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.
So, how about that baseball team? It's pretty awesome that they were able to advance, right? Coming out of the losers bracket, beating Vandy twice, and now heading to Florida seems like a pretty big deal to the casual baseball observer.
I have to admit it, I HATE watching baseball. All that spittin' and scratchin' and posturin'. Not enough ACTION. Sure, they make the leaping catches and spectacular defensive plays, and the home runs are cool and all, but sheesh man, what you have to suffer through for those brief moments of excitement? Snooze. Fest. If I get more than a few beers in me, I'm asleep without the proper stimulation, and baseball just doesn't do it for me. That being said, the games that were televised in my house last weekend were actually somewhat exciting.
Did any of you catch the Sakerlina vs. Clempson matchup last weekend? The first one, where they went extra innings, was, spectacular. I currently reside in South Carolina (save the jokes, please) and my next door neighbor is an alum. He was all geeked up over the win. I was happy for him.
Speaking of Summer and crappy sports, Twitter is also a snooze fest lately. I'm saving the funny ones, but unless something happens in the ACC, I have to broaden my subject matter. So, until the REAL sports start back, you will just have to enjoy the wide range of stuff that I find funny.
Sunday night, when the chips were down, who was there to comfort us in our time of need as sports fans? This guy:
She’ll be coming around the mountain when she comes…— NC State Shit (@NCState_Shit) June 4, 2012
Then, after the victory came this little gem:
NC State Shheeeeet wakes up just in time to break Rodon's arm in the bottom of the victory pile— NotAFanOfBlue (@NotAFanOfBlue) June 5, 2012
Then, a story took off about traffic circles. There was a lot of activity on my timeline about it, most of it I skipped, until this one:
Well it is NC State. RT @joeovies: They're reducing the Hillsborough St. traffic circle to one lane? It was that complicated?— Brian Barbour (@tarheelblog) June 6, 2012
That would really piss me off if it wasn't funny, smarmy little &^%$. That's OK, our Duke brethren were there to return fire:
All I remember from the '10 Music City bowl was UNC having 27 players on offense on the final play.— Ben Swain (@thedevilwolf) June 7, 2012
Sick burn. Which brings us to the moment you have all been anxiously awaiting, the Gold Star Tweet of the Week. I will stray a little from the norm here, and go ahead and tell you, I didn't make this selection because it was simply funny. Oh no. This litle piece of internet gold was selected based on the shear absurdity, the outlandishness, the absolute unfiltered ridiculousness of it. And the fact that I think the author actually believes it. Check this out:
Best college basketball player ever needs more than 197 followers RT @laettnerbball Hey everybody! It's Christian!I'm officially tweeting!— Adam Rowe (@DukeHoopBlog) June 7, 2012
AH HA HA HA! OH MAN. I CAN'T EVEN....THIS STUFF WRITES ITSELF... HOO BOY!
Enjoy the Super Regionals this weekend, everyone, and Go Pack 9.
