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.

Skip Byaless is an idiot, but Reggie isn't far behind as evidenced by his tweets.  Skip should be just that skipped.  This guy is an absolute fluke, he is the eptiomy of right time right place.  This guy is talentless and it only gets multiplied by the exposure the 4 letter station gives him.  Presidnet Obama please authorize a SEAL team to do the same damn thing to Skippy.  I promise to vote a straight Democratic ticket in the next election.  Please someone end this reign of people thinking athletes let alone Skip Bayless are relevant and have an actual functioning brain cell left in their cranium.

Skip Bayless is a wanna be Jim Gray who is not even as relevant as Gray is. At least Bayless's brother is a GREAT chef, so there must be a smidgen of talent in the Bayless family.

I don't care much for either but I am pretty sure Skip, Skipper worked his butt off to get where he is Reggie.  Not everyone considers "hard work" lifting weights and running on a treadmill.  Most people do that after their work day is over.

Not sure why people hate Skip Bayless no much. He probably insulted their favorite team/athlete once, boo-fricken-hoo. At least Skip is articulate when he expresses his opinions, unlike most of the people on this website. But the real idiot is Reggie Bush, a football player, bashing Skip, a former sportswriter, through an electronic mass medium. Stick to what you're good at, Reggie: cheating, running, and being overrated.

Skip Bayless may make some off-the-wall comments at times, but he at least tells you what he really thinks; that is, he is not a politically correct phony like some sports talkers.  By the way he would destroy Reggie Bush in almost any distance run, surely anything over 4 miles, as he has run 2:47 marathon.  Also he was all-city in baseball as a senior in high school.  But Bush obviously would kick his butt in a weightlifting contest.
