Y@ Speak: Worst week ever edition

Posted By on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 at 12:39 PM

There's really no other way to say it: this week totally sucked. Bama defeated LSU in Monday night's BCS National Championships, which made the presence of thousands of crimson-clad drunks slurring "ROWLLL TODDD" all around New Orleans even more painful. Then there were shootings in nearly every New Orleans neighborhood (except for the "hospitality district," so good job, everyone!). Then the San Francisco 49ers narrowly beat the Saints, which ended the season — and the best excuse to get daytime drunk every weekend — for us. It was a bad week, but if you weren't murdered or teabagged while unconscious at the Bourbon Street Krystal Burger then consider yourself lucky.

Also, this week we're trying out this new thing called Storify to present Y@ Speak. It makes it way easier to retweet, reply to or follow the Twitter users featured in the roundup. Let us know if you dig it, or if we should scrap it. Hit the jump for the roundup.
