Retweet of the Day - December 5, 2013

Willie Meggs, the prosecutor investigating accusations the Florida State University quarterback and Heisman Trophy frontrunner Jameis Winston announced that no charges will be filed against the star redshirt freshman. This ends an ordeal than began with an encounter Winston has with a woman one year ago and picked up attention in the media during the past several weeks. Winston is not the first high profile athlete, nor will he be the last, to be accused of violent crime and later cleared.


In the last decade, we've all been aware of allegations of sexual misbehavior by start athletes like Los Angeles Lakers gurad Kobe Bryant and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Today's retweet is one of a select few that found a clever and tasteful spin on this unsettling story. Charles Keith (@12thManChuck15) incorporates the incident into one of the oldest joke set-ups in the book:

"So Kobe Bryant, Ben Roethlisberger, and Jameis Winston walk into a bar..." 
I'm sure Kobe empathizes with Winston's position.
