Twitter is absolutely blowing up right now.
Antonio Cromartie tweeted about how bad food was at training camp, and ended up getting fined $2,500 for it.
Charlie Villanueva and Chris Bosh recently had a tweet-off to see who could get to 50k followers first. And Chad Johnson has butted heads with the NFL over whether or not he'll tweet during games.
A lot of what comes from Twitter is useless, but it's hard to argue that it's a really unique way to get a glance into the lives of athletes. I started to wonder what things would have been like if we always had Twitter.
I decided take a look back at some important dates in sports history and imagined what it would be like if athletes twittered back then.
