Contrary to popular belief, Miami’s head coach was NOT one of over 175 million twitter users when someone was posing as him near the end of last season. As of yesterday however, that story has changed, and the short-in-stature, tall-in-influence leader of the RedHawks has officially joined the Twitter ranks.
Over 900 RedHawks and college hockey fans alike had already followed Da Coach on his first day on twitter, likely in thanks to ESPN Sportscenter anchor John Buccigross’ (@Buccigross) shout out. Now over 1,000 followers, Blasi didn’t waste any time catching up with old friends.
Blasi said a quick hello to 2007 graduate Nate Davis (not currently on Twitter), as well as last year’s captain Carter Camper (@c_camps11) and fan favorite Justin Vaive (@Vaiver22). Hobey Baker Award winner Andy Miele (@Andy_Miele) also jumped in on a little hazing by insulting Blasi for being vertically challenged: “I am no longer the shortest guy on twitter, everyone welcome @coachblasi #legend #shouldagivenmemoreicetime”
Blasi is sure to provide great insights to the season as well as a good amount of comedic relief along the way. Follow @CoachBlasi now by heading over to twitter.com/coachblasi.
You can also follow Redskin Warriors at twitter.com/redskinwarriors, or by clicking the Twitter link in the top right corner of the blog. I’ve even got all of the current RedHawks and a few of the older ones in this list.
