This Week in ACC Twitterings: Special: Olympics Edition

New, comments

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.

It's the Olympics!!! Tape delayed, innernet streaming, 2012 Summer Games!!!

I love the summer Olympics. It triggers nostalgia of my childhood, and those summers spent tuning the rabbit ears just right to watch Mary Lou Retton in her tiny leotard. As a young lad, my admiration of the female form was just developing, and these girls filled the role quite well. Who cares if they had a face that could stop a clock?

Now, however, I'm afraid to watch Women's Gymnastics in front of other people. NO, not because I'm some kind of creepy old dude that likes young girls in leotards. It's because now I am turning into an old lady. For some reason my eyes started leaking the other night when the US Women won the team gold medal. I got caught up in the moment and all of the emotion that came from their years of preparation paying off in front of the whole world. NBC does that shit on purpose, with the dramatic music and the whole backstory with some kind of adversity. Screw you major network.

I do have a complaint about this year's Olympics, however. What happened to the display of each individual judge's score? My favorite part of Olympics past was finding out which countries hated us the most. You could always count on those Chinese and Russian judges knocking off an extra tenth or two. Commie bastards. What the hell would Iraqi people know about Women's Gymnastics anyway? You can't do that kind of stuff in a burka.

So, since there was so much content available this week, I decided to go with an Olympic theme to the Tweets of the Week post. Here is what I came up with:

Ha haaa, good one, Bony. Here is some quality snark:
Whatever happened to the one where he was GM of some arena?
What an awesome name. There was some other stuff that went on this week, like Football Practice screaming...err.. I mean starting.
I think he needs more exclamation points. Next, we witnessed the meteoric rise and fall of the popularity of handball:
Cool story, bro. Then, Michael Phelps did Michael Phelps pre-weed type things:
It really doesn't ever get old. There was Judo....
And there was another sport, that you really only see during the Olympics. This sport got a lot of similar comments on the twitternet, but this one made me laugh the hardest, so it gets the honor this week:
Hey! That's dirty, fella! Have a good weekend everybody.
