The Marquette Related Tweet Of The Week: 6/3-6/9

The look of a watched man. - Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Did not see this one coming, that's for sure.

Here at Anonymous Eagle, we're hip to all the latest trends on the internet... or so we tell ourselves. We know how much the kids today like to keep in touch and communicate through social media. In particular, we're big fans of the service known the world over as Twitter. Each week, we'll bring you a tweet that we found particularly interesting/funny/thought provoking/ridiculous that has some kind of Marquette connection to it.

The big news in the Twitter world on Friday was the Central Intelligence Agency firing up their verified account.

Ah, comedy.  This lead to all sorts of jokes about domestic spying and redacted documents and so forth, exactly the kind of thing that you'd expect when THE FLIPPING CIA joins Twitter.

After the initial jokemaking subsided, SB Nation's very own Spencer Hall, founder of Every Day Should Be Saturday, realized the important potential of what could be done with the CIA easily accessible on Twitter.

Look, as Marquette fans, we have our own checkered history with Tom Crean.  Yes, he bailed on a team that was loaded for a deep NCAA tournament run to take the at the time terrible Indiana job.  Yes, he hired Buzz Williams as an assistant and put Buzz into place to take over the program.  Yes, Buzz Williams wouldn't have been able to do what he did at Marquette without what Tom Crean had already done to raise the profile of the program.

So, say what you will about him.  The fact that his ridiculous postgame handshake antics after a loss and banner raising after a loss have earned him a reputation where the esteemed Mr. Hall is 1) aware of Tom Crean and 2) completely justified to report him to the CIA is HILARIOUS.

As a follow up, Hall tweeted this:

As you can guess, the picture in question is Crean's amazing brain dead stare that showed up on Big Ten Network during this past college hoops season.  Brilliant.  Just brilliant.
