I'd rather they just let me go— LaMichael James (@LaMichaelJames) January 30, 2014
Personally, I found the whole Twitter riot pretty comical. It was a very cryptic tweet and logically fans are going to relate it to football. I do not doubt James wants more playing time. Frankly, I would be disappointed if he didn't. Who doesn't want to see a player crave more time on the field?
Within seconds, Twitter blew up. People were deducing every single return, every down and every plausible trade for James. People are always sure to mention James in their sudden dissatisfaction and like clockwork the customary rude responses to James ensued.
James subsequently advised:
I didn't get hacked and personally no 1 has any idea what I'm talking about but if I tweet anything it's always about Ftball— LaMichael James (@LaMichaelJames) January 30, 2014
Read it two or three times if you have to. James is saying people think all his tweets are about football, but as he has said before, they are not. As the self-proclaimed number one LaMichael James fan, it is my obligation to believe him. I can seriously think of a hundred different scenarios where this could apply. In fact, I took to Twitter and had a little fun with the cryptic tweet.
Maybe LMJ was at the airport waiting to board? He could've just wanted to go. Gosh lol.— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
Maybe LMJ is standing in the 12 items or less line and he's got one thing?— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
LMJ is at the DMV. He's all done but has to stay to retake his picture. He wishes they would let him go.— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
@jeremyarc7 He's waiting in line to pay a bridge toll, and the person in a front of him has no money.— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
@Woods49ers He was at a karaoke bar and was waiting for his name to be called. He just wanted them to let him go.— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
Last one: LMJ is at Costco trying to get out the door, but has to stand in line to get his receipt checked. ;)— So Cali Steph (@SoCaliSteph) January 30, 2014
Yeah, everyone called me crazy, but I can come up with 100 more. Football is not the only plausible explanation. If all of twitter wants to go bananas over a tweet, so be it.
But, thank you Bay Area Sports Guy. He retweeted:
Just texted with LaMichael James about his tweet. Says he was at drivers ed in TX, and was referring to them letting him go, not 49ers.— Kyle Englehart (@KyleEnglehart) January 31, 2014
And there you have it!
I told you guys. LOL!
