Phil Jackson’s first tweet is hilariously, awesomely awful

I love the internet for many reasons.  But Phil Jackson’s first tweet is my new #1.  Let’s break it down, shall we?

First, the “zen master” decided his first foray into the social world of Twitter would be a chest-puffing brag-tweet reminding us how freakin’ awesome he is.  Had he actually typed “11 championship rings”, it would have been met with a giant eye-roll from the non-Lakerati.

Yeah, we get it Phil.  COUNT TEH RINGZZZ!!!

But then, he flubbed it.  But why? Did his right hand just slip to the right?  Is this a real life example of the meme “Go home Phil, you’re drunk”?

And now, in pure internet fashion, the pendulum swung from “epic fail” to “awesomely awful.”  Now “Ringhs” is taking on its own life.  I’m sure there will be parody accounts, shirts, and other memes that spring from this.  And the responses to it are almost as good.

This just goes to show… if you’re going to do anything, do it spectacularly and you’ll be remembered for it no matter what.

    And the Lakers don’t wanna hire a genius who has the arrogance of a player why…? Dwight would have loved him.

      Genius? This guy rode the coattails of Jordan and Shaq in their primes. He was absolutely exposed and annihilated by the C’s in 08 and should’ve lost to the C’s again in 2010 except Perk got hurt and Stern’s minions decided to give the home team the trophy in game 7. My friends who are Laker fans admit the Cs were robbed by the refs in game 7. God I hate David Stern…
