Tweets of the Week: Colts, Evan Bayh, Mike Epps, and More
A sampling of this week’s top tweets citywide: the witty, the pithy, and the downright timely. Plus, a post about national ”news” that’s sure to make you chuckle (or hungry).
By now we’ve all witnessed Colts tackle Anthony Castonzo’s some-kind-of-perfect touchdown dance, which, in the moment, Cris Collinsworth labeled the best thing he’d ever seen. (Really, CC? In no time, we rattled off five better moves, if away from the NFL.)

Posted after they beat the Heat (in Miami) and before they topped the Bulls (in Chicago), this Conrad Brunner quip is probably the best description of the Pacers this week, or month, or season:

Now it wouldn’t be the Hoosierland without a spate of tweets about the weather. (We do love our #INwx wheezing, don’t we?)
