girls, be discreet next time you adjust your suit…Patrick’s watching.

Speaking of discreet, Randall Cobb is not:


Talk about secondhand TMI. But Randall smooths it over with a little love for the ladies:


#goldeneyes #dreamy

Sadly, it seems Danny Trevathan is kind of over love these days:


It’s okay, Danny. Go to Orlando and hang out with DeAndre Liggins…he’s single now!


But you guys just remember these wise words from Morgan Newton:


Over in Wildcat Lodge, Darius Miller decided to show people what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real:


Stacey Poole confessed that he’s changing his number next season:


Know that sick feeling you got when you found out your mom joined Facebook? Well, Tee Martin feels your pain:


This week’s Wayne-Turner‘s-hard-to-read-hashtag: turnertag

Finally, let’s end with everybody’s favorite New Jorter, Josh Harrellson. Jorts took the Big Apple by storm this week, tweeting pics from Times Square, eating hot dogs from street carts, and frolicking in Central Park. He even taught New Yorkers how to do “The Jorts Walk”: jortswalk

What a fitting way to celebrate the Fourth. Until next time, RT plz?

    Sir Rexington. I love to hear that King Rex loves his Ky Blue. For many years I thought he resented us. He was and still is the most popular UK player I have ever seen since the early 80’s and that is no disrespect to the other beloved cats that came after him. The guy sure could play. We still love King Rex. Keep sharing the UK memories!

    #4 & #5…it’s a free site, you can’t always get what you want and if you were attempting sarcasm you missed.

    Great post again Tyler!
