Has Twitter given our favorite athletes a place to unleash their inner femininity?
It has come to light in the TD section that some athletes are now exhibiting traits that women generally are known for:
At least Terrell Owens had some good entetaining messages to share:
"Get your popcorn ready, 'cause I'm gonna put on a show."
"Like my boy tells me; if it looks like a rat and smells like a rat, by golly, it is a rat."
Or even inspirational ones at times:
"I just feel like with God you can't be defeated."
And yes even idiotic ones:
"And I told him my name isn't Reid. My name is Owens. I'm not one of his kids. Don't tell me to shut up."
This I can deal with from our male athletes, but I can't agree when a male athlete uses Twitter for playing the "Victim".
Take for example Arian Foster, who didn't like his position on the RB Fantasy League Boards before the drafts.
"4 those sincerely concerned, I'm doing ok & plan 2 B back by opening day. 4 those worried abt your fantasy team, u ppl are sick."
Sounds like what a female Twitter would write. But to his credit, he does come back and give you something worth reading for us Fantasy League Owners.
"This is an MRI of my hamstring, The white stuff surrounding the muscle is known in the medical world as anti-awesomeness."
What about a current Athlete like the Bears running back, Matt Forte?
"There's only so many times a man that has done everything he's been asked to do can be disrespected! Guess the GOOD GUYS do finish last."
As we find out later, Tiki Barber retires and they needed a good back up in Michael Bush. No harm in getting another good back just incase your starter goes down with an injury right?
I dare not research the NBA for fear there will most likely be a ton of juicy Femine Tweets by our Basketball Athletes. But let's get back to the basics shall we? Why can't our current Athletes stick with the basics? Deion Sanders was able to give us some entertaining quotes*, for instance:
"I felt like a deer with a hundred hunters after me."
"You don't go from a Yugo to a Benz, back to a Yugo."
"Sure we're in limos. We're stars. How else is a star supposed to travel?"
So come on guys, don't give us the sensitive BS on Twitter, save it for your Facebook account will ya?
