As I watch Odell Beckham get hundreds/thousands of favs and retweets every time he tweets ANYTHING, it makes me happy and sad.  Happy that my favorite NFL player has developed a huge following on social media.  And sad because I will never have that type of love from the social media masses despite basically living my entire life on Twitter these days.  So I did a little experiment.  I waited until ODB tweeted something out and then copied/pasted his tweet as my own.  The results are above.  Almost 1400 retweets and 1400 favs for Beckham against my 1 retweet and 5 favs.  Odell just took me to Pound Town.

But in the words of everybody’s favorite mascot head wearer (Lee Corso), “NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND!”.  As of the writing of this blog, Odell Beckham has 404,000 followers (Twitter lists it as 404K to estimate because that is A LOT OF GOD DAMN PEOPLE.  I am jealous of everyone that has a K in their follower count).  I have 3,060 followers (and I love literally each and every one of them.  Especially the bots and Twitter Instagram hoes that just look for follow backs).  So by my math:

1 in every 290 of ODB’s followers retweeted his tweet, while 1 in every 295 of his followers favorited his tweet.

1 in every 3,060 of my followers retweeted my tweet, while 1 in every 612 of my followers favorited my tweet.

Looks like I lost again….

But wait!!!

Odell Beckham tweeted out his tweet 39 seconds before I did.  So I still have time to make up the difference.

 

Who Tweeted It Better Verdict: Too close to call

Usually following Frank Isola on Twitter is a chore for Knicks fans. The dude oozes negativity and one-liners clowning the Knicks. But after news of Anthony Mason’s passing, Isola did a good job getting some quotes and stories about Mason and those tough 90s Knicks teams.  R.I.P. Mase.

ZINNNNNNNNNG!  Just another example of how the AFC South is a dog eat dog world.  You think you are safe from getting called out on Twitter just because you are the two most boring teams in the NFL’s most irrelevant divisions?  Pshhhh.  Gotta keep your head on a swivel down in the Dirty Dirty.

Imagine Ken Whisenhunt finds out about this tweet as he is scouting players for the 2015 draft?  Just awful.  He has to fight Gus Bradley and defend the Titans honor, right?  Or the Titans can try to save face by dropping a “jerk store” line.  But there may have already been too much damage to save the Tennessee franchise.  #RIPTitans.

If we are being honest, that tweet is the second best thing the Jags franchise has ever done, behind installing this (likely) STD-infested pool in their stadium.

Eater- Social media sites are abuzz with the news that Taco Bell has blacked out its online presence in an effort to promote its new app, rumored to be launching later today. Taco Bell changed its Twitter handle to @totallynothere so as to make it appear that it has erased all content. Its official Twitter account has been blacked out. Content on the company’s Facebook page has been deleted and all images have been blacked out. On Instagram, Taco Bell released a series of black and white text-based images with the hashtag #onlyintheapp. Taco Bell’s website, a hub for its menu, franchisee information, press releases, and investor news, has also been blacked out.

Rumors have been swirling about Taco Bell’s new app since news of its forthcoming release was announced earlier this year. Though fans may be able to connect to each other via the mobile app, its unlikely to replace Taco Bell’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook presence for good. The app will push Taco Bell ahead of some of its competitors by allowing users to order food ahead, and by notifying users of when their order is ready to be picked up. Payment options will also be streamlined through the app, though its unclear if Taco Bell has partnered with a related service such as Square or Apple Pay or if it has designed its own payment processing system.

This is an absolute game changer for fast food.  I always found it fascinating that people could get stoned and make a rational decision at Taco Bell.  Whenever I go there sober, I turn into a pile of mush just staring at all the options on the menu.  Finally I just enter freak mode and order a chalupa, a Dorito taco, and a few random sides.  Now you can pick as many items as you would like right as the THC is entering your brain.  What a time we live in.  There are three clear winners from this announcement:

1. Taco Bell (duh)- More time to order = more food ordered.  It really is that simple.  Have you ever ordered Chinese food with a group of people?  It goes from everyone ordering their own meal to just a complete food orgy.

2. Big and Tall stores- These places are about to gain a bunch of some new customers because of #1.  Winter weather + Taco Bell mobile ordering = Biggest bulking season ever.

3. Plumbers- I don’t think I really need to explain this one.  But instead of blacking out their social media, I think they should have given away black toilet seats.  It is about to get very real in bathrooms across our great nation.

I have been weighing the pros and cons of this all day.

Pro: I can give Mark Jackson a piece of my mind for the shenanigans he pulled during the old Knicks/Pacers rivalry.

Con: My phone number is on Twitter for anyone who wants to see it.

Pro: If I buy the single enough time, maybe I can get a Retweet out of him and get some more followers.

Con: I would then have a bunch of worthless MP3 files on my computer/phone.

Verdict: U2 added music to my phone without asking.  Mark Jackson asked politely and was a pure gentleman on the phone.  Go get Desiree Coleman Jackson Kadesh’s new single today.

The Cowboys have already won the 2014 NFL season.  Do they have a 34 year-old quarterback coming off of back surgery and a defense that resembles Roger Dorn at the hot corner?  Sure.  But that didn’t stop Jerry Jones from hijacking the season before it even started.  While everyone else is pouring ice buckets on each other and raising money for a great cause, Jerry is canoodling with 20 somethings behind his wife’s back and inviting 90s legends to training camp.  Your move, Mr. Mara.  Just realize you will need some combination of Kelly Kapowski, Rod Belding, Chris Calloway, and Ron Dayne to even touch the hot fire that Jerruh is throwing out at Oxnard.

By the way, what a power move by Dennis Haskins going with the @MrBelding Twitter handle.  I bet his family and friends just call him Belding and he stopped fighting it after the 204,274th failed audition.  All Belding, all the time.  As it should be.

PS- There is a 0.0% chance that T.O. knows who Mr. Belding is.  Owens probably thought that he was posing for a picture with Chris Berman so he could get into the good graces of ESPN and get a post football life job.  Sorry Terrell, not gonna happen.  Being a legit asshole for your entire career gets you two things:

1. The cold shoulder from real media outlets

2. Baf reality TV shows
