Villanueva tweeted
 
Quote:

Milwaukee Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva sent a "tweet" during halftime of Sunday's Celtics-Bucks game, an act the PR in Sports blog says could be the first instance of a professional athlete using the increasingly popular Twitter service during a game. Villanueva, whose Twitter ID is "CV31", sent this tweet from the locker room as his Bucks and Celtics were tied at 41: "In da locker room, snuck to post with my twitt. We're playing the Celtics, tie ball game at da half. Coach wants more toughness. I gotta step up." His halftime social networking apparently not a distraction, Villanueva scored 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter as the Bucks pulled away for the win. For those of you who haven't tried it, Twitter is an online service that allows users to send out 140-character messages to whoever chooses to follow them. Popular athletes who use Twitter include Shaquille O'Neal and Lance Armstrong. As far as I know no Celtics players are currently using Twitter.

Gil does the internet more than the NBA. Of course he did that.

Jay 03-17-2009 10:22 PM

Now officially banned by the Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks tell Charlie Villanueva not to Twitter during games anymore - ESPN

Kirby 03-17-2009 10:33 PM

If I knew CV would play like that every game after a halftime Tweet I'd let him Tweet all he wanted to! :mischief:

Quoted for truth.

And yeah, there was a report a few years ago of Gil playing online poker at the half of a game, I'm pretty sure he himself confirmed it in that NBA blog he did for a while

Superjudge 03-18-2009 02:33 PM

he typed a ten word entry and outlined how he must get better.

and he got better.

I see no issue.

LX 03-18-2009 06:45 PM

yeah - he's "dat gangsta"

no issue outside of him being an idiot

i'd bet it catches on and they all look like idiots though - goodie
