The Players Are Ready, Are You?

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.

Alex Mascarenas:

It's been a long time coming. But Saturday will be all worth it.

Joseph Fauria:

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.

Our football alums are also excited for some football!

Alterraun Verner:

Man I excited to watch my UCLA bros get after Houston tmrw

Maurice Jones-Drew hasn't tweeted as much recently, but he retweeted a tweet by UCLA Athletics:

RT : Football has touched down in Houston. Off to the stadium for a walk-through.

He loves his Bruins.

Chris Horton, Bruin forever.

That's right this Saturday the take on the Houston Cougars. Stand up!!!

If you're looking for some other UCLA Football alums to follow, I highly recommend:

Christian Yount:

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

Danny Rees:

Are you referring to me? RT : J-Timbo really did bring sexy back.

His tweets with Christian Yount crack me up.

Chris Kluwe:

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.

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.
