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.
Gentlemen. (And ladies, I suppose, if I haven't already alienated all of the female readers we might have had) I come to you, a broken man. I am humbled. I am lowly.
For the past few months, I have taken great pride in the fact that I have nothing better to do with my time than scour Twitter looking for snarky tweets about the ACC. Yes, I love the fact that I am almost 40 years old, somehow able to hold down a crappy job, somewhat raise a family, and still have an inordinate amount of time to devote to silliness. It's what I live for.
Alas, my hubris has been my undoing.
Ever since Football season started, I've been really stinking busy. BOOO!!! What with work, the kids and their stupid extracurricular activities, and lawn maintenance, I haven't had a lot of extra time on my hands. This means no time to scour Twitter and compile the weekly special that you all have grown to love and look forward to every Friday. This comes at the most inconvenient time, of course, now that the snark is flowing freely in light of football season.
That being said, this is an appeal to you, the best readership in the whole wide web. Be my research committee. Help me help you. In your daily time wasting (Reading your timeline on Twitter) if you see a good one, DM it to me here. It won't take but a minute. If it is funny enough (and I know you guys are good judges of snark!) I will include it in my post, and give you credit for the find. It's the least you clowns could do. On to the Tweets!!
Hoo boy, a lot has happened. let's start here:
Goodness gracious. A Hansbrough has finally been called for illegal travelling.— NITStan (@NITStan) September 11, 2012
Best thing ever? Best thing ever.
I guess the ACC got some new friends. These were good:
Notre Dame will compete in the ACC in all sports but football. So they're Duke.— ESPN UNITE (@UNITE) September 12, 2012
Everyone's missing the point. ACC lacrosse is now arguably the most dominant conference of any college sport.— Chris Moore (@cmoore61) September 12, 2012
Notre Dame without footbal thats like a conference taking Nc State without bass fishing. WTF ?— david riddle (@stickwolf) September 12, 2012
WTF indeed, my friend.(HT: OmegaWolf for that one.)
This was a good one on the whole Amerson non-issue:
Debbie Yow is going to send Eric Leak another letter. This time in ALL CAPS.— Joe Ovies (@joeovies) September 20, 2012
VERY FUNNY!! UNC's Chancellor "stepping down" almost certainly had a lot of funny stuff Tweeted that I missed, but I did catch this one:
At lunch my unc coworker asked why I hadn't sent any @lee_folwer smartass comments. Told him lee must be working on his acceptance speech.— T. Farlee (@packfan99) September 17, 2012
I love that dude. Let's see, what else do I have for ....oh crap. Oh noes. I only have one more. Guess it will have to suffice as the Tweet of the Week. If only there was a way to get some nice folks to help me with this...
North Carolina is not handling this test at Louisville very well. But then again they're actually taking this test themselves for a change.— Chili (@DannyFordIsGod) September 15, 2012
I'm kidding, that one would have won anyway. Now, go out there and send me some snark. Have a good weekend, everybody.
