Tweet Beat: Nerlens wakes up in a new Bugatti

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. With the money he's about to make, Nerlens Noel probably could wake up in a new Bugatti soon: Jon Hood sees Tod Lanter and Papa Brooks' fish and raises them 30 lbs.: Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.06.39 PM Andrew and Aaron Harrison made things a little easier for their fellow students out by dressing in different colors for Prom: Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.21.30 PM For the record, Andrew's the one on the right with the longer hair. If they kept the different hair styles at UK, that would really help me out. +1 for the Willie is a hipster argument: Maybe Willie would like school more if he took art history classes? Just in case you were wondering, DeMarcus Cousins has a UK basketball court in his backyard: Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.19.32 PM McDonald's advertising is clearly working on Tod Lanter: Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.10.54 PM In fact, he's pretty much an addict now. I'm going to post this Vine, but I bet none of you all will read what I'm typing once it starts playing: You got some drool...right there. Yep, got it. Chuck Hayes starts a fun debate: I love that he includes one of my favorites: I'll bite. Here are my Top 5 favorite sports movies: Rocky IV (Like Chuck, I dig the Russian plot) Major League A League of Their Own Rudy Happy Gilmore Honorable mention: Bend It Like Beckham I trust you'll blast me for my choices and leave your own in the comments section. This exchange made me smile: After he pushed LeBron James to the ground and got ejected on Friday night, Nazr Mohammad took to Twitter to apologize: And here I thought I was a big Randall Cobb fan: Patrick Towles sums up Andrew Wiggins' decision quite nicely: This may be the only time I've ever heard anyone praise a squirrel: This week's "Tweet that Makes You Go Aww" goes to Goose Givens, who made his mother a pecan pie cake from scratch for Mother's Day: I didn't know such a thing existed. It looks delicious. Papa Brooks may be all the way in Oregon, but he's still got plenty of Wild Turkey to keep him busy: TWEET OF THE WEEK: Willie Cauley-Stein Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.24.57 PM Willie posted this picture of him skateboarding on Instagram earlier this week, but the comments it got were what made laugh. Check them out: Orlando Antigua: You better be careful on that skateboard brother ! WCS: I will lol nothing crazy just cruising Alex Poythress: Lol teach me Kyle Wiltjer: you already know Alex would fall Orlando Antigua: I going to need all of you @alexthegreat22 @kwiltj @squishywcs15 to not get any crazy ideas and quit playing with my emotions ... Lol wish moms a happy Mother's Day from me I'm with Coach O, boys. Be careful...we've got a championship to win. Until next time, RT plz?
