Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week (August 29th-September 4th)

With the NFL and college football gearing up to begin their respective seasons and the rest of us looking forward to a long holiday weekend, last week was light on breaking sports news. This paucity of trending sports terms allowed the athlete Twitterverse to really get back to its roots: Idle observation and witty one liners. From the relative greatness of Scrappy Doo to the deliciousness of the milk at the bottom of a bowl of a particular sugary cereal, this week in athlete tweets marks a return to simpler times.

As usual, we've scoured our timeline from the past week to bring you what we believe to be the best of the best. Vote on which athlete you believe had this week's best tweet. The winner will be given remarkable Interweb cred and 140 characters worth of salutations via the HuffPost Sports twitter account.
