Jon Scheyer
"I really hope andre johnson doesn't get suspended! I got him on my fantasy team! Plus, he won that fight... And the game haha"

Alex Brown
"I am not talking about comparing vodka and tequila but what do u think is the best vodka and tequila? Straight as a shot or mixed."

How I See It: The brand that prevents Roger Goodell from suspending anyone who drinks too much. If this brand exists, let Ben Roethlisberger know.

Bryant McKinnie
"Just had Dejavu what's that mean?"

How I See It: If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

Curt Schilling

Kevin Weekes
"RT @justinbieber Yo chillin with @kevinweekes NHL goalie.. Hes tight! follow him."

How I See It: In related news, Weekes gained 7,000 followers today, but lost even more respect.

Warren Sapp
"Wake Up U Mean?? Proof reading Is a Must!! Smdh RT @j_holland7: Walk up and get on your feet and let's do something great and unique"

How I See It: Warren Sapp, by far the scariest officer in the Grammar Police Squad.

Joe Haden
"Just finished the first practice!! We got better 2day!!!"

How I See It: Reminder: You are the Browns, you can only get better. It would have been noteworthy had the team proven the theory that they could possibly get worse.

John Calipari
"We now have Crazy Bandz available. Collect, trade, enjoy: ^DP"

How I See It: Bracelets the shape of John Calipari? This has officially gotten way out of hand, no pun intended.

Bryant McKinnie
"Just left the locker room, oh & i ran n2 a old friend when i was leaving. Lol! figure it out!"

How I See It: I think he's talking about Brett Favre? Favre's back. Let the mania begin ... again.

Kirk Morrison
"Just ran through the Jacksonville Airport like I was OJ Simpson in that car commercial back in the day. Barely made my flight. #sweating"

How I See It: If you ran as fast as O.J. drove white Broncos, you probably would've made your flight with time to spare.

Nick Collison
"U can imagine the horror of realizing you have "my humps" by black eyed peas on your ipod as shuffle plays the song #mustbeavirus"

How I See It: Probably the same horror one experiences when checking out your Twitter picture, Collison.

Meryl Davis
"The snooze button is the meanest invention ever~who gives sleeping people the option to continue doing so in 5 min increments? Stop teasing!"

How I See It: That's why you get an alarm clock with a nine-minute snooze. It makes waking up a little sweeter.

Bryant McKinnie
"I'm down here on the beach 4 a meeting! Its very hot out here 2day. I'm early 4 a change, the ppl r 15min away."

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.
