Faux Pelini pulled some shenanigans on President’s Day.
He also asked Doug McDermott what's his secret to success.

USA Hockey and St. Louis Blues teammates David Backes, Kevin Shattenkirk and T.J. Oshie also adopted Sochi strays as well.
Russia’s oldest English language newspaper decided to live tweet the Finland-Russia quarterfinal hockey match. Let’s just say it did not end too well but here is how it went down for them.
Meanwhile American cross-country skier Holly Brooks stumbled into a Russian mall.

Faux Pelini seems to be confused by Olympic women’s hockey.
I'm sorry but this is some horrible figure skating, and what's with the sticks and helmets— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 20, 2014
Hockey has the least slutty Olympic outfits— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 20, 2014
FP didn’t seem to be very happen about USA hockey’s last few games.
WHATEVER CANADA, GO BACK TO EUROPE— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 21, 2014
.@NBCOlympics Your hockey games suck lately— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 22, 2014
These 5 goals have given Finland some momentum— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 22, 2014
But at least he trolled someone in the process.
Meanwhile Kenny Bell stuck up for his country.
Be proud of our team an country. Canada got the best of us but we've got a fire to burn Finland. Don't be negative. Positivity people!!!— Kenny Bell (@AFRO_THUNDER80) February 21, 2014
Enough with the negativity!!!! We lost, get over it. It sucks, yea. But we played hard. Enough with the "not first ur last" BS. BE THANKFUL!— Kenny Bell (@AFRO_THUNDER80) February 21, 2014
I can't stand ppl that criticize other for something they themselves can't do. Support or shut up. #AllOrNothing 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸— Kenny Bell (@AFRO_THUNDER80) February 21, 2014
And so begins the mystery of the Sochi restaurant that never was.
This is a restaurant in the Rosa Khutor village area in the mountain cluster. It never opened during the Games. pic.twitter.com/VOX4IPxiew— Evan Doherty (@YSportsEvan) February 23, 2014
Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim went crazy after a controversial charging call was made against Syracuse on Saturday night.
He ended up getting ejected and the Internet did what the Internet does best and made some memes out of it.
Faux Pelini approves of his actions.
I'm inviting Jim Boeheim to join my book club— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 23, 2014
Yesterday’s Daytona 500 had a 6 hour and 22 minute rain delay but it didn’t stop people from congratulating Jimmie Johnson. Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended up winning it late into the night. Rumor has it he said he would get a Twitter account if he won this race so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile Faux Pelini "live tweeted" the Olympic closing ceremonies.

More shenanigans between the Huskers and Faux Pelini twitter accounts.
@Huskers It's insane that the guy who took that photo used hashtags— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 23, 2014
@FauxPelini time travel. What do you think is going on in the Nebraska Athletic Performance Lab?— Nebraska Huskers (@Huskers) February 23, 2014
@Huskers Can you send me back to 12/1/2012 and also do you know where I can buy some food poisoning— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 24, 2014
And last but not least.
OH MY GOD WHAT IS THE SCORE RT @OWHjays: Doug McDermott is 10th on the all-time scoring chart with 2,917 points— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) February 24, 2014
Here is also some interesting Twitter data from the Winter Olympics. According to Twitter Sports (and hat tip to Richard Deitsch at SI), the five most-tweeted about Olympic athletes during the 2014 Winter Olympics were: Japanese figure skater Mao Asada, American hockey player T.J. Oshie, Korean figure skater Kim Yuna, American snowboarder Shaun White and Canadian snowboarder Mark McMorris.
Since the Olympics are over, I will probably shift more of a focus on the tweets of Husker athletes. I think it will be hard to top some of the tweets I gathered during the Olympics but I will try my best to sift through Twitter and continue bringing in some hilarious tweets. The Oscars are coming up on Sunday so there should be plenty of good stuff on Twitter during that awards show. If you haven't read the last edition of This Week on Twitter, you can find it right here. GO BIG RED!
