Ryan Babel’s intriguing story about swimming trunks

Find out why he lost so many followers…

Ryan Babel 

There is a common misconception that every single human being has a decent book in them. They don’t. Even some popular authors called things like Dan Brown don’t have a decent book in them.

That’s because, believe it or not, the practice of writing, and keeping the reader’s attention isn’t as easy as some football blogs make it look.

For those of you who have somehow managed to stick with this piece through the first three sentences without becoming aggressively bored and punching something, after this relentless paragraph you’ll find out exactly what happens when people like Ryan Babel start twatting on Twitter, convinced that other people actually give a tupenny ha’penny about their “hilarious” shopping anecdotes.

Start at the bottom, then read upwards, as is the Twitter way.

    As far as short-trouser based anecdotes go, I’ve heard better. Although they do sound like a lovely pair of shorts. I wonder if the Jamaican chap has any left?

    Haha, that’s great. The “Excuse me to mess wit yall timeline!” just tops it off.

    After reading that ridiculous twittering drivel, I can see that Ryan ‘Babel’ is aptly named.

    (I can also why most football players require minders and agents to be with them at all times.)
