Weekly Hypothetical: Who is one STL athlete you wish would accidentally tweet out their phone number?
Sports fans are a wacky bunch. And by “wacky”, we’re not talking about the tendency to paint our shirtless bodies for a game, have team icons tattooed across our backs or for a few to put forth remarkable effort in an attempt to get 50,000 people to stand briefly and raise their arms in a contiguous pattern around a stadium.
No we’re talking about the reaction sports fans will offer up when a well known athlete appears to have mistakenly made their private phone number public to over a million people via a social media outlet, like the always controversial Lance Armstrong did last week. Will sports fans chalk it up as unintentional gaffe and move on? Nope. Instead we’ll do our best to make sure it gets publicized even further with the end goal being Lance inevitably receiving a glut of perverted and offensive voicemails until his phone number inevitably has to be changed.
While it turns out that the number he tweeted out may not have even been Lance’s after all and the story behind the incident remains unknown, it still got us in the Weekly Hypothetical department wondering how entertaining it might have been to listen to those voicemails. Which leads us to this week’s question:
Last week, in an apparent practical joke or mental hiccup, Lance Armstrong tweeted out his phone number to over a million followers. If you could choose one St. Louis athlete to do the same, knowing that you would have access to their voicemail after the fact, who do you go with?
