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.
Folks, it's time to start training.
This week was the ACC football kickoff thingy, which basically means that the teams will start football practice. And do you know what that means to us, the responsible fans? It's high time for us to begin our workout regimen.
Wait, what? Oh hell no, I didn't mean workout in the literal sense. Let's not get carried away here. I mean that we have a certain amount of preparation required of us, as fans. We need to get out the grill, the cooler, and the tailgating tent, and wash all the stupid sand off of them. We need to dig our car flags out of the trunk and attempt to remove the melted crayon. We must make sure that the DirecTV account is all paid up, for those of us that don't get the opportunity to get to the stadium very often. And, we need to tune up our bodies.
I like to exercise the 3 most important muscle groups of a football fan: The vocal chords, the legs, and the liver. I mean, I don't know about you guys, but I don't always get drunk and jump up and down screaming at my TV. That only happens for a few months every Fall. And then, again through the end of March. Ok, so I do it most of the time. But this has been a long off season, and the team is counting on me. I will be having two-a-days drinking beer, jumping off the deep end, and yelling at the neighborhood kids to get offa my lawn.
Why does August have to be so long?
