Adventures in Twittering

Published January 27, 2011 by Cassie

OH MAN. I just realized I’m now updating from hootsuite and its going straight to my journal! And yet still must finish entry in 140 char…

Edit: I thought since I was updating a blog and not a twitter, it would let me write more than 140 characters per entry! Not so, still cuts me off. Bummer. Also kind of redundant since if I’m on hootsuite, I can easily log into WordPress and write a proper update…

In other news, Real Madrid won their game today! It was against Sevilla, which generally means yellow cards abound and I spend half the match worrying about our defense and feeling like there is a 20lb cat sitting on my chest.

I don’t think I want to make it a habit to blog about sports, mostly because I feel like such a new fan that I’m not sure I have much to contribute. But in the minutes after today’s game ended, a Sevilla fan threw what looked like a glass bottle (could’ve been something else, it was hard to tell, but it looked heavy!) at RM’s goalkeeper, Iker Casillas (who also happens to be my favorite player, along with millions of others, of course. What a special snowflake I am.). He went down and it was the first time in my incredibly short football fan career that I’ve seen “hooliganism” outside of the various game clips I watch on Youtube when I should be reading for class.

Anyway, the point is: It was scary/annoying/some other, better modifier that I can’t think of because my brain is full of nutritional facts at the moment. But come on, throwing something at your national team’s captain just because you’re mad at a controversial ref call made earlier in the game? In the words of Seth Meyers: REALLY??

I sound so ridiculous and butthurt right now, I’m sorry. After re-reading this entry I’m amused with myself. I’m turning into the thing I always hoped I’d never be: a fangirl. Dear Lord.

Just so this isn’t one giant wall of text, here’s a video of part of the incident (that makes it sound so ominous!)

And with that nerdy, poorly written rant, I’m out.
