Bayless, Bush involved in Twitter trash-talk

Twitter is just getting everyone in trouble these days, you guys. First it was the Rashard Mendenhall, then it was Reggie Bush, and now ... no, wait, it's still Reggie Bush.

Except this time, Bush isn't just getting berated by fans for his stance on "enjoying the lockout" -- he's getting involved in a trash-talking affair with the one-and-only Skip Bayless. Sigh.

"Skippy Skipper Skip Bayless said my performance on the field doesn't give me a right to speak my mind! But his performance does!" Bush tweeted over a number of updates, all of which you can read here. "MY BAD! I mean what was I thinking! This guy Skipper put it in so much blood, sweat, and heart into this game all behind a desk! You got it boss! Let me take a step back and bow down to Skippy Bayless! All Hail the great Skipper! He def has my Hall of Fame Vote! Canton here we come!"

Naturally, Bush also did what any grown man would do: challenge Bayless to a weight-lifting contest.

"This is an Official Challenge to 1 on 1 full gear and full contact with Skip Bayless!" Bush tweeted. "Plus a full conditioning drill and weight lifting! If I win he wears a 25 jersey and a dress plus makeup on his show, he wins he gets a full game check! I bet he won't accept my challenge!!! Now put that on SportsCenter! Holla!!!!"

Fortunately, this is Skip Bayless, so he totally backed down and just let it go. Except he didn't. In fact, he kind of challenged Bush to a weight-lifting challenge live on "Cold Pizza." Or something.

"ANY TIME you want to come to Bristol and discuss or debate anything I've said about you, face to face on TV, you are welcome," Bayless tweeted. "ANY TIME you want to meet in Central Park, NYC, and run the 8-mile loop, I'll be there. Then we can hit Gold's & lift weights."

Maybe this is harmless fun. But Bush, as he's told us already, has plenty of time on his hands. And Bayless, as he's already told us, loves to take people to the old gun show. So this is absolutely something we could end up being forced to watch.

Believe it or not Skip is in shape and that dude can run.  I bet he would beat Bush in the 8 miler.

The person on the planet who thinks Skip Bayless is important, is Skip Bayless.... He is horrible...  he is what is worn with the media... He has a bigger ego than the athletes he covers... He seems to think that if he writes/says it, then it should not be questioned... Skip is a Nobody....

To be fair, Bush's career is moreso a product of the hype generated by the media rather than his play on the field.  Him criticizing the media is pretty hilarious.  He'd be nothing without them.

Cool.  Two people I care absolutely nothing about getting into a "feud" that I care even less about.

Yes I know Bayless, epitomy and president.  Sorry one too many shots at the bar tonight and then reading this intelligent diatribe between Mr. Dumba$$ Skipper and Mr. My panties are in a wad because they drafted another guy at my position.  Like all of us do not have someone ready and willing to take our jobs at the drop of a dime.  Get real both of you high profile divas, neither one of you are relevant to anything of any importance, other than your own egos.
