Computer whiz

It began with Milwaukee Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva, who posted to Twitter from the locker room during halftime of a Bucks-Celtics game. (Here’s the tweet.) Bucks coach Scott Skiles was not amused, and ordered CV31 to cease and desist, at least during actual game hours.

Not all the NBA brass are aware of this sort of thing, it appears. For example, here’s Timberwolves coach Kevin McHale:

“I heard someone say Charlie Villanueva was tweeting,” McHale said, “and I thought it meant he went in to take a leak at halftime. I guess that wasn’t it. I have no idea what they’re doing these days. I’m just glad I can get my computer to five or six sites, one political and four sports ones.”

McHale, for the record, is four years younger than I.

    Well, perhaps in some convoluted symbolic way, Tweeting could be like taking a leak. Haven’t some people referred to high-volume posting as “bloggorrhea”?

    Never heard of it.
