The Evster Checks In on Desean Jackson’s Twitter Account

If you’re not on Twitter yet, then you’re living a lie.

Between Coco tweeting out pics of her bonkers bazooka butt, Rob Delaney’s absurdity and Richard Simmons’ zest for absolutely everything (he’s going to the movies today!), Twitter is by far the best thing going in this world. Even better than Federal Donuts. Yep, I said it. I SAID IT.

And the best thing about Twitter (slightly better than the bazooka butts) is getting to see what our favorite athletes are up to ALL THE TIME.

What a world we live in!

Wanna know what Shaq’s eating for breakfast? IT’S ON TWITTER! Wanna tell Bubby Brister that he can suck your butt? HE’S ON TWITTER! Wanna keep track of what Desean Jackson is doing this off-season? THAT WAS SIMPLY A RHETORICAL QUESTION SO I COULD TRANSITION INTO WHAT THIS WHOLE BLOG POST IS ABOUT!

So without further adieu, let’s check in our main man, D-Jax.

Oh, you know, just the Eagles #1 playmaker tweeting pictures of himself with his “Snoopie app.” No big deal. Just a two-time Pro Bowler, rap label entrepreneur and all around P.I.M.P. instagramming pictures of himself LOOKIN’ HARD AS A MUHGGG while rockin’ blue shades and cartoon diamonds!!!

Ugh, you’re so damn cute, Desean, even though you spelled Snoopie wrong. Who am I kidding? That somehow makes you even cuter! I love you D-Jax. I’m downloading this app immediately. Also I had no problem with you falling backwards into the end zone that one time. THAT WUZ DOPE.

Okay, first of all, no one b like dat. I’m sorry Desean, I’m your biggest supporter, but there is no person in this world, NO PERSON IN THIS WORLD, who b like “Jac keep it ROLLEN tho”. Trust me on this, D-Jax, trust me. I know there’s a lot of people out there who love you, and a couple of people out there who understand what the hell you’re talking about, but I assure you, no one b like dat.

This picture is fascinating in so many ways.

First of all, the Orlando Magic are beating the Chicago Bulls?!?! In Chicago?!?! And they’re using the old squads, so someone is playing with MJ, and they’re still losing to Michael Doleac and the Magic?!?!?

Second of all, what the hell is Desean Jax doin’ hangin’ out with Chris Brown?!?! That guy is SCUM. Desean! Stay away from him! Bruno Mars prolly likes video games too!

You gotta figure that the dude in the upper right hand corner has to be using the Bulls, because he looks SO SAD. Chris Brown is just rollin’ him, wapping threes with Nick Anderson, wearing a dumb hat (WHO WEARS A WINTER HAT IN LAS VEGAS?), while Bill Wennington can’t hit a wide open 15-footer.

I could write about this picture for HOURS, but I’m gonna move on.

But before I do! Why is that guy on the Magic -- possibly Bo Outlaw? -- SO TIRED??? He’s bent over and pulling on his shorts!!! Put a sub in, dude! Ike Austin, maybe? Or Matt Harpring? Someone!!!

Adorbz!!!

I’m proud of lil Cam too!!!

Although I think the buttons on his shirt might be messed up.

What’s up with his collar?

I love Twitterrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!

You can follow Desean on Twitter @DeseanJackson10. You can also follow The Evster on Twitter @TVMWW. I’m not sure if you can follow lil Cam yet, but one day maybe, one day. 

Ilya Bryzgalov talks goalies playing in contract year, Las Vegas and more

Ilya Bryzgalov talks goalies playing in contract year, Las Vegas and more

Gotta love Bryz, right?

Former Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was his usual humorous, unpredictable self in a recent interview with Sportsnet.ca's Luke Fox.

From what he's doing now to talking pressure as a goalie, here are some of the highlights ...

On a goalie's mental state when job security is up in the air (referenced to Flyers goalie Steve Mason)
“So many goalies take the job for a long time, so it’s easy to be out of game. You worry. You want to find a long-term job, pay bills. It’s not a secret. That’s why when there’s no [contractual] certainty and you don’t see 100 percent confidence from your team, it might affect your game. If the season’s not going well, you start thinking about it.”

On his son playing goalie
"He chose it. He’s the guy who gives his team a chance to win. Make some saves. But he plays as a player once a week, too. Shoots the puck on goalies every Wednesday pretty much.”

On being a hockey dad
“I’m pretty calm. I only get upset when I see the referees make the bad calls. The kids work so hard and play so passionately, you can’t take sides. Only when the referee’s unfair.”

On being a pro hockey player in Las Vegas
"I’m family guy, settled down. I’ve never been too emotional or casino-addicted. For me, no problem. For the young guys to play there, it causes trouble, man. Difficult trouble. … The young ones with the cash? Las Vegas can provide lots of scenes, know what I mean?"

The rest is just as good. For the full Q&A, read Fox's article right here.

Also, Bryzgalov will be a part of Sportsnet's trade deadline coverage next Wednesday.

And side note: Bryz remains active on Twitter. And remains random as ever.

Just look at his last tweet ...

Best of NHL: Capitals edge Oilers for 13th straight home win

WASHINGTON -- Justin Williams and Tom Wilson scored as the Washington Capitals beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Friday night to tie the franchise record with their 13th consecutive home victory.

Williams' game-winner in the third period was his 19th of the season. Washington's streak of home games with five-plus goals ended at 11, but Braden Holtby made 30 saves to pad the team's lead atop the NHL.

Evgeny Kuznetsov didn't have a point but was arguably the Capitals' best player against Edmonton. They have now outscored opponents 64-20 during their home winning streak.

Leon Draisaitl scored his team-leading 23rd goal of the season for Edmonton, which got 24 saves from goaltender Cam Talbot (see full recap).

Hurricanes’ Lack posts ninth career shutout
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Eddie Lack stopped 34 shots for his ninth career shutout to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Jordan Staal, Elias Lindholm and Viktor Stalberg scored, and Phillip DiGiuseppe had two assists to help Carolina snap a five-game losing streak (0-4-1) and move out of last place in the Eastern Conference.

Lack (2-3-1) was making just his sixth start of the season due to concussion issues.

Craig Anderson finished with 41 saves for Ottawa, which snapped a three-game road winning streak. The Senators squandered a chance to move into first place in the Atlantic Division.

Ottawa captain Erik Karlsson moved past Kyle Turris into sole possession of second place on the franchise's consecutive games played list with 308 (see full recap).

Johnson leads Flames past Panthers
SUNRISE, Fla. -- Chad Johnson made 36 saves during his first start in five games to lead the Calgary Flames past the Florida Panthers 4-2 on Friday night for their third consecutive victory.

Troy Brouwer, Mikael Backlund, Deryk Engelland and Sam Bennett had the goals for the Flames, who scored three straight in less than five minutes midway through the first period.

Aleksander Barkov and Nick Bjugstad scored for the Panthers. Roberto Luongo stopped 24 shots in his first start in three games.

The Panthers, coming off the first five-game road sweep in franchise history, have lost two in a row.

Calgary stretched its lead to 3-1 when Engelland swept in a loose puck in the crease with 6:09 left in the first (see full recap).
