Kevin Love: “Today is a sad day…Kevin McHale will NOT be back as head coach next season.” Oops. Are we really at the stage where, if you’re an athlete and you hear team news, the first thing you think to do is tweet it? We’re torn between this being an innocent mistake or a dumb move. Will it steer athletes away from twitter? Brandon Jennings seems pissed. Somewhere, a sports editor is jotting down a note: “Feature … perils of twitter … college football … Kevin Love … that Chad Pennington story … can we have it for Sunday?” (Star Tribune)
Big moment in sports.
