The phenomonen of Twitter has taken the world by storm. The wave of communication has gone from newspapers and magazines, to a simple “tweet” by a reporter. Social media has revolutionized the way our information is gathered and transmitted.
Schefter (@AdamSchefter) and Mort (@MortReport) now deliver breaking news the minute they receive it, Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) can give fantasy advice without writing an article or making a television appearance, and even the Professor- John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) has succumbed to Twitter to deliver his insight. It is truly an ever changing world.
With Twitter also comes athletes thoughts on trending topics. Thoughts on politics, the stock market, pop culture, etc. But for one athlete in particular, his thoughts are mainly geared towards the thing he says he loves the most– Sports right? Nope. Food!
Yep, that’s right, food. And that man is Ex- Giants and Eagles offensive lineman Shawn Andrews (@ImShawnAndrews). Shawn Andrews is currently a free agent in the NFL, but that doesn’t seem to bother him much. You can take a gander at his Twitter page, and most definitely find an intriguing thought that combines food and life on the road. Whether he is in New York, New Jersey, or his hometown of Arkansas, he is sure to have a riveting 140 character or less thought about the city or state he is in and the grub that surrounds the area.
Andrews puts Food Network to shame with his extensive knowledge on local restaurants/food chains, and can you tell you exactly what to order through just a simple tweet.
His fan interaction is unlike any other athlete. If you tweet Shawn you will most likely get a response such as, “Respekt” or even just a “LOL”, but the fact that he takes time out to respond to each fan is remarkable. For instance yesterday afternoon, I suggested he go to Five Guys Burgers and Fries for lunch. We exchanged a few tweets on how good Five Guys was when I told him I forgot my wallet and could not even get lunch. What do you think the big fella said?
Yep that is just the type of guy Big Shawn is. So if your in the mood for something good to eat and need a suggestion or just want a dose of comedy in your life, then look no further than Shawn Andrews twitter page. You can thank me later.
