IMPORTANT: Halladay, Beltran take social media to a new level
Professional athletes everywhere, the social media bar has been raised thanks to Roy Halladay and Carlos Beltran.
In my estimation, 99.9 percent of professional athletes on social media are boring. They never say anything interesting. Good team win? Going to shake off the loss and get back at it again tomorrow? Hard at work? #riseandgrind? Gee, thanks.
That remaining 0.1 percent can be pretty good though. For example, the great Roy Halladay joined Twitter yesterday (@DocHalladay32) and posted a photo of him piloting a plane to Crystal Lake, Florida:
Flying to Crystal River, stuff you can't do as a player. Get your bingo baseball tickets email@example.com pic.twitter.com/Hc9bHwFdbd— Roy Halladay (@DocHalladay32) March 12, 2014
File that one under something an active player would never ever ever be allowed to do.
Doc's selfie not doing it for you though? How about a video of Carlos Beltran in cat facepaint on a roller coaster? Behold:
