“Horny” Olympic tweet a “mistake” by Denver Post reporter

Mashabjohn henderson tweet.jpgle has given The Denver Post’s sportswriter John Henderson “the gold medal for tweeting out something pervy during the summer Olympics.”

Henderson told the Denver Westword that the post was a mistake. It was supposed to be sent to a specific Twitter user he was having a direct conversation with.

Her comments made me horny. Not any athlete,” he stresses, adding, “Good Lord, that came on the heels of a blog about a 16-year-old girl? I really hope nobody made that connection.”

Deadspin adds:

Oh, OK. That clears that up. Though now we can’t help but picture Henderson sitting there along press row at the pool deck, just sex messaging away in between occasional glances at the 4 x 200 free relay. But at least he never tried to claim he was hacked.”

And now, I can’t help but read the rest of his tweets with my “dirty mind” nob cranked up a bit.
