Twitter is seriously my favorite. It took me a very, very long time to come around to it, but now I'm not sure how I ever lived without it. It's not because it gives me a place to vent publicly about strangers who irritate me and post pictures of my new knee socks—although that part is awesome, too.
I eventually embraced Twitter because of the unfettered look it provides into the lives of people who were previously inaccessible to nobodies like me. It bridges the gap between the somebodies and the nobodies—a gap that probably shouldn't be bridged—and the result is often hilarious and/or generally entertaining.
The truth is, people like being reminded that superstar athletes and major movie stars are human. Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony is more famous than you, richer than you and more talented than you—but guess what! Melo acts just like a kid on Christmas when he gets to hold a baby panda—just like you would be if you could afford a trip to China.
Here are 50 other hilarious athlete Twitpics, all of which are a refreshing reminder that your favorite athletes can be as stupid as the rest of us.
And if you like what you see, feel free to hook me up with a follow on Twitter and tell me about it—@Blamberr. If you don't like what you see, just complain in the comments section.
