Your Weekend In Tweets: 10.8.12 Edition
Sports fans have gone Gnarls Barkley-crazy.

Some of y’all done lost y’all minds. Yup, I’m looking squarely at the fans in Athens, GA who vandalized the home of a collegiate athlete, because the Dawgs lost a football game. I’m also looking at the Braves fans in Atlanta who threw bottles on the field for over 20 minutes and the fans in Kansas City who cheered an injured Matt Cassel. Pump the brakes, people! Thankfully, though, there were lots of great sporting moments this weekend that remind us why we love these games.
UGA fans have jumped the shark.
Came to a house that was egged and rolled. Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together.— Christian Robinson™ (@crob45) October 7, 2012
More fans behaving badly, maybe it’s a Georgia thing.

Thank you for all the prayers & supportI'm ok and I think after all the testing I will play next week.— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) October 7, 2012
That was a selfish play by the LT Gaither in my opinion. U know your hurt and can't move......get out the game!!— Chris Harris (@ChrisHarrisNFL) October 8, 2012
The honeymoon is over.
Interesting how when replacement refs make a bad call they're crucified by the media, but when the regular refs do it, nothing is said. Lol— Lorenzo Neal (@LorenzoNeal) October 8, 2012
But y’all wanted the real refs back.
The refs are destroying this game!— Tony Gonzalez (@TonyGonzalez88) October 8, 2012
E-40 is an Oakland guy, but I’d rep the 49ers right now, too.
Congratulations and Get Well Soon, Chuck.

If it ain't broke...
That thing that Jeter does where he doesn't swing and sticks his butt out like the ball is close and it's not. #cantstandit— Ashley Battle (@The_Battle_Zone) October 8, 2012
Why weren’t you at the game?
Congrats to @drewbrees & his teammates on breaking Unitas' record. Amazing accomplishment by great QB & leader. We’re proud of you, Drew— Roger Goodell (@nflcommish) October 8, 2012
NASCAR drivers are always selling their sponsors.
This was awesome.

Win as a team, lose as a team.
Man enough to admit I messed The game up... Put it on my shoulders I can handle it.— Willismcgahee (@WillisMcGahee) October 8, 2012
They blew that out of the water.
Remember when ESPN said "Texas is the best defense WVU will have played since LSU last year" .... 45 points later.— A.J. Francis (@The_Franchyze) October 8, 2012
The bandwagon is full.
I'm thinking the Reds are a pretty good baseball team.— Maury Brown (@BizballMaury) October 8, 2012
There are other ways to lose. I’m sure your team can find them.
Losing the way we do I just don't get it. Makes me sick. Back at work tomorrow getting ready for the Steelers. Still a long season ahead!!!— Colin McCarthy (@COLINMcCARTHY52) October 8, 2012
It’s better than nothing at all.
Before walk, Nick Swisher was 1 for 31 w/runners in scoring position in postseason. Now? Oh yeah, still 1 for 31. #walksdontcount— Joe Posnanski (@JPosnanski) October 8, 2012
Bronson balled out.
Getting 21 outs from Bronson Arroyo was exactly what Dusty Baker needed after needing his pen to get 26 last night.— Dan Evans (@DanEvans108) October 8, 2012
