Here are the 100 Twitter feeds you should follow if you consider yourself a sports fan

<p> Here are the 100 Twitter feeds you should follow if you consider yourself a sports fan</p>

Twitter can range between being awesome and being the most annoying thing in on the Internet. So to help sports fans figure out which Twitter accounts they should follow, we put together the list of the best 100.

This list contains everything from journalists to athletes to comedians. To make sure there's a broad enough apeal, we tried to keep it national (sorry, the guy who tweets about your high school football team didn't make the list). Feel free to let us know who we missed in the comments. Here's 20-1.

20. Dan Patrick Show,
Category: All Sports, Humor, Commentary
Dan and the Danettes put on one of the better sports radio shows on the airwaves. Their Twitter feed overrunneths our passion bucket.


 

19. Fan Graphs,
Category: Fantasy
The most in-depth fantasy baseball statistics site’s Twitter feed is like the "Moneyball" movie with more FIP and less Brad Pitt.


 

18. Chris Broussard,
Category: NBA, News, Commentary
I’m pretty sure all the NBA news you’ve ever heard has originated from Chris Broussard.


 

17. Buster Olney,
Category: MLB, News, Commentary
Buster Olney is a fount of baseball information. He probably also knows what a “fount” is. (Or is it font?)


 

16. Adam Schefter,
Category: NFL, News
It’s hard to pick a side between Mort and Schefty. We’ll put Schefty higher because he has more followers.


 

15. Trey Wingo, 
Category: NFL, News, Commentary
Trey Wingo doesn't get enough credit for being the smartest and funniest anchor on ESPN. This is my feeble attempt to give him said credit.

 

14. Paul Bissonnette,
Category: Hockey, Humor
Paul Bissonnette plays for the Phoenix Coyotes and doesn’t take himself seriously. His twitter feed makes me want to go drinking with him (that’s the best endorsement I can give.) (Extra Parens: Paul, if you're ever in Nashville and want to go drinking, hit me up at  )


 

13. John Clayton,
Category: NFL, News
The “Professor” knows more about football than you know about yourself. (By the way, the Professor says you’re “probable” for needing to drop 20 pounds.)


 

12. Ozzie Guillen, 
Category: Baseball, Humor
Back in the day, when he was using Twitter to unleash his special brand of Spanglish a lot more, Ozzie would have been #1 on this list. Now, he’s #12 on this list.

11. Kenny Powers, 
Category: Humor
Kenny Powers' Twitter is in. And you’re f---ing out. If you don’t know who Kenny Powers is, you need to immediately go out and purchase the first season of "EastBound and Down". (Not that you need to be told, but the language in this feed is slightly NSFW.)


 

10. Jimmy Traina,
Category: Humor, All Sports
Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard editor is a daily must read for sports fans or who like hot girls, funny videos, lists and weird sports news.


 

9. Jim Rome,
Category: All Sports, Commentary
Read his Tweets with the classic Jim Rome delivery and they’re almost as entertaining as his radio show.


 

8. Rotoworld’s Football Feed,
Category: Fantasy Football, News
This is everything you need to know about fantasy football from breaking news to injuries to who you should pick up now that your first round pick is in a wheelchair. They have feeds for other sports, too, but since it’s football season, this is one's on the list.


 

7. Deadspin,
Category: All Sports, Commentary
It’s not just photos of Brett Favre’s penis. It’s photos of Michael Vick's penis, too.


 

6. Logan Morrison,
Category: Humor, Athlete
The Marlins OF has consistently the best Twitter feed of any athlete in the whole Twitterverse. Our only concern is if he gets traded, it may have to change to @LoMoExpos.


 

5. Eric Stangel,
Category: Humor
The head writer for David Letterman tweets about sports (as well as dead squirrels on cars) and is a lot funnier than you (unless you're Eric Stangel).


 

4. Bill Simmons,
Category: All Sports
The best part of Simmons’ twitter feed is that sometimes he’ll be overcome with rage and fire off a six-tweet series breaking down why both sides of the NBA lockout are complete idiots.


 

3. Onion Sports,
Category: Humor
The Onion is always amazing. This is their sports feed. That’s all.


 

2. Peter King,
Category: NFL, News, Commentary
The ultimate NFL insider. I’m pretty sure the breaking news on Peyton Manning’s career, neck and hairline will originate through this twitter feed.


 

1. Darren Rovell,
Category: All Sports
CNBC and Versus sports business analyst consistently has the most interesting factoids and links around the sports world every day. More than just sports business info, his informative tweets give a context to stories that few other journalists give.
