Tweet Beat: Coach Cal's mums, Ron Mercer's cell phone holster, and Enes' wacky hat

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonalmost 9 years


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. A lots has gone down since we last met for our Thursday night ritual: Media Day, Big Blue Madness, what I am dubbing "The Craziest Wednesday Ever," culminating with the states favorite new TV show, All Access: Kentucky. There's been so much happening that some of your favorite basketball players felt the need to shake things up with new Twitter avatars. Ladies and gentlemen...your University of Kentucky Wiiiiiiiildcaaaaatsss! (Ryan Harrow doesn't have a Twitter account anymore, which is seriously a crying shame.) How did they handle the first week of the season? Let's find out: Can I get an "Amen"? Julius Mays appreciate this, y'all: Archie doesn't purr, he burrs. Willie Cauley-Stein expresses what I think we all were feeling yesterday leading up to the All-Access premiere: Alex wants to make sure you know that it wasn't him and Ryan Harrow that were late to practice, it was someone else! (DeWayne Peevy confirmed this.) However, Alex should probably clean up his room: More reactions from #LaFamilia on "All-Access Kentucky": As a fan of the Cats and seasonal decor, I enjoy the blue flower pots and white mums on Coach Cal's porch. Remember when we used to make fun of Doron Lamb for getting pedicures? I wish more men would be like him and Patrick Patterson now. #feetaregross #cleanemup You know, if I took a picture with the caption "Just Livin' Life," it would probably be of me in sitting on the couch in yoga pants and a UK t-shirt trolling TweetDeck with a beer, but I guess that's the difference between me and John Wall: In "Kids These Days with Derek Anderson," Derek preaches to today's youth about putting down the video games and picking up their lives: Does anyone else hear his tweets in their head in the voice of a sassy old black lady? Or is that just me? This brings up another fun topic: People on Twitter whose tweets you read in their voice in your head. Years of watching WKYT and local coverage of the Cats will always make me hear Rob Bromley's booming baritone. Try it: Am I alone here? Who else on Twitter is like this? Doron Lamb, can we trade lives for just one day? And can I keep all the purchases I make? This is a fantastic picture for many reasons, the most obvious that a cell phone holster on Ron Mercer's belt?! Does this mean I have stop making fun of my dad for having one? (Love you, Dad.) Smooth poses an excellent question: I'm pretty sure all of his answers are "New York City," but I encourage you to share yours in the comments. Walter McCarty encountered a real life hoarder: Bret Bearup kind of sums up last Saturday's football game in one tweet: And that's all we're going to say about that. Rich Brooks was in the house! While visiting Lexington, Papa and his wife made the rounds, stopping by Keeneland to pay their annual dues to the Bluegrass. He also stopped by practice: (PLEASE COME BACK!!!! Waaaah...) I realize this is the third Papa Brooks tweet, but he is such a badass: Ladies, Stevie Johnson needs your opinion: It's not cheating, but it sure is suspect. And kind of odd. What guy likes a pictures of a girl's bed sheets? In this week's Pictures of Chuck Hayes and his kid "Tweet That Makes You Go Aww," we go with Chuck Hayes and his kid to an A's game. Rally monkey! Speaking of monkeys, Corey Peters looks downright terrified: I'm kind of done with Bookie for a while, so instead, let's finish up with "The Wild and Wacky World of Enes." This week, Enes had some fun... ...showed off his new body: ...and tried on hats. Silly Enes...where are you going to wear that hat?? Oktoberfest? Look at those feathers. That's just crazy. Until next time, RT plz?
