Tweet Beat: Throwback (Twany) Thursday

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.

Happy Throwback Thursday, otherwise known to Marshall Henderson as the day after #whitegirlwednesday! MVTweeter of the team, Twany Beckham, posted several “TBT” gems while recovering from back surgery earlier this week, including this picture of him and Shaq:

Twany! You’re smiling in a picture! I didn’t think it was possible. He also put up this one (of him putting on deodorant?) from “prep school”:

And, of course, because it’s Twany, one for the ladies:

Kyle Wiltjer also got in on the fun, posting a shot of him, Jarrod Polson, Anthony Davis and others putting up three goggles and this adorable childhood picture that earns him this week’s “Tweet That Makes You Go Aww”:

Look how tiny his hands are!

Why am I not surprised Jon Hood watches “Finding Bigfoot”?

Also Tod, it’s totally the latter. Don’t you know Bigfoot was spotted wandering in the woods by Kentucky Lake three years ago?

I wrote a lengthy piece last night on how beautiful Oxford was. Brian Long agrees, at least when it comes to the hotel rooms:

I’m guessing they had BET.

Brian, you’re from up north. Shouldn’t you be used to the snow or has the South made you soft?

Can someone tell me what the hell Ramel “Smooth” Bradley is hooked up to?

Is that a massaging machine? If so, where do I get one?

Rex Chapman was not impressed with Marshall Henderson:

Walter McCarty and Nazr Mohammad toasted to the Cats’ win over Ole Miss on Twitter with two very different but similar looking drinks:

Other former Cats put in their two cents on the victory:

And then here comes Doron “Who Up” Lamb to remind us what was.


Prairie Dog Stevenson already won Twitter with his tweet about Billy Gillispie attending the Texas A&M/UK game on Saturday, but this picture of autographs from the kids he teaches is also pretty great:

You know it’s “golf time” when Ron Mercer posts a selfie in his UK golf outfit!

Watch out Drew Franklin, Anthony Davis is moving in on your girl:

Jacob Tamme added a nice piece of art to his collection this week:

I’ve spent way too long trying to figure out if this is actually Winston Guy dancing or someone famous. I’m sure those of you younger and hipper than me will let me know. Regardless, Winston typing out the lyrics to “Bootylicious” makes me laugh.

What say you, KSR readers?

To help, here is what I consider Landon‘s best tweet of the week:

And Patrick‘s:

I’ve gotta go with Landon. Sorry, Patrick. Use it for fuel for next week.

Bah! Who is that and what has he done with our bearded warrior Taylor Wyndham?!

Weep not for the memories…

It’s been a rainy snowy week in Lex, which means…leggings and rain boots, right Landon?

Patrick Graffree debuted a new haircut this week. First the Brow, then the Flat Top, now the Juice?

You know how I know Jacob Tamme is a true UK fan? This:

What do you do when you’re retired and live in California? Apparently you start going to polo matches if you’re Rich Brooks:

Beware of the steaming divot, Papa!

Oh Boyd, I hope your granny isn’t on Twitter:

Josh Teater had a huge week, coming in second in the Farmers Insurance Open, but it’s nice to know that people keep him in perspective:

Doron Lamb has become the go-to person on Twitter for advice on life, love, and how to take pictures of your friends passed out without them knowing. Now, he is adding “nutritionist” to that list:

Vitamin C is very important.

Finally, I’m kind of over Bookie, aren’t you? Instead, we’re going to finish each week up with the “Tweet of the Week.” The inaugural honor goes to Patrick Patterson, who posted this picture of his favorite way to relax:

Pickles, Patrick? Really? If you start wearing animal prints, I’m going to have to nickname you Snooki.

Until next time, RT plz?

    Tyler, that haircut isn’t called the Juice. Juice is an old movie Tupac starred in. Think it came out in 1992. The guy in the pic is one of the actors.

    #2 is correct. That pic in Graffree’s tweet is Steel from the movie Juice. Juice haha dang I’m getting old.

    I think Winston Guy is dancing with a wax figure of Beyonce.

    Seriously, how could you look at that picture as long as you say and not be able to tell that that’s a wax figure?

    Tired of Bookie? Have been. Tired of the stadium frame? Good god. Tired of the over used gifs all of the sudden? Yes! Tired of Tweet Beat? Hell no.

    Do NOT drink Snapple. Ever.

    There’s absolutely no apple in Snapple. That’s why they call it juicy drink. They’re not allowed to call it apple juice. It’s the worst.

    Patrick, if you add any ice cream to that mix, I’m going to worry that’s your pregs. 🙂
