Kenny Smith

Pat Perez
"Some great words on a WD40 can: Lubricates. Penetrates. Moisture. Grime. Adhesive. Corrosion. Flammable. Inhalation. Ventilated. Petroleum."

How I See It: Someone must have some free time.

Chad Ochocinco
"@nflcommish Can you appointment me the NFL Ambassador please, I represent us very well in a FLASHY kind of way, think about it."

How I See It: Chad now has a better chance than Roethlisberger to get that assignment.

Bobby McCray
"The popeyes new special is crazy....I might hit the drive thru 6 times 2day...they might even ban me...."

How I See It: If you think that's crazy, how about KFC's new chicken sandwich where instead of bread they have two pieces of chicken?

Evan Oglesby
"Jus played the Lottery for my first time. Watch me hit the $252 Million PowerBall"

How I See It: I hope you are ready for a big disappointment.

Evan Oglesby
"Just woke up from a much needed nap. Ready to Paint the town"

How I See It: Urban Dictionary defines “paint the town” as “to appear at a number of different parties.” So either Evan is a painter in the offseason, or he is about to have a wild night.

Nate Robinson
"Man we might be stuck in DC for another night with all this snow nooooooo!!!! I can't stand the snow! Word aapp!"

How I See It: Every time “DC” is brought up in relation to basketball, I feel the urge to make a Gilbert Arenas joke. It’s an epidemic.

Shelden Williams
"yea so i saw that obama was at the duke game!! he might be bad luck for collegiate sports haha!!"

How I See It: And now he is trying to change the BCS system ... but if he is bad luck, I still don’t see how it can get much worse.

Shawne Merriman
"Can somebody ask @OGOchoCinco where is the charity event"

How I See It: Can you?

Grant Hill
"RT @OMGFacts: Billy goats urinate on their own heads to smell more attractive to females. #omgfacts"

How I See It: It doesn’t work with humans. Not that I’ve tried or anything. (I was desperate!)

Santonio Holmes
"Party on the beach, party animal let em off the leash!"

How I See It: I’m sure this is exactly what Mike Tomlin wants to hear about his wide receiver.

Dustin Keller
"@nickmangold haha I thought an offensive lineman would appreciate any type of meal"

How I See It: Way to be a good teammate, Dustin.

Evan Oglesby
"If ur n Miami. Holla at me"

How I See It: Holla.

David Garrard
"Great career by Kurt Warner. Living proof of never let anyone tell you, you can't do something. Much respect!!"

How I See It: David Garrard is also living proof: I would have told you a few weeks ago that he would never play in a Pro Bowl, and yet here he is as the 400th replacement quarterback for the AFC. You just never know.

Dhani Jones
"Dhani will be making a special LIVE appearance next week with one of his good friends. Stay tuned for more info!"

How I See It:I guess Dhani enjoys speaking in third person.

"i lost my phone and contact..text me ur name, email, and if u have blackberry send ur pin..thanks"

How I See It: You’re sending this out….to your entire twitter following base? Interesting. Desperate for contacts I guess.

Trent Shelton
"So I turn on the tv...and a epidsope of top model is on that I didn't want to see lol"

How I See It:Are there episodes of Top Model that you actually do want to see?

Bryant McKinnie
"Well its warmed up a bit! Went from -15 to -6 whoo hoo! Lol! "

How I See It: It’s in the 60’s today in Florida … I think I shivered a couple times, and I had to break out the sweatshirt for the first time in a while. So I totally know what Bryant is going through right now.

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.
