It’s been a week since Jim Traber quit Twitter after a mysterious tweet from his wife to one of his followers, and sadly it seems we are not any closer to cracking the case. For some reason Traber thinks we’re behind it, but we’re not. Who was @SportsGirl04Me? Why was Julie Traber so mad? Will Jim ever return to Twitter? And, hey, what about Perfect Strangers? Remember that show?
Sorry, lost my train of thought. This week we’re returning to a much more traditional version of Monday Morning Tweets, but if anyone happens to have any more information of Trabergate 2013, you know where to find us.
This week’s tweets are below the fold.

I think I speak for most men when I say that this isn’t really something I was hoping Emily Sutton would be taking notice of….
This game sucks and my wife and kids are at Disney world, who wants to go toilet paper Sally Kern’s house at midnight?

Awesome. I wish Andrew Rice was still in the legislature. If they’re gonna all act like middle-schoolers anyway, we might as well embrace the fun part of middle school.
Wow, Kelly! That shirt sure is something… fb.me/1KH2h3aAo

Say what you want about Kelly Ogle, the man can rock the “cool dad” look like nobodies business. You can’t help but picture him standing behind the barbeque grill cooking up some hamburgers, telling the teenagers very slightly risque jokes and ribbing them with his elbow afterwards. He might even earnestly bust out the finger guns from time to time.
@mcgraw2424the announcers are EMPLOYED and therefore PAID by the Thunder.C’mon…what’s not to understand about that?
— Bob Barry, Jr. (@bbjsports) February 16, 2013
The man is right! The Thunder announcers are nothing more than glorified PR flacks who happen to be pretty good at describing basketball games. Nothing wrong with that, although it makes for a pretty uninteresting broadcast if you ask me. They aren’t objective newsmen practicing journalism, they are fans of the team. I don’t think Brian Davis and Grant Long really even try to pass themselves off as journalists. They aren’t, say, the sports director at a local news station.
Oh, by the way, here’s BBJ’s Twitter background right now:
I get Brian Davis’ excuse for being a homer. What’s BBJ’s?

Most of our readers would probably say that nonsense-anything with Joleen Chaney is probably fun. Since this is Patrick’s territory, I had him write a response to this:
I’d go with secret lover.
This week I decided to search Twitter again for the words “Oklahoma” and “smells,” because the number of people compelled to tweet about Oklahoma’s scent never ceases to amuse me.
Awkward Twitter Conversations With Linda Cavanaugh
Twitter is revolutionary. It’s almost hard to imagine how we all ever managed to function without being able to have discussions like this over the internet.
The “If Jim Traber Were Still Tweeting This Is What He Might Say” tweet of the week:
Days since Regular Jim Traber deleted his Twitter account: 7
The Dean Blevins Memorial Weekly Tweet From Dean Blevins
Confirmed. Kittle out. Hard one for Stoops. Had to do it. #sooners
— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 13, 2013
FWIW, I went back and checked Dean’s tweets since the bowl loss, and I can’t find any mention of him saying that firing Bruce Kittle is something that absolutely had to be done. I’m just saying, it’s awfully easy to pat Bob Stoops on the back after-the-fact.
That’s all for this week. Follow me on Twitter here. Good bye!
