Results Are In, And This Is The Stupidest Tweet Of The Decade So Far
So we were wondering, what do you suppose is the stupidest sports-related tweet of our decade so far? So many to choose from, I know. But in our research this tweet from Feb., 2014, kept popping up. Folks retweet from time to time just to laugh. Ah, good times.
I can't be the only one who thinks if the troops wanted to they could put together a football team and dominate the NFL.

This is not a parody site -- the Young Conservatives are Josh Riddle and David Rufful, who describe themselves as "Christian, Conservative, Dartmouth College '12, D1 Bball players, Dartmouth Review Editors."
Were they really on the Dartmouth basketball team? Yes they were -- and both were pretty good. But they had a side job, and were responsible for videos like this:
ESPN described them this way:
Josh Riddle and David Rufful are basketball players at Dartmouth College who have a rap act on the side, calling themselves The Young Cons and aiming to spread the words of Jesus Christ, Ronald Reagan and "Atlas Shrugged" through music.
With lyrics like this: "Shut your lib lips and open up your ear lobes." how did these guys not become huge stars by now? One reason: they attempted to rhyme "ship" and "patriot".
Anyway, their tweet about the military getting together a football team to play in the NFL got some pretty amusing responses, and continue to do so to this day.

.@YoungCons the Army does have a football team, and they suck, so you're wrong

@YoungCons they would be crushed utterly and would demoralize the country and invite attacks by terrorists. Bad idea.

@YoungCons You're right! If the game was played under water or in tanks. Good thinkin' slugger.
