Tweeters of the Midway: Forte's Cute Puppy

Occasionally Tailgate takes a look at the Chicago Bears plethora of tweeters and the ridiculous, inane, humorous and weird things they say, this week: Alex Brown eats lunch with his wife, Matt Forte has an awesome looking puppy, Jay Cutler goes to Nashville and more...

Starting things off this week is Bears defensive lineman and Tailgate favorite, Alex Brown. Dude loves his wife and according to his tweets grabs lunch or dinner with her just about every day [cue "awwww" from studio-audience-Ed.]

Brown's tweet of the week is modestly LOLish:

"Headed home from work. Meeting up with my wide for lunch but not sure where to go."

...and the update to that, thanks to a few hawk-eyed followers...

"Headed home from work now and meeting up with my "wife" for lunch! Thanks for letting me know lol that could have been really bad."

Keeping up the cute theme this week, running back/human bulldozer, Matt Forte, twitpics something adorably awesome or awesomely adorable, your pick really:

"I miss my dog back at home!"


That curious sensation you're feeling? That's just your dead and icy heart thawing and beating again thanks to the unbearable cuteness.

In still more cuteness alert (honestly, football players who knew they were so sensitive, right?) Devin Hester --who for the first month of the season was a Twitter ghost-- has been lighting it up recently with tweets re: his soon to be born son. All good stuff:

"On my way to get better on my day off, n I have a lil man on his way n dis world that's goin to look up to me"

"Man my boo tryin to make me read the expectant father book for da soon to be new born, but i'm so so sleepy what should I do? Guys?"
9:52 PM Oct 6th from Echofon

"Man I'm at the doctor checkin on my soon to be new born baby boy and he is just kickin so much now!!!!!"

As for Jay-Bot 5000, one of the few "celebs" on twitter to have his profile certified, fyi, he's on his way to the ol' stomping grounds for the bye week.
