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 Worthless is a douche bag.  Oh yeah, he's also a whiny, little troll.

I used to enjoy that show on ESPN when Woody was on it. Since he is gone, I have watched maybe 5 minutes.

I have nothing personal against SB, but I do believe he speaks often times ONLY to incite and raise reaction. That is how he is/was paid as a writer too so that is sort of his job. Fortunately for me, I have the ability to change the channel which I do.

If Bush wants to tweet his thoughts, so be it. The market will flush out it's relevance over time. I believe Bush knowingly cheated while at USC so I don't pay attention to his thoughts anyway.

Why is anyone paying any attention to anything that Skip Bayless says? If we ignore that grunting animal, he will go away.

Skip Bayless is an absolute moron and the only reason why he is on t.v is because ESPN knows he's an idiot and he pisses people off, thats why they keep him around.
