Bob Ryan says he’s never heard of Twix and we’re not even sure how that’s possible

  Bob Ryan says he’s never heard of Twix and we’re not even sure how that’s possible The Virginia Tech Hokies had themselves a night on Saturday against Boston College as they forced the Eagles to turn the ball over 5 times. Check out all those turnovers right here!

There are certain things that you just accept an older person is probably not going to be aware of or understand.

TikTok? Absolutely.

How to request an Uber or Lyft? That’s understandable.

Fake burger patties? Yeah, we can see how that would be confusing.

Twix? Uhhh…Twix seems pretty self-explanatory, right? A staple of your grocery, gas station, and convenience store candy aisle since 1967. We’ve lived in the post-Twix world for quite some time now and you’d imagine that anyone who has existed in America for the better part of the last 40-50 years has seen a few Twix ads in their day, let alone eaten a bunch of them.

NFL implements COVID policy changes; Raiders players fined

  NFL implements COVID policy changes; Raiders players fined In response to the growing number of positive COVID-19 tests around the league, the NFL is taking action. In a call with all 32 teams the league office laid out a slew of new policy changes, and sternly warned teams about the consequences of not following them. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports In the memo recapping the call, which you can read courtesy of this tweet from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, they laid out some new protocols.

Don’t include Around the Horn contributor and former Boston Globe writer Bob Ryan among them.

“Surely Bob is joking,” you say. To which we reply, we assure you he is not.

How can a lifer sportswriter and longtime ESPN personality, a guy who has spent his adult life surrounded by advertising during sporting events, not know about Twix? It’s Twix! Like, if you asked 100 people to name every American candy bar they could think of, 99 of them would probably say Twix in the first five choices, right? Twix advertises during MLB games, which includes Boston Red Sox games. People have made whole debates out of the proper way to eat Twix bars. This is madness!

Attorneys offer surprising defense for men charged in Ahmaud Arbery killing

  Attorneys offer surprising defense for men charged in Ahmaud Arbery killing For the first time on network TV, attorneys on both sides of the case speak with "48 Hours" about the viral video of the fatal shooting — what they say it shows and what it doesn't.The shooting death of Arbery, 25, is a story about a mother's relentless pursuit for the truth of what happened to her son. It's also a case that has raised questions about race and racism, and whether local authorities tried to quash the initial investigation.

There have been Twix Super Bowl ads, for Chrissake. We know Bob watches the Super Bowl!

Even more amazing is that Bob wasn’t tipped off to the existence of Twix by a commercial or a trip to the store. It was, of course, a tweet.

True to form, Bob refused to relent on the pushback he got and stood his Twix-less ground, presuming that the popular candy items needs help due to its lack of consumer awareness…

According to Eat This, Twix is the fifth most-popular candy bar in America by sales volume. So they’re probably cool either way, Bob.
