Tweet Beat: The Lake Beard is officially weird

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.

Good evening, KSR readers. Oh, you’re stuck at a company Christmas party? Good thing I saved all of these tweets for you. Sneak into a dark corner and scroll, baby, scroll.

Tod Lanter says what we are all thinking when we see Jon Hood these days:


It’s finals week at UK, which means Brian Long and Kyle Wiltjer probably aren’t the only students who look like this right now:

With that smile, I’m surprised MKG didn’t get a toothbrush endorsement sooner:


Best UK holiday picture ever?

Cal went to Charlotte to watch two of his “sons,” MKG and Eric Bledsoe, square off Wednesday night. And just when I thought I was over the picture Cal posted of the three, MKG had to go and tweet this:

More, Eloy? Oh, stop it! #verklempt

Leave it to Sam Malone to break out the fist pumping reference:

So…did Derek Anderson write a book? Or did he just make his own inspirational poster?

(It’s a book. But the idea of that being a poster amuses me. Maybe Ryan Harrow can hang it in his dorm room.)

Guys, if any of you look like Tom Hardy or Chris Hemsworth and have a crush on Keyla Snowden, you’re in luck…

But, don’t be a:

DeMarcus Cousins has one last thing to say about that incident between him and OJ Mayo earlier this week:

Mark Krebs visited Josh Hopkins on the “Cougar Town” set…odds he left copies of his head shot in random places around the set?

I was happy to see Enes Kanter return to Twitter this week:

We need more random pics, Enes. I’m taking feathered hat, small people on shoulders, trick shot pictures. Don’t let anyone tame the Enes.

Perry, they may keep getting smaller, but you stay the same size. **Matthew McConaughey voice**

Seriously digging Patrick Graffree’s UK hair:

Also digging the end of semester parties, although is there anything more cruel than your friends leaving you to go party when you’re the only one with a final left?

Oh, of course Taylor Wyndham was talking about Forestry…

Congrats to LaRod King, who has been invited to play in The Texas vs the Nation All-Star game:

What’s up with the toilet paper shortage at the UK library?

Note to self: do not sneak up on Josh Clemons.

Alan Cutler retweeted this, which cracks me up. Of course he would retweet something about people sneaking up on other people.

Is there anything Randall Cobb can’t do?

Even that chunk of turf in his helmet is impressive:

You know something is a worldwide phenomenon when Coach Brooks tweets about it:

Who hasn’t had these moments with their parents?

Ah, technology.

Children in UK gear are automatically contenders for “Tweets That Make You Go Aww”:

No Tweet Beat is complete without the “Rich Brooks Retirement Shot of the Day”:

Seriously, these can’t be real:

In the “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie is a little confused about the Mayan Apocalypse:


Okay, good. Until next time, RT plz?

    Hood sports a white trash beard. Hell it’s not even a beard it’s facial hair.

    Mrs. TT (the 8 year old in me giggles at TT) – Tweet Beat is one of my favorites.

    I usually see these tweets prior to Tweet Beat but your comments absolutely crack me up.

    Hilarious – keep it up – you do an awesome job!

    #5 I don’t know if Gordon was impressed, but he was impressing to watch. Sign that kid!! He’s better the Randle or Johnson

    Wonder if your boy Bookie will stay with the team? If he does will he still be on twitter it seems to me like Stoops is the kinda coach who won’t put up with any BS. Just don’t see him trying to be their friend.

    It’s good that Jared Prickett has decided to continue to dress as if it were 1996.

    Jon Hood needs to go full Amish beard. He already looks straight out of Lancaster County.
