Lance Armstrong
"Walked out to get my morning paper and nearly busted my ass (and dropped my cup of java) on an ice patch. really?"

How I See It: Next time, pour your coffee on the ice patch and all injuries can be avoided.

How I See It: I'd rather have bad knees than a broken brain, but that's just me.

Greg Lemond
"Wishes my daughter a happy 21st Birthday today"

How I See It: She'd thank you, but she's probably too busy nursing her hangover from last night's rager. Not like that's from personal experience or anything.

Kawika Mitchell
"Forgot to give mention to the Buffalo Sabres coming into Atl and beating the Thrashers 4-1. Go Sabres!"

How I See It: At least one Buffalo team still knows how to win a game every once in a while.

Allison Baver
"Whenever I get confused or overwhelmed I go to the mall. Works wonders"

How I See It: Obsessed with the mall. Now that's a stereotype I can get behind.

John Daly
"I'm thinking Mannings got this game tonight--still mourning the Cowboy loss but celebrating my Hogs win!"

Donte Whitner

How I See It: Hey keep your head up, champ. At least you guys scored seven points!

Kevin Durant
"As long as the cowboys lost I'm good lol"

How I See It: Couldn’t agree with you more even if I tried. Well said.

Jonny Flynn
"Vick is ballin!!! Now let's see what they say now!!!"

Reggie Bush
""Sometimes you gotta go through Hell to get Heaven" –Maino"

How I See It: Yeah, I hear you, man. It must have been tough getting to the NFL. What did you have to do, work like two jobs to pay the tuition at USC?

"All UT athletes show best horns pic"

How I See It: Watch the Jew jokes, man. Tomorrow’s Yom Kippur.

Donte Green
"BMORE!! Block party 2morow on greenmount!! Homewood between 21st & 22nd street. Free food, music, games for da kids. Come thru! COS!"

"#ocnn news: watching espn's PTI on #primetime2go from my droid x by motorola"

How I See It: Darrelle! How can you afford a Droid! Oh right ... that contract you recently acquired.

Ronny Turiaf
"Happy Bday! RT @CabriniFdn: Hey Ronny, Can you please wish twins Nicky and Katey a happy birthday? They turn 10 today. Big Knicks fans!"

How I See It: Bad choice, Ronny. The Knicks haven’t made the Finals since 1999 and these kids were born in 2000. They’re obviously a curse.

Apolo Ohno
"Stuck in ATL airport..flight is at 9:30....where's the jet Benjamin!"

Kirk Morrison
"Rickey Henderson was my favorite athlete growing up. Holds MLB record for stolen bases at 1,406. Next is Lou Brock 939 #willneverbebroken"

How I See It: Thank you, Captain Obvious. Get a load of this: Barry Bonds holds the MLB record for most home runs with 762 and Hank Aaron is second with 755!

Pierre Garcon
"Video Coming Soon From The 1st Indianapolis Colts Bowling Tournament...You Know Who Won :-)"

How I See It: Gosh darn it. Is that five championships now for Adam Vinatieri?

Bernard Berrian

How I See It: Took you this long to find out about Brett Favre? Happens to the best of us.

How I See It: But that’s two ways -- and one of them isn’t even possible.

Greg Oden

Ndamukong Suh
"Vegas baby so much fun lookin forward to tonight, X/S should be crazy wit the boys"

How I See It: Looks like Suh is already learning how to be a professional athlete. Should he desire anything other than boys, he should just give Tiger a call.

Reggie Bush

How I See It: With no Kim, what exactly are you focusing on Reggie?

Bo Van Pelt

How I See It: Nothing quite like staring at your cabinet trying to decide what to have for dinner for 30 minutes only to realize that pasta is the only thing in there.

Rey Maualuga
"Where is Cincinnati Gardens"

How I See It: Firstly, I hope that's a beer garden otherwise Rey is no longer welcome back at USC. Secondly, Rey, you have a million billion dollars. If your car doesn't have a built in navigation system, there's this thing called the Internet where you can look up any destination and it tells you how to get there. Genius stuff really.

Mark Teahen
"Just realized why Fitzgerald is a better reciever than I am....thumbs, he has them."

How I See It:Yeah … he has them. So do I. I guess I’ll throw my name out there for Anquan Boldin’s replacement when he bolts town.

Reggie Bush
"Those were some great College games yesterday...I think the Northwestern/Auburn game might have been the best of the day maybe the year!"

How I See It: Agreed. Also, Reggie should audition for the kicking job for the Wildcats next season.

TJ Ford
"Tom Brady is Jason Kidd of football " greatness ""

How I See It: Of all the players you coulda chosen, you picked an over-the-hill, overrated point guard with Zero 'ships, comparing him to Tom Brady. Cool. Don't you play basketball?

Michael Waltrip
"Great news for Pres Obama. He watched football all weekend and tomorrow he will receive the heisman trophy!"

Reggie Bush

"$10.50 for a f-ing movie! No wonder were the only ones in the theater! FAME"

How I See It: I was ready to bash Kati for complaining on a pro athlete's salary - and for forgoing the 'e' in her name - but then I realized she plays in the Women's Professional Soccer league. F-ing movies!
