This is funny if you are a Colts fan like me
Obviously, the title is a joke, but the joke is indeed courtesy of Colts rookie cornerback Jerraud Powers. Like many of us this past Sunday, Colts players Jerraud Powers and Pierre Garcon were watching the Jets play the Bengals in Cincinnati. However, unlike the good old days, when people would call and talk to one another during the course of the game, “Jpeezy25″ and “ShowTimeP85″ decided to use Twitter to talk trash about each other, their Colts teammates, and about other NFL players.
Of course, the winner in all this is us, the fans, because the entertainment value of Pierre Garcon calling Jerraud Powers as slow as Peyton Manning cannot be measured in mere dollars. Just entertainment is priceless. Here is there Twitter conversation from this weekend:
Jpeezy25 how is that a flag….Revis is locking this clown down and they calling some cheap stuff…
ShowTimeP85 Revis holds 95% of the time….don’t be bias
Jpeezy25 agggghhh u WRs these days are babied..we can even touch yall but u can push us all day and dont get calls. Revis is not holding
ShowTimeP85 it goes both ways yall hold we push off
Jpeezy25 Garcon…u cant be serious…i know a guy name Austin Collie…nuff said
ShowTimeP85 lol thats him…I don’t push off..yall be so far off I don’t have to push off…my speed push yall off far enough…
Jpeezy25 haaaa u funny..we can race tomorrow..me and lace the fastest dudes on the team besides Taj
ShowTimeP85 don’t put your money on it…
ShowTimeP85 your about as fast as Peyton…
Jpeezy25 now that was jus disrespectful man…take that back, im hurt
Jpeezy25 now everybody retweeting that man..haaa
The Twitter party was later joined by Seahawks running back (an former Colts back) Justin Forsett, who was also watching the game. Garcon is quite the Twitter maven, with chatty friends like Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, Bengals defensive tackle Pat Sims, 49ers linebacker Takeo Spikes, Colts cornerback Jacob Lacey, and Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens in his Tweet roll.
Of course, the absolute master of Twitter from the Colts locker room is Raheem Brock. When he’s not Tweeting updates on Dallas Clark doing a cover of “Juicy” he’s posting pictures of the bill at Ruth Chris Steakhouse (Tip to LovinBlue)for the annual rookie d-line dinner. When it comes to Twitter, it is Raheem Brock’s world and the rest of us are loving it! I mean seriously, how can you not love a Colts player who Tweets this after the Patriots lost their first Wild Card Playoff Game under Bill Belichick:
Peace out patriots!nd we have no room on the bandwagon for patriots fans yall can kick rocks….barefoot! Lol bout to study these ravens!
There was also this little Tweet from Brock, made just prior to the Ravens v. Patriots playoff game:
I’m cleanin up the house this morn nd some papers fell on the floor in front of me..my study notes from playn bmore…think its a sign.lol
The hilarity of Powers complaining about Austin Collie pushing off and Raheem Brock telling Patriots fans to kick rocks barefoot all provide the kind of honest, unfiltered dialogue that we fans are often denied. Press conferences are too scripted and locker-room interviews too bland for the access to feel real. Here, on Twitter, the interaction feels real. Sometimes, it can backfire and make you look like a crass, immature fool, like Chris Johnson’s Tweet this weekend did.
Here, it just makes the players seem like human friggin beings, not the mindless, “blah blah blah” stiffs we see plastered all over ESPN and the like.
And while a significant amount of the Tweeting is silly in nature, one constant theme is pushed by the players when they are Tweeting either during or after work:
RaheemBrock Feels good to be working in jan!
Jpeezy25 Just got to work, preparing for Baltimore…gotta b great this time of year.
Again, hard not to like guys who think and Tweet this way. Go Colts!
A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.
‘Oh, I really liked it,’ she replied, ‘especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.’
Dumbfounded, her date asked, ‘What do you mean?’
‘Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was: ‘Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!’ I’m like….Helloooooo? It’s only 25 cents!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s actually possible to print text upside down using a simple CSS property and works cross-browser today. The property to use is “text-gravity” with a value of “inverse”.
<span style="text-gravity:inverse"> write upside down text </span>
… and this is the result:
ʇxǝʇ uʍop ǝpısdn ǝʇıɹʍ
I’m really surprised to learn that so few people know about this property, and I recommend you to continue reading the W3C specification of text-gravity.
Update: Sorry, I lied The above is done with a UTF-8 character generator (see the link the the “specification” above). Amazingly, you can find that most characters have their upside down equivalent somewhere else in the huge Unicode alphabet. Neat trick Here’s another site that does the same thing.
