Can you imagine New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora with a soap box? Well, imagine no more. The two-time All-Pro has decided to create his very own Twitter account, and is slowly amassing a legion of followers.
The account, which was created on May 3rd, has already been verified by Twitter and filled with some pretty interesting tweets from the "African Prince."
"And fyi, i dont always play defensive end. But when i do, i prefer to play it for the NYG. Stay thirsty my friends," he tweeted early Saturday morning.
Umenyiora also had an interesting exchange with teammate William Beatty, whom he told to "Enjoy the camp ass whippings u will be receiving." Of course, that immediately prompted questions from fans about a holdout -or lack thereof- to which Osi simply replied "i cant even tell u what that means. Hahaha."
Perhaps the most telling tweet of all was one of Osi's first, in which he wrote "Im probably the wrong guy to have a twitter acct by the way."
Hold onto your hats, folks. Things are about to get wild and crazy.
