At a certain point this week, you couldn’t have made it far on Twitter without coming across the latest news about Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito.
Yesterday we heard that his Ferrari got wrecked by some dude with a baseball bat. At this point many people were cringing and kind of laughing, because, you know, the bully got bullied (or something like that).Then we found that the dude who did it was Incognito.
Richie Incognito says taking a baseball bat to his Ferrari was just “self-expression.” http://t.co/e6jAlGvBws

People still had some laughs at his expense, but I feel like a lot of red flags went up at that point as well. And now today, 24 hours later, Incognito has been admitted to a psychiatric care center.
We have reached the point when this topic is outside any sports commentator’s pay grade, right? I really do not need to hear what Herman Edwards or Michael Wilbon or anybody else thinks about Incognito’s psychiatric well-being. But you better believe that won’t stop talking heads from yelling at one another with HOT SPORTS TAKES about WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE DOLPHINS BULLYING SCANDAL.
That should then result in some real special insights from those enjoying the anonymous courage of Twitter. Things are going to get ugly, folks. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
So with that said, let’s proceed and focus on some lighthearted Twitter topics from this week.
