Twitterpated

I was very late to the Twitter party.  In fact, I've only been involved for a week or two.  I figured it was just like Facebook.  Or a more public form of texting.  Wrong!  Turns out that Twitter has greatly enhanced my sports viewing experience.  Don't get me wrong.  The best way to watch sports is with friends and family.  But, Twitter allows a group of people to comment in real-time on events we're experiencing together via the magic of TV.  And not just any group.  It's a group that includes your friends.  But it also includes people that you have previously only admired from afar.  It was pretty cool to watch Game 7 of the World Series with Buster Olney.  It will be exciting to watch tonight's Bama/LSU game with Todd McShay.  And Bill Simmons will be a great house guest for tomorrow's amazing slate of NFL games.
