What will a little extra cash do for me?

Soobum Im-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

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. Remember, send your suggestions here.

Folks, it is my supreme pleasure to announce that this week, after several months of 2 house payments, 2 water bills, and 2 electric bills, the Toe family has parted ways with the starter home. Yes, we sold our first house this week, which can only mean one thing. LIQUOR and FIREWORKS BABY!!

When we bought our current home in April, we thought, "Hey, how hard can it be?" Well let me tell you kids, it's pretty damn tough. I mean, thank heavens that Miller Lite is cheap, or I would have been in big trouble. A man can only live on bologna sammiches for so long. I'm almost 40, that's far too old to be walking into the c-store to buy beer with rolls of quarters.

This week, however, the clouds parted and the sun came blasting through. We finally sold the house that we bought 14 years ago. We were really young when we bought it, and it was far too small. By 2012 standards, it was pretty much a car payment, but even that proved to be crippling. Remarkably, we were able to sell it for what was owed, plus a little extra to make me feel better.

I can tell you this much. This weekend, I'll be living high on the hog. I just might spend a few extra bucks on the Champagne of Beers. I may also invest in some olive loaf. Oh yeah, there's no stopping me now.

There was so much good stuff on Twitter this week, I had a hard time narrowing it down. Let's start here:

You said it. This one...I just...can't even

Engineering!! Then there was the game. There were some knocks on one of our players in particular. These views are not necessarily those of the writer or blah blah blah this crap is funny.

That young man will bounce back.

Then came the second half.

Poor indeed. This is the only tweet that I had sent to me this week. Glad that I am known around these parts as "the tweet guy".


Funny stuff. But the tweet of the week, man, I lol'ed for like, 20 minutes or so. It came from a local sports radio guy here in Charlotte:

HA! Have a good weekend everybody. If the pack can pull off the upset Saturday, I'll throw up some extra bottle rockets.
