This week, we're taking a little different approach by giving fictitious (aka make believe) awards for each of the tweets that we highlight.
Of course, we're begin as we always do with the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week
, which also could have won the award for the "Best HBD tweet" if it hadn't been filled with so much irony. (Note for readers over 40: "HBD" stands for Happy Birthday)
Fayetteville's Blake Coulter
sent the tweet to his sister, Kylee Coulter
. The irony is in the sad fact that Kylee — a University of Nebraska-Omaha basketball signee — underwent knee surgery on Tuesday. Also, … Continue Reading ››
