Bayless, Bush involved in Twitter trash-talk

Twitter is just getting everyone in trouble these days, you guys. First it was the Rashard Mendenhall, then it was Reggie Bush, and now ... no, wait, it's still Reggie Bush.

Except this time, Bush isn't just getting berated by fans for his stance on "enjoying the lockout" -- he's getting involved in a trash-talking affair with the one-and-only Skip Bayless. Sigh.

"Skippy Skipper Skip Bayless said my performance on the field doesn't give me a right to speak my mind! But his performance does!" Bush tweeted over a number of updates, all of which you can read here. "MY BAD! I mean what was I thinking! This guy Skipper put it in so much blood, sweat, and heart into this game all behind a desk! You got it boss! Let me take a step back and bow down to Skippy Bayless! All Hail the great Skipper! He def has my Hall of Fame Vote! Canton here we come!"

Naturally, Bush also did what any grown man would do: challenge Bayless to a weight-lifting contest.

"This is an Official Challenge to 1 on 1 full gear and full contact with Skip Bayless!" Bush tweeted. "Plus a full conditioning drill and weight lifting! If I win he wears a 25 jersey and a dress plus makeup on his show, he wins he gets a full game check! I bet he won't accept my challenge!!! Now put that on SportsCenter! Holla!!!!"

Fortunately, this is Skip Bayless, so he totally backed down and just let it go. Except he didn't. In fact, he kind of challenged Bush to a weight-lifting challenge live on "Cold Pizza." Or something.

"ANY TIME you want to come to Bristol and discuss or debate anything I've said about you, face to face on TV, you are welcome," Bayless tweeted. "ANY TIME you want to meet in Central Park, NYC, and run the 8-mile loop, I'll be there. Then we can hit Gold's & lift weights."

Maybe this is harmless fun. But Bush, as he's told us already, has plenty of time on his hands. And Bayless, as he's already told us, loves to take people to the old gun show. So this is absolutely something we could end up being forced to watch.

I'm sorry but I don't see all the buzz around Khloe?  Kim on the other hand...Memo to Reggie:  You need to start learning how to "take the high road."  You are showing the general public exactly why Casserly passed on you in the draft and confirming what he said about your maturity (or rather lack of) during your pre-draft interview.

Skip Bayless has done a ton more in his professional career than Reggie Bush has done in his.  If you don't know who he is you clearly don't follow sports.  Well mainstream sports anyway.  Can anyone tell me what good has ever come out of twitter? Why does anyone feel the need to follow the non-sensible ramblings of famous and semi-famous people.

All professional athletes should stop using Twitter.  The only thing it does is get you into troubleand they aren't making any money off of it. talk about an organized form of stalking.  For example someone tweets Reggie is at Ruth's Chris and the next thing you know the paparazzi is there snapping photos and bothering him.  Obviously twitter is a ticking time bomb and it is only a matter of time before athletes put their foot in their mouth.

I may not agree with everything Skip Bayless has to say on a particular topic, but I do appreciate his (apparent) honesty and tendency to criticize athletes who deserve some criticism and otherwise have never dealt with that type of adversity before.

You are the man Skip.

Awesome!  Next time I disagree with someone I'm challenging them to a weight lifting contest.
