Twitter Tuesday: Tommy Lasorda

If you've been following Twitter Tuesday at all, you know that the prevous incarnation had a weekly "The Wisdom of Tommy Lasorda". Well, folks, I've been waiting a long time to say it...the wisdom is back, baby!

Simply put, Lasorda is one of the best people to follow on Twitter. Hands down. From his random pictures to his even more random references...the guy is awesome.

Plus, dude has had his picture taken with everyone!

TWITTER HANDLE: @TommyLasorda

SAMPLE TWEETS:

I like Connie's Pizza in Chicago!

On May 10, 1996 I managed my 3000th game. We won in 12 innings.

Did you know that the studio SportsCentral uses now used to be for the lagoon in Gilligan's Island?

I have met seven U.S. Presidents during my life.

If you need a haircut in NY go to Spiotta on 38&7 and ask for Rocky. Italian barbers are the best!

But nothing, I mean NOTHING could have prepared me for the back-to-back gems from this past weekend.

On this day in 1948 I was pitching for the Schenectady Blue Jays. I struck out 25 batters in 15 inn

We were playing the Amsterdam Rug Makers and I struck out their left fielder six times

I'm not even sure those are real teams, people! That said...you've got to follow Tommy Lasorda. The old man is as entertaining as Jose Canseco is bi-polar and somehow, Lasorda has 326,000 LESS followers...and two or three less personalities.


BallHype: hype it up!

The Amsterdam Rugmakers was a team because my dad, Edward Gregg Scott played on the team in the 40's. That's when he met my mom!!!
