Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves: The Twitter Experience

New, comments

The Cavs lost by 29 and everything sucked. Well, not everything sucked, just the Cavs and almost anything related to them.

This is audio of a UGA fan calling a radio station, bawling his eyes out. I'm not Dr. Phil (Obviously, my name is Mourt ya dingus) but I am pretty sure Cavs twitter is in a similar spot.

Let me get a few things out of the way.

1.) This is going to be a trail of tears. The mood was awful all night. We're gonna see caps, all caps, stocking caps, and sno caps.

2.) Mike shouldn't be fired, Anthony Bennett will be fine, and shame on you for not learning about making pronouncements on long seasons so early during Indians season.

Alright, let's get to these tweets.

This is how it started, so, OBVIOUSLY, only good things were to come.

(related: when the ball hit Allie's head, a passer by, perhaps too curious for his own good, looked into the window of young David Zavac. David, oblivious to his new found voyeur, sat in nothing but a leopard print Snuggie, drinking a glass of some snobby St. Louis Cardinal type wine. Furiously rewinding and playing back to tape, a single tear running down his left cheek, hunting the man who had thrown astray the orb that struck the object of his obsession)

Energized by the late loss of Kevin Martin for the Wolves, the Cavs made a statement early. That statement was that they wanted to kick the crap out of the Cavs.

I have been to the bottom. I have seen the struggle. I know the pain. This is actually very close to resembling it.

So yeah, I don't have the heart to look at the game anymore. It was awful, let's life our spirits by looking at a hyperbole tweet.

I mean.... I take what I can get at this point.

So, in the small victory department. I didn't see anybody crying about Dion Waiters shot selection tonight. We done good.

Friday night the Bobcats come to town. Al Jefferson is back. You may recognize him from such feats as letting anyone who can dribble a basketball score, and twisting an ankle. They also have Cody Zeller, who is the skinnier softer version of Tyler Zeller with better combine numbers to make people forget about some of it.
