The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

Special! 8 days a week edition!

Figured I might as well throw this one in, considering there was a game this afternoon. Though given the painful nature of the result, I gave serious consideration to skipping it entirely, and including it neither in this round-up nor the one next Thursday. But that would offend my sense of journalistic rigor. Thanks to Charlie for liking Tweets while I was up in Seattle. And onto the Twitter we bravely go...

Tweet of the Week

You missed out, “ the end of the third inning”. :)

What a novel concept. They’ll be taking bets on it in the Las Vegas sports books next...

After the inning of sinning in this one, we had a little visitor

In the light of subsequent events, climaxing in Peralta’s ninth-inning homer, and the subsequent walk-off, I can only quote Mallory Know from Natural Born Killers, as she stomps on a redneck: “How sexy am I now, huh? Flirty boy! How sexy am I now?”

Or, from the other dugout, some refreshing honesty:

Diamondbacks 4, Cardinals 10

Not much to cheer about here, but I would like to salute one of our future educators, who brought a group of kids to Chase Field...

This is why I am not a teacher, folks. I lack the patience of a saint apparently necessary. #GetOffMyDamnLawn
