Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week (September 26th-October 2nd)

Another week of sports brings another smorgasbord of athlete tweets that we're serving up. With the NBA lockout appearing like it will end later rather than sooner, basketball players like Brandon Rush indicated that they're considering back-up plans. The sports world also had plenty to say about the Cowboys' collapse in Detroit, and most of it wasn't too nice. But on the topic of collapses, Major League Baseball offered us arguably one of the most memorable nights in its history -- and plenty of athletes were riveted by the action unfolding simultaneously in Tampa, Baltimore and Atlanta.

As usual, we've scoured our timeline from the past week to bring you what we believe to be the best of the best that athletes have to offer via Twitter. 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 weeks champion athlete tweeter was Colts punter Pat McAfee, a frequent selection thus far in our series.

Please congratulate him on his tweeting prowess by giving him a follow @PatMcAfeeShow.
