Dude you effed up this time. - Marc Serota
In what some might think is a counter-productive effort, Milwaukee centerfielder Nyjer Morgan is admitting to cheating on his girlfriend ... on Twitter.
I did something horrible today nation I cheated on my girlfriend I ruined her life and I will pay the price for this I loved her but was bad— Nyjer Morgan - T Dot (@TheRealTPlush) January 15, 2013
She caught me as much as I loved her I'm just a cheater I'm sorry— Nyjer Morgan - T Dot (@TheRealTPlush) January 15, 2013
The truth will come out— Nyjer Morgan - T Dot (@TheRealTPlush) January 15, 2013
Now, maybe this is a grand trick for attention because Morgan is totally not known for that. And perhaps this is a practical joke played on him by a friend (a nice excuse), or perhaps it's actually his girlfriend on his phone exacting revenge.
Obviously this is all speculation but let's pretend for a moment that 1) it's actually Nyjer tweeting for himself and 2) he's not lying. Hey, we're speculating. I have some questions:
1. How is this possibly a good idea?!
2. What woman on which planet would want the attention for her dude being a scumbag?
3. Do you want a girl that would accept that attention and shame and still stick with you?
THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT
4. How quickly will the "my account was hacked" line of defense be used? I bet it's used before I'm done with this silly little article.
It turns out No. 4 was right all around -- allegedly. Morgan claimed to be hacked, but later deleted that Tweet, too, before dropping this bit of information:
Nation! i'm going to change my twitter handle. Not excited about this! MLB security and my lawyers are going to figure this out! Stay Tuned!— Nyjer Morgan - T Dot (@TheRealTPlush) January 15, 2013
