It started with defensive tackle Adams, who started to tweet "facts" about Chris Harris. He started with insults to Harris' breath, his love of double-dutch competitions, and his off-the-field fashions. He then went on to share such gems as,
"@ChrisHarrisNFL still wears airbrushed rhinestoned jean jackets with pictures of him playing the flute,"
"@ChrisHarrisNFL got turned down from Shake weight because of his BEFORE pictures,"
"@ChrisHarrisNFL is so dumb coaches told him to line up at free safety, this dummy says,'Oh thats a good deal how much does it usually cost.'" and my favorite,
"@ChrisHarrisNFL wears a belt with mesh shorts."
Harris couldn't stand idly by, so he started in on Adams' weight and looks, saying that Adams uses a hula hoop as a belt and that Harris uses Adams' baby picture as an anti-theft device for his car. Harris also threw out this random tidbit, "Interesting fact about @spiceadams he watches My Little Pony on his iPad minutes before kickoff in the locker room."
Finally, Harris gave in, saying, "Hey man u (sic) kept this thing interesting. I'm calling a truce. White flag is waving."
What was fun about this Twitter exchange is that it gave fans a view of the team's locker room antics without actually having to spend time in the sweaty, smelly locker room. Harris admitted that these sorts of fun cut-ups are always going on at practices. If you aren't yet on Twitter, this glimpse inside the players' world is reason enough to join.
