Another week, another batch of real tweets from real Angel players that are chock full of questionable advice on attending spring training, parenting and fashion.
Michael Kohn unwittingly delivers a public service announcement for any fans traveling to Tempe to see the Angels in spring training:
Being in Arizona means only one thing. Allergies for me. #suckitaz
— Michael Kohn (@MichaelKohn58) February 25, 2012
Seriously, the allergies in Arizona are brutal. The first year I went, my eyes were watering so bad during a game that it looked like I was crying. Bring some Claritin.
New parents are always looking for advice:
Parenting: 18month old is getting in trouble and he starts moonwalking!?!? How do you stop from busting out laughing?
— Rich Thompson (@chopper63) February 27, 2012
There is nothing you can do, Rich. Disciplining young children is a losing battle. Just give up now.
Time for some fashion advice from the Angels new pop culture icon:
@HankConger16 you gotta go with mock turtle under suits this year, do what van damme would do
— C.J. Wilson (@str8edgeracer) February 29, 2012
I can’t tell how serious this conversation was, but I think we can all agree that Conger would totally rock the mock turtle neck.
Not done with the fashion yet, Victor Rojas gives us a sneak preview of his new gameday attire:
I gotta get that Christopher Plummer velvet jacket for opening day.
— Victor Rojas (@VictorRojas29) February 27, 2012
I DARE you to make good on this, Victor. Who knows, maybe it will be a lucky charm like last year’s Rally Luchador Mask?
And finally, not to be outdone, crazy person/prospect Chevy Clarke offers up some motivational advice of his own:
Succesful people have the self-discipline to do things they don’t “feel” like doing. Dicipline is the key to success
— Chevy (@OfficialChevy) February 28, 2012
I never “feel” like reading Chevy’s tweets, yet I still do it, just for this weekly feature. Clearly, I am very successful.
