Yet another NFL quarterback has been forced to address comments made by an imposter claiming to be them on Twitter. You may recall that Ben Roethlisberger had to go on the offensive to dispel rumors that he had skin cancer after his Twitter doppelganger claimed that he did.
This time, it’s Chad Pennington.
‘I need to send out a press release or something!” Pennington laughed after Tuesday’s organized team activity. “Can somebody please let the world know I don’t have Twitter or Facebook or any of those things?”
I find it humorous that people would even believe that Chad Pennington has a Twitter account in the first place. We all know Pennington lacks the arm strength to type an entire 140 character tweet in one sitting. Most of the Real Chad Pennington tweets would get to about 100 characters before whatever message he was trying to covey began drifting off short of the target.
Nevertheless, the impostor has come up with some pretty comical tweets.

You know, I can actually imagine Pennington saying something along those lines.
And just because it’s somewhat related, if you didn’t catch Conan last night, here is his bit on Twitter. It’s pretty awesome.
