Twitter Tuesday...October 13, 2009

Yawn. The first round of the playoffs is over...three sweeps. Last week, I was all gung ho to get this postseason started. Now...I am waiting for pitchers and catchers to report.

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

I like what TBS is doing (and no, I don't mean the "Lopez Tonight" promos)...they have their studio crew up to speed on Twitter. Granted, some of the guys are more into it than the others, but any way you slice it...they are entertaining to follow.

TurnerSportsEJ (Ernie Johnson): in the viewing room with cal, eck and boomer watching games, keeping score, good times

MLBonTBSRon (Ron Darling): day off 2day burgers later at white horse tavern

MLBonTBSCal (Cal Ripken Jr.): waiting for Eck to decide what we are eating for lunch. Watching baseball stuff.

MLBonTBSEck (Dennis Eckersley): my dream world series would be the Marlins vs. the Tampa bay rays so I could sit in the sun

MLBonTBSCal (Ripken): I was talking to Rick Mahorn down the hall at NBA TV and almost missed Teixeira's HR.

MLBonTBSBoomer (David Wells): ernie does look like a squirrel huh

Even though the St. Louis Cardinals made a pretty quick exit this player seems to have made a pretty lasting impression on everyone who witnessed the majesty of his lip curtain.

Brendan Ryan.

So, not only is Ryan a candidate for the American Mustache Institute's Robert Goulet Memoroal Mustached American of the Year Award (you can vote HERE)...but he is also the top of this week's "The Buzz".

teenagesleuth: Exactly what is this look Brendan Ryan has going on and what are his intentions?

jasonmulgrew: belated kudos to Brendan Ryan for going for the homosexual vaudevillian magician look - and totally nailing it.

shelley1005: Brendan Ryan - that stache, coupled with that bald head...are you sure you aren't a creepy trucker serial killer?

mchamberlin: Is Brendan Ryan from the 1890s? Or 1973?

NEWS25LanceWilk: Brendan Ryan looks like a Mario Bros.

sandrinistrivia: Hey, Brendan Ryan. Have you ever thought of becoming a cop instead of a ballpayer? I'd hate for that moustache to go to waste.

m1strC: Brendan Ryan looks like he rode to the game on top of an old-timey bicycle with the giant front wheel.

scratchbomb: did Brendan Ryan get his mustache from Deadwood's yard sale? or did he forget to take it off after barbershop quartet practice?

nerd_alert: Anyone else find it impossible to watch Brendan Ryan and not think "I will drink your milkshake"?

thepreston: I wish I had a mustache like brendan ryan of the cardinals.

Since I went WAY overboard with the Brendan Ryan love (or hate?) in "The Buzz", it is only fitting that I suggest you follow two (yes, two) sites dedicated to Cardinal love.

First, check out my friend Dan. He's C70 on Twitter...Cardinal70 on the web. Next, Nick's site Pitchers Hit Eighth is loaded full of Redbird goodness...if you are into that sort of thing. He is also on Twitter at, oddly enough, PitchersHit8th.

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!

It's so sad that the only satisfaction I get as a Cubs fan is to watch the hated Redbirds get swept in the first round.
