Alabama Football: Jesse Williams Benches 600, Blows Up Twitter


Crimson Tide defensive lineman Jesse Williams may have had a hand in the Twitter outage that devastated millions of desk jockeys this morning, as well as any reports that tremors were felt across the Tuscaloosa County area.

The Brisbane, Australia native Tweeted this morning that he had joined the 600 Club during his workout, boosting 600 pounds on the bench press.

The resulting wave of congratulatory Tweets from Tide fans came right around the time Twitter experienced an outage that lasted, by our count, long enough for Williams to finish his workout and have a power shake before – presumably – knocking over a few brick walls and towing a friend’s car to the shop without the aid of a vehicle.

He also made time to reTweet us. Thanks, big guy.
