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.
No, you’re not seeing things. Tweet Beat has made a triumphant return after a two-week hiatus. What can I say? Blame the Pilgrims, the Indians, and whoever scheduled the St. John’s game. Don’t they know Thursday nights are sacred?!
We’ve got a lot to cover, so crack those knuckles and get ready to scroll!
Let me take you back…to a time when President Obama was in the White House, North Carolina was the number one team in the country, and the Kentucky football team celebrated its first win over Tennessee in 26 years. Wait, that was less than two weeks ago? Well, it still feels FANTASTIC, right, Stuart Hines?
The hero of the game, Matt Roark, celebrated the win and the end of No-Shave November with some…questionable facial hair.
Seriously, what is that? A mutton chop/fu manchu combo?
While Tweet Beat was sleeping, it looks like someone finally fed Josh Clemons:
And in case you were wondering, Winston Guy would do it all over again.
What would you do if you opened your door to find Danny Trevathan singing Christmas carols?
Speaking of Christmas, Terrence Jones loves Christmas movies and doesn’t care who knows:
I feel like I could dedicate a whole Tweet Beat to tweets about the North Carolina/Kentucky game, but this summary will have to suffice:
Ramon Harris took his daughter to the game, and they were seriously adorable:
Anthony Davis wasn’t the only Cat to get his picture taken with Ashley that day:
Even Rex Chapman loves a good Oscar Combs sighting:
Famous people went to the game! Like Walter McCarty and Josh Hopkins!
Kyle Wiltjer celebrated the win by letting his mom push him around in a shopping cart at Walmart.
There’s a weird Freudian reference in there somewhere about a baby stroller, but my love for Wiltjer’s hook shot won’t let me go there. #rufio
If possible, Anthony Davis‘ big block in the game made him even more of a star on campus. He’s even posing for pictures during class:
Davis also mentioned paintball on Twitter this week, and Lord knows you can’t make a paintball reference on Twitter without Nazr Mohammad getting involved:
Elsewhere in the Lodge, Jon Hood is stressing over big decisions:
Alright, who stole Brian Long‘s phone charger??
Part of me is so comforted that in these tough times, Ryan Harrow is still a kid at heart:
Hey ladies, hook Brandon up with a nice spa rec:
Remember MKG’s monster dunk against Portland? Yeah, King James saw it, too.
Young Bobby Perry (complete with afro) has an awesome “bitch please” stare:
I had high expectations when I found Shagari Alleyne‘s Twitter account and I have yet to be disappointed.
Smooth feels your pain, Shaggy.
Hey Wesley, the answer to your question is YES.
Meanwhile, Wayne Turner asks a question I often ask myself.
Braxton Kelley sees you eating out of the Chinese takeout box, and he disapproves.
Look, it’s Mark Krebs and Little Mark Krebs!
Aww, our Jorts is all grown up. Good luck in the Big Apple, Josh!
I am still very concerned about Rajon Rondo‘s latest Twitpic:
And if he weren’t dreamy enough, Randall Cobb now wants to learn how to play the piano. Single women of Green Bay, beware!
Like me, Perry Stevenson‘s been watching too much TV lately.
Dats mula crazy. Until next time (promise), RT plz?
