and Chad don't Twitter...
Chad Pennington | Dolphins
Indicating within his bio as that he is "a leader, not a follower" , the Twitter version of Chad Pennington has had some choice quotes over the past few months. "Cooking dinner, 40 oz. porterhouse, 2 baked potatoes, zuccini, and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon... Chad has a big appetite." " There was a meeting of billionaire philanthropists, I had to send in a rain check...I'm that good at the stock market..." "Got my playbook in the ice bath with me, gotta study in game conditions, cold, with every muscle aching...that's how you win in December..."
As you can guess from the headline, it's not actually Chad, as the Miami Herald reports. "I need to send out a press release or something!" the Miami Dolphins gunslinger told the Herald's Jeff Darlington. "Can somebody please let the world know I don't have Twitter or Facebook or any of those things?"
Although Chad took the ruse in stride, his Twitterpostor was much more innocuous than those impersonating Ben Roethlisberger and DeMarcus Ware. Big Ben's online copycat posted a false message indicating that he had contracted skin cancer, while Ware's sent the rumor websites spinning with news that a long-term contract was close at hand; of course, both statements proved to be false.
There really isn't much stopping these false accounts from continuing to pop up, so take anything you read there with a grain of salt... and a 40 oz. porterhouse.
