Welcome to our newest feature here on BN, where I justify following hundreds of people on Twitter to give you the most interesting, relevant, and fun Bruin related tweets. They're not just about the athletics programs, but about UCLA in general, Westwood, and other fun tidbits from the lives of our favorite current, past and future Bruins.
First, congratulations are in order to Brandon and Jalynne Crawford, he of UCLA Baseball (and current SF Giant) and she of UCLA Gymnastics, as they announced they are expecting their first child together.
That is going to be a VERY beautiful baby.
Checking in on the men's basketball team, LMR is working out with the team.
Another great workout with the ucla kids. They look great. Norman Powell, Josh Smith looks great and Lamb is improving. #BRUINS— Lorenzo Mata(@RealMataLo) May 10, 2012
Gavin Smith is still missing. For updates, please visit the website linked up by his son.
Look who else has been on campus!

Bruin Alums always root on their fellow alums, especially those in the playoffs:

Bruins for life.
If you are watching the NBA Playoffs,
Three of the 8 teams in the NBA Conference Semifinals are led by UCLA point guards (Westbrook, Collison, Holiday) #PointGuardU— UCLA Basketball (@UCLAMBB) May 14, 2012
Possible future Bruin Point Guard Kyle Anderson, who recently had surgery on his thumb, is still working hard.
Omw to workout. Lol yes im gonna try to workout with one hand. This is going to be frustrating !!! Lets see how it goes— Vinny Chase (@KyleAnderson5) May 14, 2012
He didn't follow up with any comments about pain, so it looks like he survived.
Wisdom from our possibly starting QB this fall:
It's not what you are willing to do that will make you successful. It's what you are willing to do without in order to get there— Richard Brehaut (@Brehaut1216) May 15, 2012
I know some of you may be interested in this game that came out on Tuesday. Is it... Diablo?
Well there's definitely one Bruin that is all over it - Chris Kluwe. Of course, not at midnight when it was Error 37'ing everywhere.
Judging from my timeline, I chose... wisely when I decided to go to bed last night instead of waiting for Diablo 3 to start up.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) May 15, 2012
