Grizzlies Player Eases Pain Of Losing By Successfully Asking Out Miss Tennessee

That's what you call picking yourself up and dusting yourself off.

Posted on

Quincy Pondexter was a surprising key playoff contributor for the Memphis Grizzlies during the playoffs. But the Grizzlies were swept by the Spurs this week, meaning that Pondexter's offseason has begun.

How did he decide to spend it? Well: first, he posed his followers a question.

Who won Miss Tennessee this year?

The best part about this is that he doesn't even know who won Miss Tennessee, nor can he be troubled to use Google.com — it's an internet search engine — to find the answer. Fortunately, Twitter works very well when you have 38,000 followers.

McDonald's reference! But here we are folks: 2013 is the year when love between famous people blooms after completely undirected Twitter inquiries.

Oh totally single? Ditto ... Date? Lol @MissTN2012

I mean, Pondexter does come off as kind of hilarious in this whole exchange. "Date? Lol" — "Marriage? Lol" — "Baby? Lol"

@QuincyPondexter you got it! We've got an audience waiting apparently!

There you have it, folks. It's a sequel to You've Got Mail called 140 Characters. Things got even better when journalist-turned-Grizzlies-exec John Hollinger dropped some nice commentary on the situation.

@QuincyPondexter with the ultimate heat check.

Have fun, you crazy kids. If you need something to talk about, I recommend Quincy's dog Buckets.
