Tweet Beat: Alex Poythress is the new Doron Lamb

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 8 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. This afternoon, I had a serious case of deja blue. Alex Poythress stole a page from Doron Lamb's playbook and posted several pictures of his teammates sleeping in a van: Is Alex following in Doron's footsteps as the new "Team No Sleep" enforcer? Rising sophomore who decided to come back for a championship run...if he starts tweeting pictures of his socks and asking "Who up," I'm calling it. Leave it to Jarrod Polson to one-up him and post a video of the team sleeping on Instagram (cue Instagram video vs. Vine fight): Patrick Patterson held a Q&A on Twitter last night with fans, and had some pretty interesting answers, like... Matt and the crew talked about this on the radio show this morning, and agreed with Patrick that 2010 would have won. I've gone back and forth about it in my head, and can only come to the conclusion that it needs to be settled during this year's alumni game. Patrick also said that he wasn't satisfied with his career at UK because he didn't win a National Championship and he sometimes regrets not sticking around longer. And in case you were curious about his stance on renovating Rupp vs. building a new arena: Sounds good to me. Other highlights: -- He thinks the best player on next year's team will be Julius Randle -- If he could play against any current or former UK player, he'd want to play Sky Walker and Mashburn -- The toughest player he's ever had to defend is John Wall -- He couldn't pick just one favorite UK moment, so he listed three: "Demarcus "call me" moment in Mississippi State OR watching Jodie score 54 OR SEC Tourney" -- How often does he miss being at Kentucky? "Every second of everyday." Miss you too, PPatt. From WBA to country music superstar? I think the BBN needs to hear this, Jarrod. It looks like Marcus Lee got his volleyball fix this week: Screen shot 2013-06-20 at 2.43.55 PM I think Kyle Wiltjer may have had his fill of China: Eloy Vargas had to give Doron Lamb a geography lesson today: This vine would have been much more impressive if it was Patrick Patterson doing DDR: Don't tell Nazr Mohammed he's old. Nazr did Bikram Yoga AND Crossfit in one day. And then probably went home to do Insanity: Screen shot 2013-06-20 at 4.28.13 PM Speaking of hot yoga, anyone who has ever attempted it will appreciate this ad on Craigslist. Ramel Bradley letting his popcorn ride the escalator makes me REALLY NERVOUS: Those steps are approaching way too quickly. What if he doesn't pick it up in time? It will spill and get all soggy from the soda...aaaaah! Doesn't he know popcorn is a sacred food?? I'd like to know what class at UK gets away with showing "The Devil Wears Prada" so I can go back in time and take it: RANDALL COBB AND PAPA BROOKS TOGETHER AGAIN: They are the two best friends that anyone could have! Poor Glenn Holt got cut out of this picture: Speaking of Randall, he is not happy that his server at Coldstone didn't sing for a tip: How can you not sing for Randall Cobb?? What did Erin Calipari think when she heard her dad was going to be the honorary pace car driver at the Quaker State 400? But you do have to keep your car neat, right Erin? This week's "Tweet That Makes You Go Aww"? Baby Doron Lamb: TWEET OF THE WEEK: Tod Lanter Screen shot 2013-06-20 at 2.49.09 PM There were a lot of great Father's Day pics on Twitter this week, but this one from Tod Lanter may take the cake. Allow me to channel Aaron Flener here and give you the Awkward UK Photo breakdown: 1. Going by the Tod's mom's hair and the awesomeness of his dad's hat, this must have been taken in the early to mid-90's, possibly circa 1995 going by the "cat scratch" Kentucky font. 2. Two words: fanny pack. Two more: cuffed jorts. 3. Tod's little sister seems content in her "Blossom" style sunhat, complete with a bow in case you doubted for one second she was a girl. 4. Tod's posture says it all; even at a young age, he was a P-I-M-P. Does he care that his shirt is probably two sizes too big for him? No. He's just excited to be at the amusement park with his family having a blast. Until next time, RT plz?
