Friday’s Twitter update: Farrior pokes fun at Ward

As we were reminded this week, there are hundreds of NFL players on Twitter, and they tweet the darndest things. Not all of them make headlines, but here’s a random look at what some NFL players are up to Friday, based on their recent tweets…

For starters, happy birthday to Giants WR Steve Smith @SteveSmithNY – who thanked his followers for their well-wishes and added, “we like wine better wit age.”

Bears RB Matt Forte @MattForte22 — is looking for a new pet. He tweeted: “Anyone know a place in Illinois that sells pure bred staffordshire bull terriers?”

Seahawks OT Russell Okung @BDR76 — tweeted, “Great day in Houston. Getting my baby washed.” … Not sure if he’s referring to a child, girlfriend or a car.

Steelers LB James Farrior @JamesFarrior — had some fun with his teammate, Hines Ward, who made news earlier this week when he was mistakenly detained by police: “Damn Hines, stop stealing cars bro. Ur rich:)”

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald — tweeted out a photo of himself and a recognizable former teammate as they were doing a good deed: “Me and @kurt13warner doing fittings of hearing aids in Mexico.

Former Maryland receiver Torrey Smith @TorreySmithWR — apparently is still very excited about being drafted by the Ravens last weekend. So much so that he’s having trouble focusing on his driving: “Sooo I wasn’t paying attention and missed the exit…..just added 30 mins to the trip.”
