Tweet Beat: Time to kick back and unwind

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 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. There are no words: In this week's #NerlensKnows, Nerlens makes Kentucky fans all tingly with this "I gotta get #9" tweet: Twany Beckham's on board: Me too, Kyle, me too: Congrats to Eloy Vargas and Darius Miller for graduating from UK this past weekend. You know what graduation means...more dressing up and taking tons of pictures with your family. Eloy first, with his mom: Darius didn't post any graduation pics, but he did agree to take this very random snap with Danny Glover at the Derby: Danny Glover being old makes me feel old. A very happy Tweet Beat birthday to both @jpolson05 and @hoodyhood4. Jon Hood celebrated by buying himself a dog: Brian Long wasted no time getting his GTL on once he landed in Newark, heading to "the shore" the very next day. Maybe he can take Snooki's place in the house this summer since she's preggers? When he wasn't buying dogs, Jon Hood was happy to be home, too: Rex Chapman's daughter joined Twitter and wasted no time embarrassing her dad: Mark Krebs spotted another sign of the Kentucky Effect in Louisville over the weekend: Who would pay $10 for Chris Smith's autograph? And this is why Perry Stevenson is my favorite: Here's your chance to play basketball with Ravi Moss! What would you do if a freaking mattress flew into your windshield while driving? Bret Bearup welcomed Scott Padgett to Twitter last week, and gave him some friendly advice: Your move, Oscar Combs... Ashley Judd continues to work with Walter, an abused dog she rescued recently. That is awesome, and I totally applaud her for her effort, but does Walter really need a patch of grass (moss?) to lay his head on while he sleeps? John Wall and Aaron Rodgers have struck up a friendship recently, with Rodgers sending Wall this autographed jersey: ...and Wall returning the favor by sending him a pair of his shoes: My theory: they bonded over Randall Cobb's eyes. Speaking of, looking sharp, Golden Eyes... Moncell Allen shared a #tmitweet earlier this week. Word to the wise people: never tweet from the toilet. Never. Yeah, Wesley Woodyard, that is an awkward moment: Well, at least Maxwell Smith has the right attitude: Watch out, Europe! Aaron Boyd is in the house! #ohboyd I am suddenly really excited about next week's Tweet Beat. Hey, it's interactive Tweet Beat time! ...Doron Lamb's jumpshot, A Friday night in Porcini's, Jon Hamm, Richie Farmer's credit card, Joe B. Hall's fishin line, Pete Thamel's ego...keep 'em coming. Ladies, you might look like Kate Upton, but unless you can cook, Smooth isn't interested: It was a close contest, but I had to give this week's "Tweet that makes you go 'Aww'" to Sam Malone and his kitten: However, Doron Lamb throwing up three goggles at the children's hospital was a very, very close second: ...and in third, Eric Bledsoe and his daughter at the playground: Bookie has been quiet on Twitter this week. Maybe he's distracted? #bookietweetoftheweek #ladyfriend #whoacleavage We need you too, Bookie. Until next time, RT plz?
