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.
Are you familiar with the True Detective Season 2 meme? I should take a step back. Are you familiar with the HBO series True Detective? The first season starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisiana State Police detectives investigating a ritualistic murder. The series will be an anthology and feature a new cast and new story for each new set of episodes.
The announcement of this plan for the show and the subsequent critical success of the first season has led to speculation on Twitter on who will be starring in the next go-round, and by speculation, I mean jokes. The True Detective Season 2 meme is very simple: Find a picture of people that you would love to see solve crimes together and tweet it with the hashtag #TrueDetectiveSeason2.
Last week, Marquette's official main account tweeted out a picture of new men's basketball coach Steve Wojciechowski signing his contract.
Now, on it's own, this is almost enough to warrant Tweet of the Week. Not only for the face value, but for reasons that are almost too much to get into at this point. But while the irony value of this tweet is potentially fantastic, Paint Touches went and threw down a trump card.
I mean, come on. Two beloved old timers who have seen it all, teaching the new guy the ropes as they all work together to solve the biggest case of their lives. The thing practically writes itself. Of course, the main attraction there is watching Fr. Wild's folksy charm at work on witnesses, criminals, district attorneys, other cops, etc. Tell me you wouldn't watch every second of this. I dare you to try and lie to me like that.
