10 Twitter Accounts to Follow if You Like El Paso Sports
With the newly-crowned champion of NCAA Men's Basketball being UConn - lead by El Pasoan Tristen Newton - it got me thinking about getting the ball rollin' on El Paso Sports.
West Texas has some awesome talent, and El Paso has not only stellar athletes but also some MAJOR minor-league action.
Check out the Twitter accounts below and take a follow - plus follow KLAQ here, too!

9. Steve Kaplowtiz - Steve needs no introduction... but if I were to give him one of course I would call him a big stupid jerk. The BEST big stupid jerk though, and the first to know when sports get real over the airwaves.

8. Adrian Broaddus - There's no Sportstalk on 600 ESPN without Adrian Broaddus. He truly is the next Steve Kaplowitz and he's comin' in HOT on Steve's tail, so give yourself a head start and follow Adrian. His live tweets during games are essential when you can't get yourself in front of a TV.
7. Colin Deaver - Not only does Deavs not miss a beat, he literally sees everything. And he sees it first. He is so damn tall.
