Welcome to your ACC Tweets of the Week post, where we highlight the funniest stuff said in 140 characters or less, about any and everything related to ACC Sports.
I believe that last week, I thoroughly covered my lack of excitement for watching the sport of baseball on television. I did, however, suck it up and burn through almost 2 full days of rain outs, lightning outs and strike outs to watch the Pack 9 in the Florida Super Regional last weekend. I can now say, without a doubt, that my dislike has not changed one bit. Holy crap that was boring. I napped. I awoke. I napped some more. I swept the kitchen. The Wolfpack lost the game.
HOWEVAH...all of that is behind me now, as we embark on this weekend, where we find ourselves observing the holiest of holidays. The mother of all Sundays. That's right folks, this Sunday is Father's day. The day where I am allowed to do whatever. In the hell. I want. Oh sure, there are limits to the debauchery. But, for the most part, I rule the roost. Wanna drink beer in the garage in your underwear? Have at it. Wanna drink beer in the bed at 10AM? Go right ahead. Wanna drink beer...you get the point.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'll hang out with the little toes. I'll read the little hand drawn card, and I will eat the 3 day old donut that my 9 year old stuffed in a sandwich bag for me. (It is a Krispy Kreme, after all) I will do all of the family crap that is required of me. But...after that? When my wife and kids go visit her Dad? It. Is. On. I will drink beer and scratch myself and watch a sporting event on the television that I will cuss loudly at. Which brings me to the greatest mystery that has ever existed.
Why, in the great, blue hell, is Father's Day NOT OBSERVED DURING FOOTBALL SEASON???
Here, are the best Tweets that I could scour from the interwebs this week. There was a lot of Soccer (The "futbol" rant will be saved for another day) on TV this week, apparently. You thought baseball was boring? Sheesh, that shit is unwatchable. But, since I am so "in-tune" with the world's economic problems, this one had me chuckling:
If Greece had a dollar for every goal they scored today...well, that would be pretty accurate, actually.— Josh Shellman (@joshellman) June 8, 2012
Then, as our very own Omega Wolf has covered in detail, we got some more news out of the flagship:
It's a known fact that most UNC fans didn't go to school there. Turns out that's also true about most of their athletes. #WhatAJoke— Dave from C-F (@dfcf99) June 9, 2012
The NBA Finals started this week, which brought this from old reliable:
i don't really give a damn who wins the nba finals just as long as it's not duke.— Coach L Folwer (@Lee_Folwer) June 13, 2012
Speaking of the NBA and the Flagship:
If you predicted this, step forward. Not so fast EVERYONE. RT @CBSSports: Bobcats reportedly interested in drafting Harrison Barnes at No.2.— Riddick & Reynolds (@RnR_NCSU) June 14, 2012
Which led to this:
So if you check our mentions, it is clear that Bobcat fans REALLY, we mean REALLY don't want Harrison Barnes.— CBSSports.com (@CBSSports) June 14, 2012
Whiiiich led to this:
CBS Sports says Bobcats fans really don't want Barnes. What'd they get, 4 maybe 5 replies?— Joe Wagstaff (@Joe_Wagstaff) June 14, 2012
Heyooo! Oh yeah, I nearly forgot the game! Robbery at the plate? Robbery at the plate.
They gotta play 9 innings too pal.— Joe Wagstaff (@Joe_Wagstaff) June 10, 2012
That one got me laughing.
NC State should have had the foresight to fund a dome for UF's baseball stadium— Jameson (@the_Jameson) June 10, 2012
You said it. But it wasn't nearly as funny as this:
and threw Brackman and Devine out of the game too RT @Joe_Wagstaff Can't believe Karl Hess punched Diaz out right there....— Jameson (@the_Jameson) June 10, 2012
HA! Classic. Sorry, though, it was runner up this week. The honor of having the Gold Star Tweet of the Week goes to one of our favorite alums. This tweet is ACC related only in that it came from an ACC legend. The man who gave us "hongry" and "if your'e scared". That's right kids, this little jewel came from none other than Da'Jules:
If Snoop Dogg is unofficially everyone's "uncle" (Uncle Snoop)...then Greg Oden is everyone's grandfather.— Julius Hodge (@Follow24Hodge) June 12, 2012
HOLY CRAP!!! That dude is the best.
Enjoy your Father's Day, everybody - and - if you don't have yours anymore like me, smile and know that he would have wanted you to enjoy it.
