My Twitter Account is MAGICAL!

In lieu of Pack Fan / Bears Fan, we bring you a Tale From Twitter.

So, during the Packers – Falcons game, I was on twitter (@cavittation) finding out what kind of “insight” I might gain from Jason Wilde or Aaron Nagler or Chris from Packers Therapy to calm my nerves. The following is a timeline of those events. I’m serious…it’s not interesting enough for me to have made this up.

It all started after the kickoff return touchdown by Weems. James Starks had just muffed the ensuing kickoff out of bounds forcing the Packers to begin their drive inside their own 10.

@cavittation: Need a drive here...team crumbling.

The Packers put together a beautiful drive that includes James Jones tight-roping the sidelines for a big gain and BJ Raji blocking on a John Kuhn touchdown run. The Falcons followed with another strong drive until…

@cavittation: Need a turnover here...
…Interception by Tramon Williams in the end-zone…
@cavittation: WOW!!!
@cavittation: Can I say I called that?
@PackTherapyDave: Before or after? Need to check the time on this tweet. RT @cavittation: Need a turnover here...
@cavittation: @PackTherapyDave During the Woodson sack...

As you can see, the Packers did what I said needed to happen. Don’t believe me, check this out…
With the ball back in Green Bay possession…

@cavittation: @PackTherapyDave If I say "Need a touchdown here..." will that happen?
…and Stonehands, errr, Jones catches a 20 yard touchdown pass.
@PackTherapyDave: Ha, he still bobbled it. I am just saying.
@PackTherapyDave: Keep it going. Tweet "score TD after the half" RT @cavittation: @PackTherapyDave If I say "Need a touchdown here..." will that happen?

Ahhh, that’s a cheap one. Let move on to the next one.
After Finneran sets the Falcons up at their own 35, a couple Packers pass interference penalties by Shields and Williams quickly get them into Packers territory and then this happened…

@cavittation: Need a stop here...
…Interception by Tramon Williams…70 yard interception return for a touchdown…
@cavittation: @PackTherapyDave It worked again...a pick 6 is a stop, right?
@PackTherapyDave: Now say "PackTherapy Dave will win the lottery" RT @cavittation: Need a stop here...

Yes, I may be “outta my gourd” or “off my rocker” but I’m not the only one…

@jasonjwilde: I have to say, I went into this game pretty confident that I picked correctly that the Packers would win, but I didn't know they'd dominate.
@cavittation: @jasonjwilde lotta time left sir
@PackTherapyDave: No,no. Your job is to tweet positive words. @cavittation: @jasonjwilde lotta time left sir

See…magic.

By the way, this replaces the whole Pack Fan / Bears Fan column?..article? Just be happy the Betting Lines are coming...
