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.
Well, well, well. Aren't we just the upper crust readership? Make one, sideways (but true) comment about soccer, and suddenly you find out that what you thought was the beer-drinkin', 'Merican sports watchin' pack of good ol' boys, is actually a bunch of hoity toity prep schoolers, that just looove their "futbol". I had no idea. I didn't know that we were so supercilious. I guess I will just have to trade in my Miller Lites for some Dogfish something or other, so that I can hang out with you fellers.
I mean, isn't that our whole angle, as Wolfpack fans? The high and mighty, holier than thou jerks from down the street like to pick on us because we go to MooU? Don't we relish that role? When Lance shows up in his baby blue sweater vest and khakis, we roll our eyes as we burn out in our Camaro, right? This is Soc's vs. Greasers man, and I want to be Ponyboy.
It's cool though. To each his own. If you guys want to watch soccer, that's your prerogative. But don't project off on me if I would rather not spend 90 minutes watching scoreless sports. I survived the Sidney Lowe era, I don't have to suffer through scoring droughts like that anymore. My time could be better spent reading the poorly punctuated rantings of the average Tennessee fan. Besides, when I think soccer, this comes to mind:

Which brings me to the moment you have all been waiting for. Since we have strayed from the ACC related theme as of late, I have decided to present the award this week to the one tweet that made me literally laugh out loud. I mean, knee slapper, spit coffee, however you want to describe it, this one had people looking at me weird and asking what was so funny. So, without further ado, here is your Gold Star Tweet of the Week:
Happy Fathers Day!Or as Antonio Cromartie calls it.. "Christmas in June"— Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) June 17, 2012
