KROD Listener Accidentally Tags Wrong Roy Williams In Tweet

As many of you may know, 600 ESPN El Paso is very active on Twitter. In fact, Tuesdays on Sportstalk are known as “Twitter Tuesday” and are sponsored by Cinemark Theaters. Twitter has become such a big part of our afternoon drive sports talk show that the volume of Tweets often exceed the number of phone calls we take during our three-hour daily broadcast.

There are no rules to proper Tweeting by our listeners during our show, but occasionally mistakes happen on social media. Today, a Twitter mistake happened to be noticed by a former NFL safety with over 25 thousand followers. As soon as he Tweeted out the error by our loyal listener, the rest of our Twitter followers swarmed in on the poor guy like a pack of hungry wolves.

The entire incident started Friday during the 10th Annual Ray Mickens Celebrity Weekend Golf Tournament. One of our regular listeners, “Minnesota” Marc Schultz played golf with former NFL receiver and Odessa native Roy Williams. He was so excited about his golf partner that he tweeted out this picture.

The only problem with Marc’s tweet is that he tagged former Oklahoma Sooners star and Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams. The “other” Williams happened to respond to Schultz’s picture tweet earlier today with this message.

The actual Roy Williams that Marc was referring to is on Twitter and his handle is @RDub411. However, the former receiver has only 160 followers and has not Tweeted since last December. A mistake of this magnitude deserved a good Twitter punishment and Marc agreed to take the Baba Booey profile for his Avatar.

In case you are not familiar with Baba Booey, it is the nickname for Gary Dell’Abate, the longtime producer for the Howard Stern Show. It is also a popular term on 600 ESPN El Paso to describe a listener that does the unthinkable. In the case of Minnesota Marc, his Tweet earned instant Baba Booey status. In the process, it allowed fellow listener Danny Mo to remove the Baba Booey Twitter Avatar that he had proudly displayed for more than six months.

The only question left to answer is who gets the ultimate trophy, my signed Baba Booey baseball. Danny Mo or Minnesota Marc?

Steve Kaplowitz.
