|Bush loves to Tweet|
Wow, this Twitter stuff is addictive.
My son set me up with an account and it's pretty cool checking out what people are thinking or saying.
LSU Associate Women's Head Coach Bob Starkey has some awesome motivational links on his Web site.
One of the most interesting I have found so far has been Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints.
I know there are a lot of Reggie-haters out there, but I have always enjoyed watching him play.
I never was a big Southern Cal fan, but I was excited when the Saints drafted Reggie.
Sure, we all knew there was more to the story with the condos and agents.
But I admire the way Reggie handled it even though I'm kind of feel like the deal with Pete Rose. He earned the right to be in the Hall of Fame with his play on the field.
He owned up to his mistakes and didn't kill anyone that I know of, so give him his due.
Reggie has taken a big step in handing back his Heisman, although I wouldn't fault him for hanging on to it until he was asked to give it back.
Reggie's first four tweets after he gave back the Heisman say a lot about him.
First there was, "Just want to thank everyone for their support throughout this tough time. This has been a hard decision for me today but I feel it's right."
Next was, "I hope that kids and upcoming youth can look at me and use this story as an example and learning tool. Challenges are a part of life."
Then came, "But the key is to never allow your faults or mistakes to define you, yet use them as an opportunity to mature and grow to become better!
And finally, "Now that this is behind me I look forward to the future and winning more awards and championships here in New Orleans! Who Dat!"
That's pretty cool, right there.
Following his knee injury, Reggie tweeted, "Thank you guys for your well wishes I'll be fine. Be back in not time. More importantly the Saints are 2-0. Getting ready for Falcons next."
And then these tweets after the tragic death of Kenny McKinley.
"Prayers go out to the family, friends and teammates of Kenny McKinley...I didn't know him but I'm sure he was a great person! R.I.P."
"It puts life into perspective when you hear about people dying or killing themselves. Life is precious and short never take it for granted."
"It makes you think that your problems are tiny compared to the people who are no longer living and experiencing life."
Then there are the fun tweets such as, "Watching Beverly Hills Cop II. Brings back memories! Lol! Theresa Randle was super fine in this movie! I used to have a crush on her!"
And, "Oh thought the movie "The Town" was dope! Ben Affleck was a beast in that movie! Definitely a good role for him! Oscar?"
My co-worker, Tracey Bruce had to let me know dope is meant in a good way there.
The tweeting gives you a good idea of the human Reggie. That young man has grown up a lot since taking the world by the horns at USC. Good to see the way he handles adversity, the appreciation he has for the fans, the loyalty to his team and his compassion.
You can't take that away from the guy.
