Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week (September 12-September 18)

Not surprisingly, most professional athletes are sports fans. When they're not playing sports they're often at home watching sports. Whether it was Monday Night Football or the welterweight bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Victor Ortiz, athletes seemed particularly transfixed by their peers this week. Of course, others were having password problems and some were flexing their vocabulary.

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 @HuffPostSports twitter account.

Last week's champion athlete tweeter was Croatian tennis player Ivo Karlovic.
