Twitter is an easy way to connect with celebrities, family, and friends. Sports stars are among those that you can connect with on Twitter. Sometimes you can ask actual athletes on what is going on in their lives or what it is like playing a specific team.
Then there are cases where you want to speak to the real athlete, but instead you are faced with the fake athlete. Fake athletes and sports figures provide some of the best tweets. Most times they are funny.
Here are some of the funniest accounts.
LeBron James could be one of the most hated players in the NBA now after his "Decision." His ego has its own Twitter account as does his elbow from his play-off injury. A lot of people like to make him a King, but as the Cavalier's owner simply put it, he was self titled the King. This could be due to his ego.
"TO DO FOR TODAY: 1) CONTINUE TO BE AMAZING 2) BE AS LEBRON AS POSSIBLE 3) PUT TOENAIL CLIPPINGS ON EBAY."
"ZAC EFRON KEEPS TEXTIN ME FOR SKIN CARE TIPS, BUT I WON'T SAY. NOW I FEEL BAD CAUSE I DON'T LIKE HURTIN LITTLE GIRLS DREAMS LIKE THAT."
"MY REVIEW OF INCEPTION: MY OUTFIT WAS NICE CAUSE MY SHOES REALLY COMPLIMENTED MY SHIRT AND I GOT SOME RAISINETTES CAUSE THEY'RE THE BOMB."
"DAMN YO STEINBRENNER DIED. AT LEAST HE DIED KNOWING I'M A YANKEE FAN UNTIL IT'S NOT COOL TO BE A YANKEE FAN."
The ESPN Mole is a source that will give the behind the scenes of what goes down at ESPN's studio and headquarters. No confirmation if this is a Bleacher Report representative spying. This gives us an inside scoop of what goes behind the behind the scenes of the "This Is Sportscenter commercials"
"Anybody know why we now have a "no breakdancing" policy at the holiday party? Two words: Brian Kenny."
"If you pay very close attention, you will notice that Chris Berman never wears the same panama hat twice."
"Big meeting here with Bus Cook today re giving Favre air time to make announcement. Date: TBA. Location: Palm Springs Salvation Army."
Vince Carter may not be one of the best basketball players in the NBA anymore, but he still puts on a show. He definitely fills seats at some arenas where he plays. Simply stated, he may never have the chance to win an NBA Championship. But at least some of his hopes are up, at least on his fake Twitter account.
"It's not that I can't guard Ray Allen or Paul Pierce, I'd just rather guard Scalabrine."
"It's important to stay hydrated during a game, but the Gatorade is so far away..."
"This is ridiculous. Why is Lost still trending? The game was last night!"
"I'm excited for the breast feeding contest at this year's WNBA All-Star game."
Somehow the vuvuzela became such a great phenomenon that someone created its own Twitter page. Just like the actual thing the only sound that comes out of it is the annoying buzz.
Vuvuzelas made their way onto YouTube also as there was a button to turn on the sound in any video.
The vuvuzelas are not a person, but are treated as royalty on Twitter with over 10,000 followers. Great idea by whoever made the page and very creative.
Top Tweets: "BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ #missuworldcup"
"Good news: I DVR'd every game and intend to rewatch them all. Which means of course there shall be BZZZZZZZZZing throughout."
"1 down. 11,076 to go. Good thing there's four years until another World Cup."
Lets face it! The Mets are awful, well at least in recent years. They just dropped yet another series to baseball's worst team. It can all be due in part to sub-par involvement by the front office to winning.
Fred Wilpon is near the top of the organization's troubles probably behind Omar Minaya (We will get to him shortly) and Jerry Manuel. Someone created a fake Twitter account to make an even bigger joke of the Mets ownership.
Take a look at some of the classic tweets.
"It's very difficult to review last minute trade offers and prepare for a deposition at the same time."
"As Mike Jacobs was leaving we told him that when his playing days are over we'll sign him to a 1 day contract so he can retire as a Met."
"Maybe you didn't know Chad Cordero was still in the league. Omar knew and now we've got him. #buildingthebridgetokrod"
Ok, he's not a real athlete, but c'mon he is one of the funniest sports figures on television. His bio on Twitter says it all as he describes himself as a legendary ballplayer working on a comeback.
His location is also funny as he says he is in North Carolina...for now. If you want a feel good, yet funny story on a ballplayer working towards rebuilding his greatness. Look no further than Kenny Powers.
"Making my own blockbuster movie tonight - "CONCEPTION" #KPisBACK"
"In regards to the second season of my hit TV show, well, just like a priest would say, the pain will go away once you stop your squealing."
"Can't believe Ricky Martin was a fairy this whole time. Who's next? Baseball legend, Billy Bean?"
Mike Dunleavy is not one of basketball's best coaches at all. The fake Dunleavy has over 2,000 followers on Twitter. That's more wins that Dunleavy could ever dream of.
He describes himself as "I am the greatest basketball coach in the NBA. Possibly ever. I'm also the best general manager alive." Boy, is he wrong!
He was fired in March 2010, but his fake Twitter account continues to entertain us with his funny and interesting approaches to basketball.
"I don't see why the Heat would want Eddie House. He'll just be standing alone behind the 3pt line while Wade and Bron drive the lane."
"There's no way the Gators cheated. Urban Meyer followed the rule book that Pete Carroll and Lane Kiffin co-authored."
"So this Heat team features Wade, LBJ, Bosh...and a bunch of guys that helped the Heat and Cavs suck last year?"
