In addition to the usual suspects, this week’s edition of Hit The Deck! welcomes 26 new players to the fold (with a couple of dropouts because they were pretty boring this week). In addition to the travel section, I’ve added new categories covering food (very important), pop culture, weather, rants and words of wisdom. As a bonus, I’ve included several pictures direct from postings!
One Hundred and Forty Characters (or less):
What can I say? One-liners are what Twitter is all about.

TheGarfoose Dirk Hayhurst: Holy Hasselhoff! What is it with stuff flying at Price’s head tonight? #Rays That’s scary, really scary. > Don’t worry folks, one of Maddon’s out-of-the-box drills in big league spring training is flinging jagged bats at us to prepare us. #Rays [After broken bat grazed Price’s head.]
toriihunter48 Torii Hunter: My son Torii jr will have his license to drive next week. He wants to drive my car to mall. I told him to catch a yellow cab. Is that bad? > I’m going to get him a tractor with some 24s and a navi system. I really want him to be safe. Lol…..

Packing a suitcase and hitting the road can be entertaining, humorous, boring or all of the above. Here’s what some of my favorite tweeps had to say on the topic during the past few days.
