This is a little late, but last night an alert FrontBurnervian pointed me to Dan Jenkins’ Twitter feed. The Fort Worth scribe was a twittering fool from the British Open. He gets docked points for not having twittered since then and for only following one thing (Golf Digest), but it’s pretty amazing how literate and funny Jenkins can be in 140 characters or fewer. Five examples from Turnberry:

“Here’s Stewart Cink creeping up, within a stroke of the lead, wearing the tasteful green cap of a softball team.”

“In the press room, we had a suspicion we weren’t good enough people to deserve Watson winning.”
