Chipper Jones Live Tweeted Ohio State’s Natty Win With Selfies

Nice Move

When Chipper Jones isn’t marrying former playmates or moonlighting as the deer Grim Reaper, he’s acting like a goon on Twitter, and it’s fantastic. Case in point, the former Braves third baseman just live tweeted the College Football Playoff Championship game communicating almost exclusively through selfies. Someone get this man a Snapchat (or hire him as the Braves hitting coach to resurrect an offense that’s deader than every antlered beast that dares wander onto Jones’s ranch).

Jones had a lot of hot takes throughout the game, like his astonishment at Oregon’s first drive.


(With a “Tommy Boy” reference to boot, a film that was released his rookie year.)

Chipper also had respect for Ezekiel Elliot.


Then he got all excited because his former walk up song was playing.


He wasn’t too wild about Oregon going for it on 4th and goal instead of taking the points so early in the game. No surprise coming from a hitter who made a Hall of Fame career taking what was given him by the pitchers and turning it into a hit. His offensive mantra transcends sports.


His thoughts on Urban Meyer’s offseason QB controversy.


Ohio State’s turnover problems were rough for number 10 to watch.


(Also, possibly his O-face.)

Something about the Oregon D.


On how horny the NFL is going to be for Ezekiel Elliot.


When he was SO over this blowout.


A congrats to Ohio State.


And just for shits and gigs he RT’d Harvey Updyke.


It wouldn’t surprise me if ESPN, Fox, or TBS have at some point since his retirement reached out to Jones to do some sort of studio or booth work, but if they haven’t, they need to slide into his DMs, and by that I mean call his agent, and make an offer as soon as possible. Especially TBS, who every October makes baseball fans suffer through the visual and audio waterboarding that is their dogshit attempt at emulating the infinitely more entertaining NBA on TNT studio show with CRAZY personalities like…Gary Sheffield. Between the total lack of fucks about what other people think when providing his opinion, the women, and the deeply ingrained southernness, Jones is basically already baseball’s Charles Barkley.

Regardless of all that, you keep being you, Chip.
