Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Tweet Beat: SuperSocks

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.

We have to start with this fish that Alex Poythress caught:

Looks like the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife may have a new spokesman.

Hey Alex, Rich Brooks raises you a Russian rainbow trout:

It’s very thick.

While Alex and Papa Brooks like to catch fish, Nerlens just likes to watch them:

This video is actually really soothing and beautiful. Also, if it wasn’t clear before now, the early 90’s are back:

All Nerlens needs is some overalls (only one strap fastened, of course), a bucket hat and some pogs, and he’s set.

Dakari Johnson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were teammates at St. Patrick’s for one season, during which they must have shared training techniques. Back in June, MKG posted a video of himself running up a mudhill, and earlier this week, Dakari posted a very similar video of himself running up a sand dune.

St. Patrick’s must be raising these boys right.

Erik Korem’s high performance program even has its own clothing line. Ladies and gents, high performance recovery tights, as modeled by the UK specialists:

Ain’t no shame in that.

You know how some people use back-to-school time as an excuse to wear all their new sweaters and outerwear despite it still being 90 degrees outside? Tod Lanter is like that, but with soup:

Too hot for soup! (Unless it’s gazpacho.)

Nerlens Noel is that guy asking for advice on his Fantasy Football draft on Twitter:

Randall Cobb.

Riddle me this, riddle me that…what does Marcus Lee want for his birthday?

Is it bigger than a bread box? I’m going with a National Championship.

(Ten bucks says it’s love.)

Check out UK’s new walk-on EJ Floreal and Brad Calipari hooping at the Joe Craft Center last week:

Brad’s got pretty good moves…any chance he walks on at UK in a few years?

I am a fan of corny jokes, therefore this made me laugh:

Nothing wrong with a little gentle humor.

Corey Peters got his training camp package from Mark Stoops this week:

That’s not just false, it’s Za’false.

Deep thoughts, from Danny Trevathan:

So, they definitely didn’t have pool parties like this at Davidson:

This week’s “Tweet That Makes You Go Aww” is a tie between Derek Anderson and his cute kid:

…and Erik Daniels’ son playing peewee football:

Tiny children playing football ranks up there with the cutest things in the world, along with videos of different species of animals being friends on YouTube. I mean, what do a potbelly pig and a duck have in common? Nothing! But for some reason, they’re still cuddling in the barnyard. Amirite, Chris Tomlin?

TWEET OF THE WEEK: Doron Lamb

D.Lamb should win Socks of the Year for this pair:

THE SOCKS HAVE CAPES ON THEM, Y’ALL. Game over.

Until next time, RT plz?

    I hope he’s gotten his fishing license. That would be a terrible scandal.
