Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones has earned every one of his 300,000 Twitter followers.
We’re so happy they pressed “Tweet” — even if not all of them should have.
From individual athletes to team accounts, the year in sports Twitter produced some true gems — along with those regrettable 140-character bursts that should have stayed hidden away in the “Drafts” folder.
With the clock winding down on 2015, here’s a look back at 30 of the year’s most memorable tweets:
6. Ducks always fly together. Ducks always stay together. “Mighty Ducks” actor Emilio Estevez stays local to his team during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
4. At least someone retained a sense of humor when the famed Wrigley Field ivy cost the Mets a run in Game 3 of the NLCS:
3. Never change, Cardale Jones. Never change.
2. You didn’t think you could follow every Chicago team but one and get away with it, did you, Mr. President?
Noted White Sox fan Barack Obama follows the Cubs now after they called him out.
1. Obviously, Kobe Bryant’s selfish teammates were to blame for his torn rotator cuff.
Kobe Bryant can still bring it on social media, if not as much on the court anymore.
6. Rumors of George Karl wanting to trade DeMarcus Cousins? As the philosopher Jay-Z said, “When the grass is cut, the snakes will show.”
5. Perhaps we got to know Jake Arrieta a bit too well this year.
After going 12-1 with a 0.75 ERA in the second half, Jake Arrieta earned the right to have a little fun.
4. Thank you for clarifying, Gronk — and for being you.
Most men would love to be linked with model Marisa Hunter. Rob Gronkowski isn’t most men.
3. Kim Kardashian tried to break the Internet. The Yankees actually did.
1. With one little airplane, Chandler Parsons sparked the great Emoji War of 2015, making everyone assume he was hopping on a flight to convince DeAndre Jordan to honor his commitment to the Mavs.
6. Thor never hesitates to drop the hammer.
Jacob deGrom doesn’t have to worry about being on Terry Collins’ good side.
5. The Mets goaded the Yankees into a trap by referring to them as NY (AL), and the Yanks walked right into it by responding, “Yankees. We are the YANKEES.”
4. About that Emoji War — it was won by the Greatest Of All Time.
3. Jason Pierre-Paul laughs in the face of haters.
Jason Pierre-Paul is just daring you to doubt him.
2. When Jerry Seinfeld commented on the Mets’ acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes, worlds collided — in a good way — for countless New Yorkers.
After Yoenis Cespedes and the Mets reached the World Series, how many grievances are left to air?
1. Amid all the Emoji War hijinks, the Clippers showed they would go to any length to win the DeAndre Jordan sweepstakes (which of course they did).
6. Um, is he all right?
5. Yes, this is the same program that had four players accused of raping an unconscious woman in 2013.
4. No, not even a list of sports tweets could be immune to Donald infection.
OK, maybe there is something for Met fans to complain about. Thanks so much, Greg Abbott!
2. How did this not get deleted shortly after its posting?
1. You know it’s a cringe-worthy tweet when the social media coordinator behind it gets canned.
6. Looking back, it’s safe to say the Rams peaked too soon.
5. Five years DeMarcus Cousins waited to roast this writer, who responded by offering to donate to a charity of the big man’s choice.
4. Some wars never end.
3. Suddenly, getting called your full name by your parents doesn’t seem so bad.
2. “Washington State 45, Oregon 38 (2OT)” just wasn’t enough.
