Mr. T, born Laurence Tureaud, is a national treasure. He's an actor, a wrestler, and a noted pitier of fools. As we send our most gifted Americans to PyeongChang to represent us to the word, it's fitting that one of our greatest living Americans is sending Twitter gold out after them.
Live-tweeting is as competitive as any figure skating tournament, and this week Mr. T has shown that he's one of the world's best. Granted he's got some competition as Leslie Jones has been defending her crown as the greatest Twitter sports commentator of all time, but they take markedly different approaches.
Jones focuses on the details, with acute observations on individual performances and hot takes on sparkly outfits. Mr. T takes the long view. He's enthusiastic about entire sports -- but curling most of all -- and the unimaginable perseverance of these world-class athletes. It's all very wholesome and sweet, to be quite honest.
