MMT: Kendrick Perkins eats at Waffle House. Of course he does.

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend full of Super Bowl watching and Super Bowl meal-eating and Super Bowl tweet-reading. It really is amazing how much better these Big Events are now that Twitter is a thing. It feels like you are sitting in a room watching the game all the cool and funny people you wish you knew in real life. At least, that’s what I tell myself. I live a sad life.

This is Monday Morning Tweets. You can find them after the jump. There will be no tweets about the Super Bowl. Mostly because I wrote this post before the game, even though you are reading it on Monday. I know, I just blew your mind. Technology is amazing. I hear Apple is even working on a telephone that doesn’t drop phone calls every few minutes. I’ll believe that when I see it, though.

I don’t know why, but for some reason the Waffle House seems like the absolute perfect Kendrick Perkins restaurant. I can just imagine him being a regular at one of them, always sitting next to the same old guys in overalls and talking about tractors. But he needs to be careful about getting too excited about Waffle House. Some things are more important, right Vanity?

Hey, speaking of Vanity Perkins, Steve Lackmeyer decided to live-tweet the city council meeting on Tuesday. It did not go well. In a series of tweets I managed to grab before they were deleted, an increasingly exasperated Lackmeyer let us know that yes, city council meetings are as boring as we imagined they would be.

Sounds fascinating. At this point, Lackmeyer wanted to bring in the big guns.

Personally, I hope Steve Lackmeyer continues to live-tweet these city council meetings. There’s very little in life more entertaining than watching someone lose their mind in real time.

This tweet, combined with one from meteorologist Troy Christenson makes me think that maybe the social media problems KFOR has been having recently are not in fact problems at all, it’s just that it’s all tailored for their audience.

It’s sad, but I can commiserate. A few weeks ago, a group of friends and I were out at dinner, and all of the sudden I realized that we had been spending the entire meal talking about various do-it-yourself home repair projects. I was like, “holy shit this is a conversation adults should be having, not me and my friends.” I have no idea what has happened to my life. It was like that scene in Old School where Frank is talking about how nice his weekend was going to be, since he’s going to Home Depot. I kinda felt like we should all bong a few beers to try and recapture the glory days.

Story of my life :(

This week I searched Twitter for the words “Oklahoma” and “crazy.” Predictably, most were about the weather, but that last guy down there has me curious with what exactly is going on in his life.

The Jim Traber Loves Exclamation Points Tweet Of The Week!!!!!

If you think it can’t get any sadder than Trabes using Twitter to beg Larry the Cable guy to come on his show, then you are wrong, because I present to you Jim Traber using Twitter to beg to have his account verified.

Also, that account Jim was begging to be verified by was a hoax.

The Dean Blevins Memorial Weekly Tweet From Dean Blevins

Speaking of hoaxes, hopefully Deano will stop clicking on suspicious DM’s sometime soon:

    • The sad thing about Traber being such a complete tool is the astronomical number of people that do not realize it.

      • In all honesty, he’s not the only one:
        Steely-Self-Absorbed narcissist
        Lump-if it isn’t scripted-babblling incoherent mess
        Curtis-Mr. I’m going to tell you for five minutes, what I’m about to tell you.
        Al-the man is down to about 15 minutes a day of lucid, accurate comments.
        Dean-See Jim Traber above
        They should rename the station: “THE TOOLSHED”

        If it weren’t for Mark Rogers and Sam Mayes my radio dial would never see the sportsanimal again.

        • I’m confused as to why you even bother listening to the sports animal any more. I gave that up last year and the AM side is MUCH better.

        • I turn the station when the following happen: Lump talks about his wife, fart jokes, writing a book, burning down a house, or just about anything anymore. When Curtis talks about a game that happened the night before because he thinks that whatever happened yesterday will happen every day from here on out. When Traber starts talking about his tweets and the guys he locks out, or anything political. Or Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Whenever Fat Jack is on the air. When Cary Murdock starts talking about sniffing 17 and 18 year old’s jocks. Every time Steely or Curtis talk about how something screwed them out of their lock of the week pick. I liked Al and Jim’s music deal for a while but like The Fonz that jumped the shark months ago. Hmmm. seems I’ve been changing the channel a lot recently. That narrows it down to Pat Jones and Mark Rogers and some fill in between.

  1. The best part about Traber trying to get his account verified: @privateverified is a fake account….the real one is @verified. #Classic

  2. Steve Lackmeyer, please shut up. You are not a real reporter if you whine about covering a city council meeting. Play some games on your phone instead of complaining about the pace of a city council meeting. Seriously.

  3. I listened to Sports Animal for a while, when I turn it back I can predict the show’s content. Yes Jim, you played professional baseball. Yes Jim, you’re a HUGE fan of God. Yes, Al, when you don’t agree with something you scream and yell like a 5-year-old until everyone just shuts up because they’re tired of arguing with you.
    Lather, rinse, repeat.
