Another day, another new weekly feature for Monkey With a Halo and I think this one is going to be a lot of fun, if I don't say so myself. If you follow this blog, then you probably know how active I am on Twitter, talking Angels all the time, even when I am supposed to be doing my real job (shh, don't tell my boss). One of the things I love best about Twitter is the hashtagged trending topics, especially the humorous ones. So, starting today, every Tuesday, I am going to pitch an idea for trending topic for the Angels fans on Twitter to tackle. This week's topic is: #ArteMorenoLies.
As you will see in my feature article later today, I think Moreno is lying through his teeth in his recent statements about the Carl Crawford negotiations, so it is time to have some fun at his expense. So here are a few sample tweets to get us started:
Not only did the #Angels never make an offer to Carl Crawford, they don't even know who Carl Crawford is #ArteMorenoLies
#Angels were going to sign Podsednik, but would've had to raise prices on hot dogs by 3 cents, just looking out for the fans #ArteMorenoLies
The #Angels don't need an offensive upgrade because Jeff Mathis is going to hit cleanup this year #ArteMorenoLies
I'll be tweeting more throughout the day, so follow me or just do a search on the hashtag to follow along with the fun. I'll post some of the best contributions to the trending topic at the end of the day, so if you have something good, you get to be featured on the blog (which I am sure would be the highlight of your life).
