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.
Men, we have ourselves a little problem. I'm not going to dig in to all of the ways we are being sissified by society these days. The way we are displayed on TV is just one of those things that is beyond our control. No, what we are going to discuss today is much easier for you to resolve.
Gentlemen, pants have pockets for a reason. Those pockets should have 2 items in them at all times.Your wallet. And your keys. If you are a man, a REAL man, this isn't even an issue. Could you imagine your DAD running around without that giant, worn out, rubber banded, stuffed with coupons and business cards monstrosity of a billfold? Hell no you couldn't.
I have this co-worker. Never mind the fact that he is a mouth breathing Tarhole fan. He's actually a pretty good dude. But he has this habit. A habit which costs me dearly every time I am with him.
Oh sure, most times we go to lunch he remembers at the last minute. "Hey, I need to run to my truck and get my wallet," he will say. OK. Oddly enough, I keep my wallet in my back pocket, but whatever. Then there are times where he doesn't remember. We will get to the restaurant, and I will have to spot him a 10 or so. No biggie, he always pays me back. It is a minor inconvenience that shouldn't really bother anybody. We've all been there.
The other day, however, he committed the ultimate sin. We met at a job site, where he jumped into my truck to go to lunch. Upon arrival at the quickie Japanese place (Hibachi chicken, delightful) he realizes his mistake. Again, no worries, I'll front a man for an hour or so. We eat, all is well, and I take him back to his truck. He jumps out, both of us having forgotten his debt, and I tear off down the road. About 10 minutes later, he calls. I pick up, and immediately begin to tell him that I will get my money later, when he says.....are you ready for this....."I need you to come back, my KEYS are in your CUP HOLDER."
I need medication.
I would like to thank Tampa Pack for being the only one to cooperate and send me a tweet last week. Too bad I lost it. Here is what I did get.
...and Swofford's heart grew three sizes today, after watching competent football from FSU and Clemson.— Lake Rosenberg (@LakeRosenberg) September 23, 2012
The Grinch. That's good comedy.
This is the 2nd violent crime in about a year involving an ACC kicker. 3rd if you count Will Snyderwine gut punching me on a weekly basis.— Ben Swain (@thedevilwolf) September 23, 2012
That's Duke's kicker. I had to look it up too. So, this question was asked:
The Regional Broadcast Bowl RT @lebrownlow: Seriously, what would y’all call the NC State-UNC game and what would the "trophy" be?— Ben Swain (@thedevilwolf) September 23, 2012
@thedevilwolf trophy: the Raycom-only coffee pot— Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) September 23, 2012
Here is one you couldn't have missed. I think it got retweeted like 48 million times. Russell Wilson played in this game, so it is ACC related enough for me.
@joe_sheehan If only Aaron Rodgers had Allstate instead of State Farm. He'd be protected from mayhem like this— Danny Reardon(@danny_reardon) September 25, 2012
Major Medical boyeeee. Which brings us to our Tweet of the week. No commentary needed:
Site's down - #SBNationUnited is actually all us bloggers striking. Don't worry, though - the replacement bloggers are great.— Rodger Sherman (@sippinonpurple) September 25, 2012
Have a good weekend everybody. Join us in the Game Thread tomorrow, I get tired of Steven and David telling the same old jokes.
