*brushes mustache* oh how I love thee, upper lip hair. @ConnorBarwin98

In reference to a mustache bet between Foster and Barwin on today's Tenn v U of Cincy game.

Foster on Kubiak saying starters will play 3 qrtrs vs SF: "I'm just a chess piece. If Bobby Fischer tells me to go, I'm gonna go."

Foster's tweets, and interview responses, are some of the best in the NFL. On the eve of the opener I thought starting a thread to gather them in a central location would be fun.

Foster said his hamstring feels good, and that he’s “pretty much 100 percent.”

Operating fully at 100 percent, and then some, is his sense of humor. Asked if he felt like himself today, Foster said, “I feel like myself everyday.” As to how many reps he needs to get ready for the regular season, Foster said, “62. It’s a science, man. It’s a science.”

Someone get's it.Well then, who the hell is Gary Fischer? Bobby Fischer is a chess player, but any correlation between GARY Kubiak telling a player how nuch he will play and Bobby FISCHER moving a chess piece is a reach of ludicrous proportions. I won't even bother with the obvious contradictions. It's just silliness.

NAh!!!! This person would also think that Mario Williams would be a great WOLB. Nobody would ever think that!!

Foster was unsure on Wednesday afternoon if he'll be able to play on Sunday. "...I ran pretty well on it today... I was cutting. I was running and cutting and frolicking."

Gary Fisher pioneered the design of what we now call a mountain bike back in the 70's. He still makes great bikes to this day. Gary Fisher Bikes are part of the Trek family.

Wait, the Star Trek family? Are you saying that Arian feels like Kubiak is on the same level as Kirk or even Picard? That is ludicrous sir and I will here none of it from you, Gary Kubiak, Gary Fisher, Bobby Fischer, Arian Foster, or anybody else. Harrumph

I unfollowed him.

Can't take that empty philosophical nonsense. Saw something the other day that was like "Politics is politics, love is love. Choose your lane."

What the hell IS that?! What does that even MEAN?!

Last year, one of my commenters said that Foster wrote poetry. He was kind enough to send me some over for my blog:

After he put up a zillion yards last season against the Colts, I had my commenters write him poetry.

I don't tweet, but, I love reading his stuff on FB and what the mods put up on the front page. Also, what Steph and Aj writes about him. Foster is a complicated guy, very cerebral, and I find that makes him even more fun and interesting. At least he's articulate, something we can't say for about 80% of the players in the NFL!!

I will give him that. He is a bright dude. And the press confrence in pteredactyl (sp) was genious, but there's a fine line between being insightful/introspective and being being pompous windbag. I like him overall, I just don't care for the whole fortune cookie wrapped in a football player schtick. Having said that it could be worse. What if he were Chad Johnson-like? That would suck.

Count me in as agreeing with you. Rep your way.

Everybody's in love with him because he's Big Man on Campus. Whatever he says, the crowd is in awe of him.

Here's a hyperbole example of something he would do, and the after effects of it: "Hey, dwittle twittle...dee-dee-boppity-boop. You know what I'm saying?" And the crowd goes wild, remarking how insightful he is. Geez.

And if any of you flame me for saying the above ^^^, I'll just have my mom come on here and defend my honor. So be careful...she knows how insightful and deep I am.

He tweeted this:

"My hamstring is radiant. Delicious cravings of immutable veracity. You know what I'm sayin'? Yeah. Aluminum."

LOL.

Pretty much. I love Arian on the field--a lot. I guess I just like my dudes to not dabble with stuff like this off the field. I don't like them to act like their Kanye West or something, giving some "insightful", "forced individualistic", "look at me I'm so enlightened" stuff.

Amare Stoudemire, one of my favorite players in the NBA and someone who dominated for my team for so many years used to do this shit too. He tried getting in touch with his philosophical douche side, and it turned me off of him. Unfollowed his ass.

These guys arent going to miss some punk kid from LA following them, but it's just my opinion.
