Monday’s news surrounding health and safety in sports:
* Twitter isn’t for everyone. Believe or it not, it might be the right way for NFL players to relate to second graders.
Mashable.com reported on how a second-grade class corrected the tweets of some NFL players.
Second graders at a New York school had some help from Twitter for their grammar lessons, using the tweets of NFL players to correct spelling, punctuation and sentence structure.
The students corrected one gem from 49ers’ Chris Culliver who posted, “I pray to God I’m never dieing broke” (tweet has since been deleted), along with other statuses from Patriots’ Wes Welker and Lions’ Titus Young.”
