Jacob (aka Speedy) was kind enough to once again put together his weekly Twitter digest of all things Bucks. Thanks Jacob!
Today on the agenda: Andrew returns to Twitter, Delfino gets a special honor, Jennings reveals a secret, and more, after the jump. (I always wanted to say that.)

Andrew's return to Twitter
I'm sure we've all heard by now that Mr. Bogut has returned from Australia and---for now--- His religious rehabbing to resume updating his Twitter account. The Bucks Twitter universe is a much brighter place with him around, that much I'm sure of. And we have the good news that Bucks fans have been waiting for regarding Bogut: ....he is quitting basketball to pursue a musical career with Brandon Jennings.
@BLKICE3 yo lg when u back in mil. Can i be on your next music video ??
Obviously referencing Brandon's "scandalous" Lady Gaga dancing ways, this resulted in a discussion that culminated in asking whether newly signed training camp punching bag Tiny Gallon could fit in a diaper. So many jokes, so little time.
CDR - That's all you need to know
Let me just say,Chris Douglas-Roberts is a Twitter gold mine. We might have only gotten him for a future 2nd, but if a player's worth was determined by their tweeting antics, LeBron would have to be shipped to New Jersey to get him out of a Nets uniform.
So, where to begin. Well, CDR sent out a series of... Guidelines, perhaps? All accompained by the hashtag #suckashii. What does that mean? You tell me.
And these are just a few of them. CDR has a habit of taking hashtags (Ex #OldLadyinTheWindow, #thecrackheaddownthestreet) and making a long series of Tweets describing them, and they're almost as confusing as they are amusing.
As Frank noted in an earlier writeup, CDR has been the very first victim of the Brockness Monster in his new home. And on his own team to boot. The Brockness Monsters spares no one. NO one!
You messed with the wrong man, son. Apparently he saw cartoon-esque stars, and was generously helped up by Foghorn Leghorn. I can envision Chris as a cartoon character, but then again, as Big Crazy Dave has shown us, everyone on the Bucks is capable of being larger than life.
On another note, CDR has also shown himself to be as competitive as he is hilarious.
It's fine to admire somebody. But don't put yourself in such a submissive state. I admire Kobe, but I want to beat him every chance I get.
Preach brotha, preach!
Oh, and remember that whole Swine Flu thing? No? Neither do I. Okay, I do, but it's a faint memory. Apparently not for Mr. Douglas-Roberts.
He's got a point. It seemed like one day it was all that was being covered by the media like it was the second coming of the Black Plague, and then poof, no more.
But that's not all...
Probably JR Smith. Who knows where that guys been.
And once again, this is just a few of his tweets about Swine Flu. Are we seeing a trend here? Yep, when Chris goes off on one of his tangents, he's pretty hard to stop.
Carlito's honor (Courtesy of Nike)
I honestly just can't speak speak Spanish (unless you count random bits and pieces as "speaking the language"). The only language I can form coherent and more complex sentences in besides English is Deutsch. (German) And even that isn't very good. Unfortunately, we don't have any German players on the Bucks, do we?
So, when I saw an interesting bit on Delfino's page, I decided to enlist the ever helpful Palomba1 for translating:
Ahi sale foto de la inauguracion del playground en Keyseri http://yfrog.com/9hhv7cj
According to Palomba, the tweet translates into ""Here's the photo of Kayseri playground inauguration". It was a promotional event by Nike where they built a playground in his name where Argentina played their first round. Cool, huh?
Darington Hobson gets his jersey, watches Delfino
Hobson has been a hot topic recently as training camp approaches and continued concerns about his health. However, one area where there shouldn't be concern is about his dedication: (Well, his dedication according to Twitter)
Oh, and he got his jersey too. Hope we'll actually get to see him in it...
Jon Brockman's burger/house-building fun
Besides beating up helpless teammates, Mr. Jon Brockman also enjoys trolling around local burger joints. So much so, that Milwaukee Burger joint AJBombers gave him the honor of his own burger: The Brockness Burger.
As for the end result? Ehh I dunno, no offense to Jon, but I don't think I'd be eating that anytime soon.
Brocknessie also continues to spread his goodwill by helping build a house with M&I Bank and Habitat for Humanity:
Helping out M&I Bank and Habitat for Humanity build a house this morning. Time to drive a few nails.
Jenning's Special announcement...
Jennings hair style last season was a frequent storyline. I can't even remember all the different hairstyles he used throughout the season, but it's safe to say a picture of Jennings wasn't going to be the same a few weeks later. (I'm still curious if there was a correlation between his hairstyle and his play) So, what about this year?
Following in the path of his idol Iverson?
Other Twitter Notes
Dakota Schmidt (@Dakota_Schmidt) released his newest episode of the Bucks cast, featuring Jason Reid, director of the amazing documentary, Sonicsgate, about the relocation of the Seattle Sonics to Oklahoma City. It's a long one, so make sure you set aside some time to watch it.
