Twitter Tuesday...September 8, 2009

We're past Labor Day which pretty much means two things...summer is over and my garbage will be picked up a day later. One thing that WON'T be late is Twitter Tuesday.

See what I did there?

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

On the heels of long weekend cookouts comes a chatter chock full of food references. Once again proving that baseball might not always be the first thing on the minds of some former and current ballplayers.

Sweendog9: Heading to breakfast on the beach! What a day!

Brum24: yesterday on my off day i got hooked on MAN vs. FOOD, reality show bout dude who crushes food! all i gotta say is WOW!

chopper63: Just drank my first coffee in over a month, and yes it was the biggest one they make

GrillCheese49: Ate a killer dinner at Obryki's with my brother in law. 2nd time to that place. Highly recommend it! Lets win the series tomorrow!

str8edgeracer: already thinking about tomorrow's raisin bran crunch breakfast...half off day, half travel day. going to find a crabby dinner in baltimore

And back by popular demand...more of CJNitkowski and his Korean adventures. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you're not following him already...please start.

"I wish I knew how to turn on the A/C in my room. There is an on/off button, I push it, the on light comes on & nothing happens."

"I was really thirsty & I opened my room door. Standing there was a hotel employee with 2 bottles of water."

"Was able to confirm what i already thought to be true at karaoke last night, if Jon Bon Jovi retires I would be a suitable replacement."

"For the first time in my career I am in a hotel room that does not have an outlet in the bathroom."

When Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell announced this past week that he had inoperable cancer I was compelled to bang out some thoughts here at The Hall...apparently some others took to Twitter.

GreggHenson: Ernie Harwell is the most gracious man I have ever experienced.

Willardradio: Ernie Harwell will be gone soon. Let's celebrate him while we still have him.

D1ane: so SAD to hear Ernie Harwell is sick......he's truly a class act, he'll be in my prayers. Get well Ernie.

sportsgalore09: I'm very sad to hear Ernie Harwell has cancer. He was and will always be my favorite announcer of all-time.

IslandBoyBob: Say a prayer for Ernie Harwell, 91 yrs old, voice of Detroit Tigers for 50 yrs or so, retired 7 yrs ago. He has inoperable cancer.

lorenzo_A: Someone, somewhere said this stick and ball thing could be a game... But it was God who said, "... only if Ernie Harwell broadcasts it."

Odds are you're one of the 5000+ already following Rob Neyer, but when a guy mentions me and helps generate some buzz for The Hall...he gets my support.

And since I am a huge advocate of reciprocation, I have to again remind everyone of my good friend FCPDavidAllan. David did a radio show this past week and also plugged The Hall a couple of times...please check out what he's all about over at Full Count Pitch.

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!
