This week, we’re taking a little different approach by giving fictitious (aka make believe) awards for each of the tweets that we highlight.
Of course, we’re begin as we always do with the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week, which also could have won the award for the “Best HBD tweet” if it hadn’t been filled with so much irony. (Note for readers over 40: “HBD” stands for Happy Birthday)
Fayetteville’s Blake Coulter sent the tweet to his sister, Kylee Coulter. The irony is in the sad fact that Kylee — a University of Nebraska-Omaha basketball signee — underwent knee surgery on Tuesday. Also, that’s twin brother, Trey Coulter, in the pictures. Trey and Blake signed football scholarships with Arkansas Tech, making the Coulters one of the more talented families in Northwest Arkansas and beyond.
They’re also Champion tweeters:

We hope surgery went well.
We’ll kick off the rest of our fake awards with several other solid “HBD” tweets from the past week.
