In a world of unjustified authoritative Tweets and people fooling their adult selves into hyper-seriousness, it is always refreshing to see people being funny and sarcastic on Twitter. Of course there are the accounts that everyone knows (professional athletes, @sportsguy33, etc), but I wanted to focus on some great sports Tweeters that you might not be following already.

Here are some of my favorites, along with some favorites from @SeatGeek’s followers on Twitter.

1. @edsbs

Why You Should Follow: A lot of great college football coverage plus funny and a conversationalist.

2. @drubner

3. @Nastinchka

@Nastinchka sports twitter

Why You Should Follow: @Nastinchka’s comedic range on Twitter extends far beyond just sports. Don’t let the arguably excessive use of capitalization fool you, she’s got her stuff down solid.

5. @MattRoth512

Why You Should Follow: He had me at “I get drunk and the talk about…” I mean there is really no way that could end badly. And then to top it all off with a bio pick chugging a canned beer and MMA coverage…yessir.

8. @EliFromBrooklyn

Does anyone know if the Winklevoss twins have taken credit for Twitter yet?

Why You Should Follow: @EliFromBrooklyn provides humor by himself, but RTs and shares some really funny stuff so there is always something entertaining coming through the stream.

Bonus: Might be following, but still funny

 

@TheBillWalton

Not since Shaq's atrocious portrayal of a genie in Kazaam have I witnessed a performance as dreadful as Mark Teixeira's cameo in Entourage.
Eli Manning has stated that he is in the same class as Tom Brady. Did they both enroll in the same Bikram Yoga class that I am unaware of?
