Bob Barry Jr. is a little too flirty on Twitter

11:00 AM EDT on March 23, 2009

If you're the average Oklahoman, you probably think of Bob Barry Jr. as the once-fat Sports Director for KFOR Channel 4 who also hosts a sports talk show on The Sports Animal. You probably don't think of him as the Internet equivalent of one of those creepy old guys who hits on young girls at Russell's or Groovy's.  But now, thanks to some amazingly real stuff he's posted to his Twitter page, that's about to change. Just check out some of tweets he's sent to some of Oklahoma's hottest finest young TV reporters!


To Joleen Chaney:

@JoleenChaney nahhhh...just a JC man. And BTW, the sexy graduate pic does it 4 me (lol). Have a fun weekend cutie..

@JoleenChaney rise & shine rush springs babe ! Get pumped about a Friday ! xoxo, bbj/

To Bobbie Miller:

@BobbieMiller BTW, I tried to send you a DM, but I don't think you're set up for that ??! Let me know cutie... xoxo

@BobbieMiller me 2 cutie...but I should be courtside in some big arena someplace, ya know ? Goes all over me...


To Jaime Cerreta:

@cerretanews I wish sweetheart...don't get me started. So, I get to stay back here (sigh) and watch you (!)

@cerretanews the brown outfit was workin' 4 me yesterday JC - I'm sure the Wal-Mart crowd loved seein' U too ;)

@cerretanews popular & pretty - attractive combo - THAT's why all the followers JC !

Well, if you ever see Chris Hansen at the KFOR studios, and a few minutes later notice a frazzled Bob Barry Jr. running out the front door and getting tackled by a bunch of  guys wearing yellow polo shirts, I guess you'll now know why.

Seriously, what is going on with BBJ?  Maybe his semi-pornographic nickname is getting to him.  If I were to send tweets to my co-workers (and competitors) calling them "cutie" and talking about their "sexy pics" on the internet, I'd probably find myself in the HR office in a couple of days.  That's why the subject matter of my tweets are about the frustrations of watching Tony Crocker play basketball and explaining to others what it's like to suffer through a cold.

Anyway, I guess we should all be thankful that Van Shea Iven doesn't have a Twitter page.  Who knows what tweets"”or on a scarier note"”what direct messages they would send to each other.  We should also hope that Mike Steely's wife never gets a Twitter account.  That would be wrong.
