Burnt Toast

The Greatest Tweets in the History of the Internet* (*Over the last 24 hours)

A Blog Named After A Dead Writer Opened

@ESPN: The @SportsGuy33’s new website is officially open for business: http://www.grantland.com/

The mad refresh rush made Black Friday look calm. I camped out online for hours, just so I could say I went the first day. I laughed, I cried, I did not masturbate.

@EDSBS: I only have one piece of advice to @sportsguy33 on launching a successful internet website: you need some more cat pictures, man.

Cat pictures, midgets, videos of fat people falling, hot chicks pulling pranks, and slideshows. If Grantland.com has slideshow of a blond hottie jumping out of a closet with a cute kitten scaring a fat person into falling into midget tomorrow, it will end the interwebs.

@DarrenRovell: Grantland.com (The 1st 5 hours review) 160 votes: 43.8% As Good As I Expected, 29.4% Worse Than I Expected, 26.8% Better Than I Expected

Bill Simmons is basically the Mark Cuban of sports writing. Hated by so many that are secretly envious of his life. There was a stretch in my life (Before entering the Sports Media world), that the biggest highlight of my week was The SportsGuy’s Friday article. Yes, I admit sad, but very few writers killed it time and time again. The virtual doors opened today, and it felt like the first time I visited an IKEA. It was exciting, I had no idea what to expect, and half of the stuff I didn’t understand what it was used for. I liked the footnotes to stories, outside of that, nothing stood out on the first day.

Twitter Potpourri

@RobGronkowski: Yo @BretLockett26 I hope the rumors are true! I call next! Lmao

Bret Lockett, a former Patriots player,  claims to have sexted with Kim Kardashian while she was engaged to Kris Humphries. I just can bring myself to think she would do something like this. KIM KARDASHIAN IS A SAINT, A SAINT!!!!. Next you are going to tell me that JJ Barea is still sexting with an ex girlfriend while he’s still dating the former Miss Universe……(drops mic)

@MicheleSteele: Dirk Nowitzki tells me why he’s not a “brand”: “the thing is this, I always wanted to be a basketball player, nothing more. Nothing less.”

You know Dirk, this kind of shit is making it really difficult for me to hope you have a series ending injury. Can’t you be involved in some kind of crazy ass scandal again? This whole playing basketball like Larry Bird and likable crap is not going cut it for me.

@ESPNSTATInfo: Roberto Luongo has now been pulled after allowing 12 goals in last 2 games…3rd time he has been pulled this postseason. 

Roberto Luongo is becoming the Rick Ankiel of NHL Goaltending. Stat of the night is still from @NotTheFakeSVP: “In the Last 3 days, Bruins 12, Lebron 9. (OUCH CHARLIE!)

@Mengus22: Kentucky’s future quarterback is nicknamed “Bookie”. This is presented without comment.

Guess his parents lost a bet?

Gilbert Arenas May or May Not Have Live Tweeted A Blind Date:
