Here's what I tweet to Irsay this morning. And yes, I saw the typo (your->you're), doh! Anyway, I figured I'd keep a musical theme going.
How about this for a challenge to ColtsAuthority readers?: Whether you think he should play or not, I think most would agree he should retire here. So use this hashtag to tweet Irsay, but include some line of a song that you bastardize to refer to Manning staying. Would be good advertising for this site, I think Irsay would laugh (hopefully), and it might get the point across.
Silly? Yes. Fun? Debatable. Poor grammar? Definitely!
Use the hashtag and maybe CA (ColtsAuthority, use the abbreviation folks!) can compile some of the most clever lyrics?
Come on, no one has posted this yet:
I'm eighteen and I don't know what I want
Eighteen I just don't know what I want
Eighteen I gotta get away
I gotta get out of this place
I'll go runnin in outer space
Feels like I'm livin in the middle of doubt
Cause I'm Eighteen
Lines form on my face and my hands
Lines form on the left and right
I'm in the middle the middle of life
I'm a boy and I'm a man
I'm eighteen and I LIKE IT
Yes I like it
Oh I like it
Eighteen! Eighteen! Eighteen! Eighteen and I LIKE IT
"Irsay, Irsay, I'm begging of you please cut our man. Irsay, Irsay, please don't cut him just because you can".
That's the best I can come up with. Sigh.
@gizzardfanny It's a blessing and a curse.
But now I'm afraid it's too late, and we should just be quoting songs about the end and what could have been.
"She whispered in my ear! She whispered in my ear, she said, 'You wanna get lucky little boy?' I smiled. I smiled and I said, 'Is it Luck? Is it Luck? Is it Luck? IS IT LUCK?!'" - Primus
@buymymonkey No obligation, of course! My completion percentage for this kind of this is pretty low, but if I keep throwing eventually it'll put some points on the board. I think I had a couple good ones pop up around 3am...
How about "So you wanna replace the GOAT with a college bloke, I say, forget you and forget him too!" - Cee Lo Green. I'll tweet that one.
"Maybe all I need is a shot in the arm." - Wilco
"I am the GOAT." - Beatles
"Baby, one more time." - Britney
@pierrezombie Ya, but you gotta tweet it to Irsay! Or hire an accomplice to do so. Then I'll grab all of the tweets based on the hashtag and write something up?
You didn't say what the prize for the competition is. Does the winner get to keep Manning? Nah, that's probably hoping for too much. Maybe a chance to name a chapter in Greg Cowan's upcoming autobiography, "Live To Tweet, Tweet To Live"?
@Pied No no - not at all. There's plenty of varying opinion on that. Don't mention CA in the tweet. I was saying that CA could assemble the various tweets into a story, and that would drive readers to CA.
