Because I already miss taking the most awkward pictures at Memorial Coliseum…
Following the immediate depression that hit once the Kentucky Women’s Basketball team fell on Tuesday night to UConn, I was scrambling for a positive to take from the whole situation. Obviously, I can look forward to next season. The amount of talent that UK returns and gains is off the charts, and the Wildcats will likely start the 2012-2013 season as a preseason top 5 team. But that’s months away, I can’t wait that long. I then realized….now that the season’s over, the ladies should be able to tweet, tweet, tweet away!!
Throughout the season, in order to take away distractions, Matthew Mitchell doesn’t allow the team to use Twitter. This tactic obviously has yielded success, as the women were able to capture their first SEC crown in 30 years this season. Now that the season has come to a finish, one would assume to see the girl’s come back to twitter like a rabid dog seeing meat for the first time in months. Sadly, this hasn’t been the case. I have yet to see any player take advantage of their new rights, and trust me I’ve been monitoring.
I have recently taken notice that the UK Hoops team has found a new social media venue to vent, and they might not even return to Twitter at all! If you aren’t familiar, Instagram is an app for iPhones and Androids that is basically just like Twitter, but it only uses pictures. You can upload a picture and tag others in it, or just say a simple blurb about it. Well, the players have stuck to this like glue, and naturally I found my away around the loophole of not having a technologically advanced phone, and was able to view it on my laptop.
What I found made me the happiest man alive. The players are avid users of the app, and I even got a shoutout from my best friend Samar-mar after we had a homecoming dinner last night!
Included is the candy and card written by Samarie’s best friends: Jackie Basta and I. While being able to find the girl’s on Instagram has quenched my thirst to socially stalk them for now…this won’t last long. This is my plea: please get back on Twitter ladies, before I have a panic attack. I want to be able to publicly profess my love for you, and have crazy inside jokes and hashtags. For me, do it.
I’m the kind of guy who loves a good hashtag, so follow me on Twitter @WilderTreadKSR
