A Twitterpated Top 10 Tuesday:

There has been no shortage of sporting story lines over the last seven days. Instead of shoring my thoughts on all that has been in the world of sports here are some of my favorites from the Twitter universe from the past week.

10 – The latest debacle in Leaf Land is Nazim Kadri sleeping late for a team meeting and being benched for their game last night on Long Island. That prompted this beauty from Toronto Sun columnist Steve Simmons:

@simmonssteve: This is how it works in Leafland. You get fined and benched for sleeping in. But if you sleepwalk through games, no punishment at all.

9 – While Backstage PTS quipped:

@BackstagePTS: Kadri is also grounded from talking on the phone and playing his video games.

8 – In Riderville a differing opinion of the value of Korey Sheets has emerged after Roughrider Head Coach Corey Chamblin made an appearance on CKRM”s Sportscage with Rod Pedersen. That prompted this tweet from the voice of the Riders:

@sportscage: Just re-listened to Chamblin intvw. He said Sheets had issues “character-wise” upon his exit that didn’t show up while he was a Rider

7 – And this response from Sheets himself:

@Sheets24K: Didn’t know I had character issues #CFL

6 – One more on football and while all around good guy Kelly Bates is preparing for his first season as Head Coach at Simon Fraser he still is working on developing the game back home:

@KellyBates59: To Saskatchewan high school football players Gr 9-11;only 25 spots left in my camp.Check out registration and info at kellybates.ca

5 – So did you catch the finale of The Bachelor? Me neither but one member of the Calgary Hitmen, and a Vancouver Canucks draft pick did!

‏@Jake_Virtanen: Still wished he picked @kaitlynbristowe #bachelorprobs #vanpride

4 – What do you do if you win the Brier? Here’s what John Morris did!

@johnnymocurler: I’m suffering from the best hangover of my life today… @MillStreetBrew #beerofchoice

3 – Meanwhile Pat Simmons continues to get the respect of his peers despite some raw feelings about his team mates. Especially from fellow Saskie curler Ben Hebert:

@BennyHeebz: Patty “The Cub” Simmons is dialed in…. Unreal considering he was tossed to the Wolves early In the week…. #Gutsy #Brier2015 #PSpot

2 – The Edmonton Oilers struggles have been well publicized, namely by the Edmonton Sun’s Terry Jones. Jones proves that all you can do at this point is laugh despite a historic night for the NHL.

@sunterryjones: Russian ref. Oilers outshooting Detroit 9-0 to start game. Coincidence? Oilers being relegated to KHL next seasonm?

1 – And a man I have a ton of respect for has been jetting across the country telling his story, changing lives and inspiring the next generation. Theoren Fleury most recently was a guest on the Rogers Hometown Hockey tour. It was his next stop that caught my eye!

@TheoFleury14: We just flew 1400km at a speed of 500km an hour and came up 10ft short of the gate. Stuck on the plane lol u can’t make this shit up!!!!!

That’s it for today. Enjoy your day!