JaMarcus Russell is a failure. Simply put. He was drafted No.1 overall and all he did was get fat and become addicted to Drank. The Raiders released the former college star. From then on everything went downhill. Which only led to funny tweets.
Here are some of the funny tweets from such a failure.
"JaMarcus need money. Can't figure out why nobody wants to buy a diamond-encrusted #2 Raiders necklace."
"JaMarcus havin a LeBron-like show on the Food Network. Will I stick with Taco Bell where I was raised, or go to the more-glamorous Chipotle?"
"JaMarcus waitin for my Pros vs. Joes invite."
Brett Favre is one interesting man to keep an eye on. Why have a LeBron James Watch, when you can have a Brett Favre watch every season. Will he come back or will he decide to finally run off into the sunset.
He would be interesting to see on a reality television show. Bleacher Report has previously nominated Favre to be a contestant on Survivor. That would be very interesting.
He doesn't have an official Twitter account, but he could pull a LeBron James and create an account before he makes his Decision.
Here are some of the funny Tweets by the fake Brett Favre:
"I want to send a text to Ed Werder... but Bus removed the 'messages' icon off my iPhone."
"Ankle is broken. At least one rib. I think my hip, too. Hell, I think I've got tuberculous"
"People think I avoid training camp. Truth is that it's the grass... grows and grows until about August 15."
"Ankle still seems to hurt... it'll get better about Aug 14."
"Feelin sorry for the Hattiesburg High WRs... every one of them has at least one broken finger. Sorry guys"
Al Davis looks very much like the crypt keeper. Thank god his Twitter profile photo does not have him smiling, because his teeth are bad. Yet this man is one of the most committed owners to winning.
His team may suck, but he still enters every season with high hopes of winning big. That could be the main reason that he got a shout out in the song "All I Do Is Win"
Yet, Davis is one of the owners faced with some of the biggest problems like our featured JaMarcus Russell and formerly Lane Kiffin, whom he despised.
Here are some of the funnier tweets of Al Davis:
"Inception" isn't as funny when you know that's how Johnny Jolly got JaMarcus on the purple drank."
"My death is going to make George Steinbrenner's death look like an idiot."
"Going to be devastating when we discover Paul the Octopus was on the Cream."
Omar Minaya has to be fired eventually. But I'm guessing the longer he stays the more the funny tweets keep coming. He is a character on his fake Twitter account. He has hilarious Tweets here and there.
But when something goes wrong with the Mets, Fauxmar is the first one to tweet about it. The wacky things that he can fit in 140 characters will have baseball fans dying of laughter, but Mets fans hanging their heads.
The sad reality is that he may in fact be thinking this way most of the time.
"Jon Niese's uncle was interviewed by Burkhart, whose 'Doesn't that make you his Aunt?' intro cast an awkward pall over the ensuing 2 mins."
"R.A. Dickey improved the team's record to 19-9 in games he hasn't started. #churchofdickey"
"Ollie finally stepped up and offered to take Johan under his wing."
"Seeing a Mets #11 at 2B always makes me think of '86. But instead of the "Teufel Shuffle", it's now the "Tejada Lambada""
"Alright, Mook, you're on the clock. Take Nelson Figueroa just like we talked about just so I can release his @#$% again."
Jay Cutler has been made fun of all over the place from South Park to now Twitter. He has also been made out to possibly been the biggest d-bag in all of the NFL. He has a ton of up-side and potential, yet at times shows that he can be bad too.
The fake account stays true to some of Jay Cutler's true nature of being a very nasty player. His tweets are graphic and sometimes cross the line. Don't say you were not warned!
"As a QB, I can tell you that defense wins games...and cases against rape charges."
"I bet when Chris Henry found out that TO replaced him in Cincinnati, he fell off the truck in his grave."
"I wear a Luchador mask for 2 reasons: 1) To bang fat chicks. And B) So fat chicks won't know it's me banging them."
"The next World Cup should be played by third world countries with the prize being the AIDS vaccine. Haha, just kidding, they're all dying."
"The Netherlands hasn't been this disappointed since anything."
On the 2010 World Cup Final "Joran Vander Sloot would have killed three girls in the time it takes to end this game."
"Whichever team loses will be eliminated from the United Nations." - On the World Cup Final
"Who wants to play my skin vuvuzela?"
The list goes on and on! Check out his page to see some of the more graphic ones.
Michael Kay has had to assure fans on the air in the broadcast booth that he does not have a Twitter account. He says that he gets a ton of emails about things that he supposedly said on Twitter.
But in fact, Michael Kay is being played by a very funny Yankee fan. Well, at least a Michael Kay fan.
Kay is known for his saying "Hey Fans!" and every tweet by the fake account starts off that way. Ain't that funny. He comes up with great puns here and there.
During games, he can get annoying as sometimes other fans have to tell him to pipe down as he is on the air. But he just keeps on Tweeting.
Here are some of his funnier and cooler tweets:
"Hey Fans! Derek Jeter is producing a new Broadway show. My early review -- OH WHAT A PLAY BY JETER!"
"Hey fans! New York Yankees baseball is brought to you by ... Dr. Alan Hu, proctologist. HU BUTT!"
"Hey fans! Now, to give fans a treat, I'm heading down to the field to dive shirtless on the tarp! OH WHAT A FEAST FOR THE EYES!"
"Hey fans! OH! OH! OH WHAT A BUNT BY GRANDERSON! He's out."
"Hey fans! Now, a lot of announcers can't tell the difference between a changeup and curve ball. They're called soccer announcers."
I'm always open to suggestions, questions, comments, and feedback! Tell me what you thought of some of these fake Tweets and their accounts.
