Jay Wright is Now Tweeting

Gentleman, scholar

This has been an unrivaled week in Twitter signups. First Ilya Bryzgalov on the day of his visit to Philly, then Michael Stutes on a boss day (read: every day), and now Jay Wright  (@VUCoachJWright). 

The announcement comes as part of a larger PR push for Villanova- the school also unveiled its new basketball website today. It's got a lot of flash and rap music, which basketball players like.

Reals: If, last week, you would have asked me for three people that I'd like to see join Twitter, I would have said, without hesitation, a Russian goalie, a Boss, and Jeff Carter… but Jay Wright would have been a close fourth.

He could go one of two ways with his account: The Pat Summit I'm going to use this as a promotional tool to help strengthen women's lib route or the Pat Chambers I'm going to use this to actually give you some insight into what I do and continue being a kick-ass coach route. Either way, he really needs to end every Tweet with the \\// sign. I know how much you all love that.

His first Tweet was, of course, positive:

I'm telling you, this man could sell viscous liquid to Aunt Jemima. 

Perhaps now is the time to rant – in 140 characters or less – about last year's debacle to Wright… Nah, I'll wait. Welcome to the interwebs, Coach.

Invariably, this post will bring out two types of people: Villanova apologists or the unwashed masses* people who hate everything the school does.

*That was a joke! Not real. I don't think I can be more clear about that. I'm getting off stage. \\//

    I’m a two-time graduate of Villanova (’08 and ’11), and I have to say I thoroughly enjoy your blatant homer-ism!

    Type 3: People who don’t give a shit about your overrated school. I have seen Ivy League grads more humble than Nova alum.

    I wasn’t trying to be conceited or boastful, I was just trying to express my fondness for my school.
    Just as many visitors to this site feel a strong bond to the Eagles, Flyers, and Phillies, and revel in the community that shared fandom fosters – even if there is nothing that makes Philly teams intrinsically “better” than other teams – I was enjoying the community of the Nova Nation and figuratively high-fiving a fellow alumnus!

    CK1 – Jay Wright couldn’t have said it any better himself.
