To everyone who saw this last night and thought of us, thanks! Nicky Backstrom joined Twitter and the DC-area power gird promptly failed as fangirls crashed the mainframe. I think Nicky joined now because he has the best profile photo of any Washington Capital.
Or it could be because I got my Backstrom shirt in the mail yesterday, and I was listening to Robyn in the car. Obviously.
I may have sent a series of texts that looked like: “Gator, Nicky joined Twitter. GATOR, HE JOINED TWITTER!!!” Then I calmed down, and laughed because NB was following 5 people and Mike wasn’t one of them. To his defense, neither were Ovi, Carlson, Knuble or Alzner. But still.
So far, Nicky is winning the grammatical battle for my heart. Anyone who uses that many exclamation points is going to fit in around here.
Now, the next time any sort of adult beverage is within reach, someone please take my phone away. ”Don’t Drink and Hockey” really means “Don’t Drink and Tweet at Hockey Players.”
We’ve been planning a post about players on Twitter, but the list grows so fast I can’t keep up. There’s an NHLPA “Player Tracker” app that supposedly runs all their Tweets but I don’t think it’s current. Anyone have suggestions?
