MLB Network had one really misinformed tweet

MLB Network’s Twitter page shared a tweet about Xander Bogaerts breaking up Chris Sale’s no-hitter bid.

The problem, however, is that MLB Network claims it was Bogaerts’ first ever big league home run. That actually is not true. He hit his first homer last season.

People on Twitter made sure they were aware of it.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson tweets during halftime

It’s halftime right now between the Warriors and Lakers game and head coach Mark Jackson sent out this tweet.

Using his iPhone, Jackson tweeted out this message of inspiration (maybe). I am not sure if this was a scheduled tweet or an accidental tweet. Maybe someone is tweeting on his account. Apparently it’s happened before.

Either way, fans are reacting to it.

Arian Foster uses Twitter to tell us a joke and that he’s breaking the law

Twitter is fun and if you use it right, it can be an outlet to tell jokes. For Arian Foster, it’s that and to also tell people that he broke the law.

Well there you go. I bet next time you’ll follow the steps that Darnell Dockett took.

Mercer beats Duke and Roddy White won’t honor bet he loses

Roddy White is great on Twitter but every now and then, he tweets something that he may regret. He promised a fan that he would get him season tickets if Mercer beats Duke.

And that’s exactly what happened.

Sadly, White has decided to not honor his promise.

Free agent tackle Branden Albert just signed a multi-year deal with the Dolphins. With his excitement, he tweeted this.

As noted by people on Twitter, that is the old Dolphins logo. Albert took notice and updated his tweet with a new photo of the Dolphins logo.

But sadly, he still got it wrong.

Did Klay Thompson join Twitter just for a promotion and to boost merchandise sales for the Warriors?

The Warriors are having Social Media Night again and part of the night will feature these new shirts that feature the Twitter handles of the players.

It’s a great promotion and these shirts are cool. However, there was one thing that caught me by surprise and it was the timing of this and Klay Thompson’s “return” to Twitter. I was unaware that Thompson was ever on Twitter. In fact, he hasn’t been on Twitter until he miraculously revived it two days ago.

Prior to the All-Star break, Thompson did not have a Twitter account. The Warriors acknowledged this as part of their lineup announcement all season long.

There was also Poona Ford that wasn’t included. But seriously, a kid’s name is Lion King?

While none of them are quite Mergatroid Skittle, here is a selection of some of the best.

OK, maybe they are better than Mergatroid Skittle.

Athletics unveil peek at new green jersey via Twitter

A mock of what the new green jersey will look like.

The Oakland Athletics teased some photos of their commercial shoots today and the above photo was shared on Twitter.

Notice in the background you see Coco Crisp’s #4 green jersey. It’s different than the regular green jersey they had been wearing in the past. They have the headspoon piping that goes around the neck and the number of the jersey is white with a gold trim.

This matches exactly what I predicted to be their jersey when their alternate cap was leaked.

I think it’s fine, although I wish the emphasis would be on the gold lettering, not the white lettering. But is this change necessary? Absolutely not. But in terms of marketing, the A’s need as much as they can and this is a new way to do it.

Surprised they would let this slide. But then again, teams have made these mistakes in the past.

Last night during the Super Bowl, people went to Twitter wondering who Bruno Mars is

If he just did a drum solo for the entire show, I would have loved it.

Bruno Mars, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, put together a pretty good performance. Not a great one, but a good one. For me, I don’t know anything about this guy. I had only heard about him, but I don’t know what songs he does. The only song I know is that annoying one where he goes “aw yeah yeah” a million times during the Pepsi commercial. And that was the first song he did during his set.

The NFL demographic isn’t the right fit for Mars. The Red Hot Chili Peppers is more fitting, but having Mars headline this big spectacle was a headscratcher. Does the average NFL fan even listen to this guy, let alone know who he is? I think he fits the 20-30 year-old female range.

Last night, there was a major Twitter reaction when Mars hit the stage — especially for the older generation. They wondered who this guy was.

The WWE Network is a dream come true for everyone

There had been discussions about this for some time. I had heard it but wouldn’t believe it until I saw it happen. I didn’t expect that the announcement would feature so many great things. Is this for real?

As a WWE fan, I can say that what the WWE Network is offering is a dream come true. I’ve always wanted easy access to everything WWE at my own convenience. Not only that, I want to learn more about the history of wrestling. I can watch classic matches that shaped my fandom of wrestling.

I can see old matches of Chris Jericho, Bret Hart, Stone Cold, Roddy Piper and all the legends. I can see classic ring entrances of DX, The Undertaker and even Shawn Michaels coming down the cable in Wrestlemania.
