Tweets with Some Kick
Outspoken Viking Chris Kluwe became one of football's rarities in 2012: the high-profile punter. His open-letter takedown of a Maryland politician who sought to keep a Ravens player from speaking out in support of gay marriage got more than 2.3 million page views on Deadspin, and his Twitter feed, @ChrisWarcraft, is a constant source of witty—and informed—musings. We asked Kluwe for his five must-follow feeds. His list:
@YourAnonNews (Remember, remember) Mostly unbiased news covering every topic imaginable.
@TCrabtree83 (Tom Crabtree, Packers tight end) Almost as funny as me.
@BMcCarthy32 (Pitcher, somewhere [Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy—ed.]) Funnier than me.
@ZoltanMesko (Punter, Patriots) He's a wizard who knows 11 billion languages.
@SI_PeterKing (Coffee fancier, beer snob) So I know where to send my rants.
In the App of Luxury
When it comes to sports, smartphone technology, with its portable access to real-time news and scores, is a blessing for the hungry fan. And this year the hungry spectator. In September, Barclays Center released an app that allows visitors to have the run of the Nets' cushy billion-dollar abode. Too lazy to use the app's map to track the nearest concessions? Use the in-your-seat ordering option. Users can control their own instant replays, which could be handy should they miss a big play while using the app to text a jumbotron message. And should they be heckled for showing more interest in their phone than the game, the "report" tool will happily tattle to stadium security.
