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.
Last September, we featured a tweet from Paint Touches co-founder Andrei Greska when he coined the hashtag #AutumnIsComing to celebrate the explosive debut of Marquette volleyball outside hitter Autumn Bailey. It turns out that Mr. Greska's ideas aren't merely limited to just crafting topical hashtags.
After we tweeted about Marquette hosting the 2014 Big East volleyball tournament, we included this tweet:
Oh, and lest we forget: #AutumnIsComing— Anonymous Eagle (@AnonymousEagle) July 25, 2014
That prompted this response from Greska:
BRILLIANT. Such a simple Photoshop job, adding Bailey's head to the iconic picture of Eddard Stark from the first episode of the HBO hit series Game Of Thrones, but still so fantastic.
Bailey was named the Big East's Freshman of the Year in 2013 and has to be considered a serious contender for Player of the Year in 2014. Marquette opens the season on August 30th as a part of the Colorado State Rams Classic, with the home opener coming in a day/night doubleheader on September 12th.
