First and foremost, the Hlog got wind of Minnesota football coach Tim Brewster’s Twitter feed and Web site from our friends at http://www.blackheartgoldpants.com
Now, those gentlemen occasionally work a bit blue and once in a great while step over the line with a toe or two. OK, they do so every day, with all 10 toes in a synchronized stomp on what some prudes commonly call “good taste.”
But, great television programs like “Deadwood,” “The Sopranos,” and roasts of show biz superstars like Bob Saget and Larry the Cable Guy on Comedy Central were a bit off-color, too. That doesn’t mean they aren’t precious.
Let’s cut to the chase. The boys at blackheartgoldpants noted the three most-recent Twitter tweets (as of 12:01 a.m., Wednesday) from Coach Brew at, appropriately enough, http://twitter.com/play4brew
WINNING ON AND OFF THE FIELD EACH AND EVERY DAY IS WHAT CREATES A CHAMPION!
EACH GUY CONTROLS WHAT HE BRINGS TO THE TABLE EACH DAY ATTITUDE, EFFORT, TOUGHNESS AND PASSION NOT TAUGHT BUT BROUGHT!
JUST OFF THE FIELD FROM PRACTICE #1….GUYS SHOWED GREAT ATTITUDE AND EFFORT TODAY!
Coach Brew has obviously put aside the disappointment of his Gophers’ 42-21 loss to Kasnas in last December’s Insight Bowl, let alone the 55-0 loss his men suffered to Iowa in Minneapolis the month before.
One of several points the Blackhearts make bout Brewster’s posts:
He clearly doesn’t read the financial page: Coach Brew is referring to the Gophers’ new stadium as “The Bank” (a reference to stadium name sponsor TCF Bank). This, of couse, is in the face of a $700B federal bank bailout package. Let’s just say that when Minnesota blows another fourth quarter lead against Northwestern, we won’t have to go to far to find the “collapse” joke.
But the Hlog doesn’t want to get everyone in the Big Ten mad at it five months before football season starts. Two months ought to be more like it. But I digress.
What I’m trying to say is, Coach Brew has me fired up. So besides leading you to becoming one of Coach Brew’s Twitter followers, check him out at www.play4brew.com
I assume that page is for prospective recruits and not 30- or 40- or 60-year-olds who want to strap on the helmets and pads and help the Gophers win their first Big Ten championship since 1967. But, maybe it’s also for the world.
Oh, now I see Michigan Coach Rich Rodriguez is using Twitter, too. He’s at http://twitter.com/UM_CoachRod.
Ten Tweets in, it looks kind of dull. Step it up, Coach Rod. At least hit the “shift lock” key more often.
