One day my friend asked me if I followed any North Dakota State student-athletes on Twitter.
“Yeah a few,” I said.
“Dude, you have to follow all of them,” she responded.
“Well, I’m not a jersey-chaser like you.” Whoops.
She didn’t like that comment very much, but she has a point.
Bison student-athletes and Bison athletics have had some likable (or favorite-worthy) tweets. Here is a list of five tweets that will motivate you throughout the rest of dead and finals week.
Dexter Werner @Dexbeezy, “Justin Bieber is out here trying make me a Belieber ”
What’s being said: Bieber’s new album “Purpose” is so good that it’s climbing up Werner’s pre-game music list. The junior forward from Bismarck, N.D., is averaging 8.3 points per game, 6.1 rebounds per game and 1.1 blocks per game this season. Werner has 1,584 followers on Twitter, and his favorite Bieber song from the No. 1 album on Billboard 200 chart is most likely “Get Used To It” because that’s what he’s been saying to Bison opponents all year.
Lucas Albers @Albers_88, “AHHHHHGHHHHHHHSHXJFPVIDHWOXNXOWJFBCJFICJDJXODJSBWN!!!!!!”
What’s being said: Honestly, I have no idea. Maybe it was a tweet about the Green Bay Packers or maybe it wasn’t. There’s six exclamation points being used here, and the caps lock is on. That’s all I can garner from this; I think the senior tight end has some explaining to do.
Katelyn Weimerskirch @KatelynRoseee, “Never eat a pound of grapes in one sitting, it will mess you up”
What’s being said: Even though grapes are healthy, Weimerskirch is suggesting that eating a whole pound of them isn’t what you should do. The junior thrower on the women’s track and field team may be suggesting that throwing a pound of grapes is better then eating a pound of grapes. Wow, that was bad. Sorry.
Ben Schultz @Goose_1986_, “Can the printing money on our Bison Cards be transferred over to our debit cards? Asking for a friend.”
What’s being said: It’s a tough time of the semester right now for all of us. Non-student athletes are spending their money on energy drinks and candy to help them pull an all-nighter for finals next week. Student-machines like Schultz, a middle distance runner for the men’s track and field team, are spending their money on muscle milk and pounds of grapes to help them stay awake at the library. Sorry, Ben, but that printing money can only be used for printing off notes and online issues of this article to show your loved ones.
And finally … @NDSUathletics “What can we say… It’s going down for real! #Hornsup #DecemberHarvest”
What’s being said: Ouch. NDSU athletics quote-tweeted the Bison uniform choice Saturday. This breaking news couldn’t be broken through another way? Couldn’t the 50-year-old man behind NDSU athletics Twitter account using his old smoking Gateway computer come up with a better tweet? “It’s going down for real!” … like really? A Flo Rida lyric? The only thing going down for real is NDSU athletics’ followers, except not really: the account has over 30,000 followers.
