Twitter Tuesday: Ron Johnson Confusion

There are some of you who are probably tired of Ron Johnson by now, and to those of you who are, I apologize. Unfortunately, I made my mind up about this on Sunday and there’s no turning back now!

Yesterday, I shared a tweet from Ron Johnson, former Minnesota Gopher and Baltimore Raven, pertaining to Silas Redd. Later in the day, our friends over at Nittany Lions Den did some fact-checking on Ron Johnson’s tweets.

Now, we’ll take a more recreational look at Mr. Johnson and his humorous mis-understanding of the english language. If it feels like piling on, I apologize, but hopefully you’ll get a laugh out of it.

This tweet is unrelated, but it sheds some light on the individual we’re dealing with. Blurred sense of reality.


The tweet that started it all! He probably meant “in shambles” but it quickly becomes clear that english is not Mr. Johnson’s strong suit.


Actually, the definition of “shamble” is to walk or move along in an awkward or unsteady way. But facts have already become optional.


Well…..that’s not true. Penn State has been in primetime TV twice, so…. more unfacts.


Oh, well that makes sense, as untrue as it is.


We’ve actually discussed the definition of “shamble”, Mr. Johnson.


Still no.


Penn State has been on ABC or ESPN every week but one, a night game on BTN.


Oh, so showcasing is done with post-season polls and the San Diego County Credit Union Bowl! Got it!


We KNOW what you said, and there has never been a more current statement than “Silas Redd IS showing out…”


Actually, I always take notice when people spew random false opinions as fact, with no plans of ever defending the statement. Happens too often.


Finally a little truth, although it has little to do with the point. Penn State is on national television pretty much every week, just like they always have been.

So if it’s not on at 8pm in California, where less than half of America lives, it’s not national. More issues with definitions.


Um you kinda said exactly that.


Mr. Johnson deleted this tweet, like many others, but Ben had already recorded it into history.


“Playing for a child molester” isn’t twisted. It’s a quote.


In fairness, calling innocent people child molesters is worse than implicating.


You wouldn’t? Curt, do you agree?


I thought we established that facts were optional in the beginning!
