I joined Twitter today. Can't really say why other than my career is internet marketing, so I need to be involved in all this stuff. Even the latest "killer aps" that ultimately seem meaningless and short-lived.
I couldn't help myself and began following Coach Sark (UW coach Steve Sarkisian if you just got out of bed from a 10-year snooze). Good God folks, I'm sitting at my desk laughing out loud. I give you some samples from yesterday's practice (most are written by an intern or something while Sark is on tweeting his whistle):
4/8 11:27 a.m. - "Compliance and staff meeting this morning. Cannot wait for practice, hope to see you out there. GO DAWGS!"
Survey says: Based on the early track record, I'm guessing this was the inaugural meeting of the UW compliance group. Also guessing coach Sark "forgot" that playing the Washington fight song during the passing out of the meeting doughnuts is a violation of human decency.
4/8 12:15 p.m. - "D-line getting some good work in."
Survey says: Hooray for that. There's a game with Idaho on the horizon - if the D-line can hang in for more than a quarter, the Dawgs might win.
4/8 12:15 p.m. - "Four square just got way more intense."
Survey says: Check that last comment, the Dawgs are playing four square. Idaho's going to win.
P.S. My daughters would absolutely kick some purple and gold Husky ass at four square.
4/8 1:15 p.m. - "Get on the football."
Survey says: It's a phrase Washington players will hear a lot this fall. Mostly when they're on offense.
4/8 1:15 p.m. - "There is a ton of energy on this football field."
Survey says: Don't tell the government. They'll probably try to tax you, further setting your stadium renovation project behind.
4/8 1:15 p.m. - "Fouch throws TD in 7 on 7."
Survey says: Note to coach... Call LSU. See if Les Miles is willing to play 7-on-7. Backups only.
4/8 1:30 p.m. - "Jose our equipment specialist is fired up about the practice today."
Survey says: What...??? The 2009 mantra from Seattle = Jake Locker is healthy, Sark's the man and our chief jock washer is fired up, so we're definitely back.
BTW - as of today, more than 2,400 people follow this garbage (I was unable to verify whether Ted Bundy was one of those). To say Husky nation is desperate for a return to glory - or even to five wins - would be a gross understatement.
