Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week (November 7th-13th)

Posted: Updated:

The sports pages were dominated by one story last week: the sexual abuse scandal that has rocked Penn State. Like the greater public, most of the athletic world was shocked by the alleged crimes. Also like the rest of us, many athletes felt compelled to weigh in on the matter via Twitter. We compiled a few of the notable thoughts from various athletes playing different sports. Fortunately, last week also contained some lighter tweets of note as well, such as former that by former tweet of the week champion Chris Kluwe weighing in on his idea of capitalism and Pau Gasol's plea for a dire wolf.

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.

Congratulate this week's champion: longtime tweeter, first time winner, Logan Morrison of the Florida Marlins.
