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, put your suggestions in the comments section with ACC related accounts we can follow.
Did a little traveling for work this week, to Albuquerque NM. Every time I am there, it is inevitable that I will see the original Lobos logo (say that 5 times fast!) somewhere, and be reminded of what was the greatest sports day in my almost 40 year life. Then I go to one of the many outstanding restaurants, eat until I cannot stand up, and, presto: I am back to being my miserable self!
If you have never been to that part of the country, I highly recommend it, if for nothing other than the gastro-intestinal joy that it brings. The question that you will always be asked is, what color of chili sauce do you want, red or green? Oh, and when I say always, that is no exaggeration. Those cats put chili sauce on EVERYTHING. Eggs and bacon? Of course. Reuben sandwich? Why not? Pancakes? Why should I have to decide? Put 'em BOTH on there!
There was some OK stuff in Tweetland this week, but I still need you guys to hook me up with the funny accounts from other teams in the conference. Let's just see what we have, after the jump.
Travels Hopsborough is playing in the NBA playoffs. ACC related? ACC Related.
Don't know why, but I bet Tyler Hansbrough not only believes power bands work, but has tried one on his jank.— edsbs (@edsbs) May 20, 2012
Always funny to pick on Beaker.
More potential realignment drama:
If all these teams really do leave the ACC and Duke still cant get to a Bowl Game, the program really could be in trouble.— Travis Hancock (@TBoneWFNZ) May 21, 2012
That one made me chuckle.
So, Stanford made up some crazy title for a coordinator (I'm far too lazy to explain it, and not really sure I understand it anyway) that brought about a few good ones:
NC State will have 'Director of Wisconsin Quarterback Development' #ACCcoordinatornames— Joe Ovies (@joeovies) May 22, 2012
Duke will employ the Director of Opponent Schedule Padding #ACCcoordinatornames— Jameson (@the_Jameson) May 22, 2012
Chuck Amato would have gone with the "Third and Long Toney Baker HB Draw Coordinator" #ACCcoordinatornames— Matt P (@UMwolfpack87) May 22, 2012
That's quality snark, but even after all of the good stuff that came from that, The Gold Star Tweet of the Week is shared by two winners (I can do that if I want to) and is a result of our rival's head baseball coach getting suspended.
unc's mike fox is NOT suspended for a game according to the league office. he's just leaving a day early in case the crowd storms the field.— Coach L Folwer (@Lee_Folwer) May 24, 2012
All of the other ACC coaches will wear tape on their shoes with "MF" written on it for the rest of the tourney. #doublemeaning— Jason Dixon (@JDFanBuzzPD) May 24, 2012
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend everybody, and, thank a Veteran.
