Aaron Craft gets engaged and the tweets about it are must-see
Ohio State star guard Aaron Craft fell to a knee over the past week. This caused many a distressed female to grieve it out on social media. The tweets, they are funny.
Huge congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Craft! pic.twitter.com/7MkmzvYE4s— Craft's Roomies (@CRAFTroomies) September 9, 2013
Oh, the emojis.
The news of Ohio State star guard Aaron Craft's engagement to reported longtime sweetheart Amber Petersen (she's studying medical dietetics) has been public for a few days now. My bud Rob Dauster over at NBCSports.com documented some early reaction from disappointed women upon hearing the news. It was good, but barely scratched the surface.
Below, a sampling -- sampling; I've plucked maybe 5 percent of the Twitter meltdown that's ensued, and still ongoing -- from Craft's engagement. Really funny stuff, some of it self-aware, some of it frighteningly earnest. Meet Aaron Craft, college basketball's mainstream heartthrob, now off the market.
