Twitter Tuesday...September 22, 2009

Last week, The American Mustache Institute announced that the headliner for this year's 'Stache Bache will be the one and only John Oates. Now, I have to admit, when Dr. Aaron Perlut first mentioned that he had been talking with Oates I wondered to myself..."I thought he died, like, five years ago."

Wrong John(ny) Oates. Thankfully, the one coming to the St. Louis-based event is very, VERY much alive!

Still don't know what Twitter Tuesday is? Don't waste Google's time...click the link.




As the season winds down...the tone of the chatter among the players (and former players) I follow changes dramatically.

stevefinley: September is the gut check month separating the contenders from the pretenders! Always one of my favorite months of the season!!


JoeNathan36: 15 games left in regular season. 1st game with detroit had a lot of energy from the fans. makes for fun atmosphere. keep it up yall!


NickSwisher: big series. 2 great teams going at it. These are the series you play for. Let's do the damn thing


jonadkins96: HUGE win for the Giants Nation tonight. Hell I thought we were at home with how loud you guys were! Awesome...Keep the support coming!


str8edgeracer: If that's what playoff baseball feels like, I'm in



And for old time's sake...here's another keeper from Twitter Tuesday favorite CJ Nitkowski.

CJNitkowski: I've been on a funeral home website for 10 mins to get their address. The background music is incredibly depressing but I can't turn it off.





If you took The Hall's advice and followed Astros County you were inundated today with thoughts on the firing of Cecil Cooper.

AstrosCounty: A volatile look back at a volatile 2009 for Cecil Cooper: http://bit.ly/pttD8

For some reason...they weren't the only ones with something to say.

jellius: thinks Cecil Cooper got a raw deal!

LanceZierlein: Now that cecil cooper is gone, the astros can get started being awesome!

gunans: Dear Cecil Cooper, the world will never know what kind of manager you are. That's what happens when you only have two Major League pitchers.

spencer_josh: the astros season is sure to turn around now that they have fired cecil cooper...why do this 150 games in? he should have been fired sooner

medalov: This is for Cecil Cooper. Poor guy, Prince takes his Brewers RBI record, his team gets swept and he gets fired

jraythegreat: Cecil Cooper era is over. I'll miss his confused facial expressions in the dugout. Replaced by Dave Clark...Jack Clark...Clark Griswold?

peteinhou: The Astros fired manager Cecil Cooper today. Cooper was under the impression he got fired in June. This explains a lot...




Since I brought up The American Mustache Institute in the lead...it only stands to reason that I suggest you follow them. So...head on over to your Twitter (or what have you), call up Mustache Talk and get to following!

Also, it needs to be mentioned that if you want to take part in nominating someone for the Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year Award...you have until October 2.

Have someone you think everyone should follow? Perhaps you yourself have read some interesting tweets in the past week…drop me a line or leave a comment below. See you next Tuesday!


BallHype: hype it up!

Oh Jesus, we at the American Mustache Institute -- the bravest organization in the history of mankind behind only the U.S. military and post-Jim Henson Muppets -- appreciate your patronage.
