Seattle, Seattle and Soccer

Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets…the thrill of the retweet…and the agony of the unfollow…the human drama of the twitter timeline..This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts

BASEBALL

There is no way that I was going to pass this tweet up today.

For those that don’t know, or have never heard of Michael Pineda, he is the 2-time minor league pitcher of the year for the Seattle Mariners. Lots of buzz beginning to go around about this young guy. Watch him here and here. FYI: he’s hit 99 mph on the radar gun this year. Hope he never hits 99 in a car. Wow!

One more from the Mariners because there’s no other way to explain it other than saying “only in Seattle”. You’ve got to see that picture!


SPORTS IN LIFE

I came across this tweet a couple of days ago that I’ve been meaning to post. I realize that not everyone will understand the significance of it but if you stop and think about it, you might see the whole idea is powerful. I like being able to find stories of how sports can change a culture, a thought pattern or just how it can affect life. This is one of those.

Here is the link to the video. In the midst of the current NFL labor issues, the pending NBA labor issues, craziness in the SEC and who knows what with the L.A. Dodgers, it’s nice every once in awhile to look at the good side of sports.

Before entering the Twitterverse, I came across this story on ESPN today. Listed, are the highest paid athletes from over 180+ countries. Who knew Yuniesky Betancourt would be on this list? And Mariners fans are saying, ‘UGH’.

Soccer To The Extreme

Soccer hooligans. Yes, we’ve all heard the term before. Typing in ‘soccer hooligans’ on YouTube will get you over 9000 videos just with that phrase alone. I used to think that soccer hooligans were only “slightly” worse than SEC fans (e.g. Harvey Updike Jr.). However, the tweet below, makes SEC fans look like angels.

Crowdless Baseball

One of the interesting topics on my baseball list timeline on Twitter has been the early attendance figures at MLB games this season. CNBC’s Darren Rovell had been asking fans to send in pictures of “empty” stadiums. Today, he did some fact-finding to see if the numbers backed up the figures.  

Paging the Seattle Mariners: don’t look at this link.

A New Twitter Baby

Welcome to the Twitterverse, Michael Wilbon. He already has 13,228 followers. Impressive.

Strange But True? Tweet of the Night

Not much to say after that now is there?
