I love Twitter - I can post quick thoughts, nonsense thoughts, and deep thoughts in 140 characters or less. I also love that I can follow my favorite celebrities, athletes, and other random people to get their same quick thoughts that they wish to share with the world.
A number of the football players are on Twitter, and they are excited for Saturday's game - last season didn't end how they wanted it to end, and they're ready to prove the world they are in it to win it. Here is a quick rundown of some of the players I follow and their tweets leading up to their trip to Houston after the jump.
It's been a long time coming. But Saturday will be all worth it.#uclafootball
Can't stop thinking about what's to come this Saturday.
Let's hope he forgets the plane ride:
Pre-Game jitters or Insane Turbulence!? Yes, I puked x2. Thank God for barf bags!
I actually think it's kinda adorable... as long as it's jitters. And as long as the puke is nowhere within a 20 mile radius of me.
Taylor Embree was excited to be on the way to Houston:
Houston bound...Football season is finally here yee!
Richard Brehaut, future filmmaker?
I got my flip camera with me an I'm documenting every trip we take from now on. I'll be posting some of em on here so stay tuned Bruin fans
I can't wait to watch!
But he travelled in the style I wish I could have on the 405:
These police escorts never get old haha
Tony Dye, ready to go:
Police escort. Must be that time of year again. #houston
Our football alums are also excited for some football!
Maurice Jones-Drew hasn't tweeted as much recently, but he retweeted a tweet by UCLA Athletics:
RT @UCLAAthletics: Football has touched down in Houston. Off to the stadium for a walk-through.
He loves his Bruins.
Chris Horton, Bruin forever.
If you're looking for some other UCLA Football alums to follow, I highly recommend:
The time I walk outside in Tampa and don't start sweating will most likely be the time a Unicorn is my preferred method of transportation
Are you referring to me? RT @TheYount: J-Timbo really did bring sexy back.
His tweets with Christian Yount crack me up.
So my wife thinks that if I'm getting free stuff, I should mention I wear size 40 Jimmy Choo's with 4 inch heels. #theyhelpmekickbetter
I think he's my favorite. They're also my favorites because they respond to my tweets to them or send me messages when I tweet them.
UCLA Football is back tomorrow. The players can't wait. The football alums can't wait. We can't wait.
