The_REAL_Orel: Hey there Tweeters! I'm taking my daughter to Coaching Festival this weekend. Stay tuned for lots of Orel updates!

The_REAL_Orel: Sorry, kids. Not interested in your reefer. I say no to drugs, which you'd know if you read my memoir "Between the Lines".

The_REAL_Orel: Been waiting this porta-potty line behind a group of gay hippiesters in matching tank tops that say "Queens of Leon" for almost an hour.

The_REAL_Orel: Yep, daughter ditched me! Steve Sax used to pull the porta-potty trick everytime he wanted to hit a titty bar. How did I fall for it again?!

The_REAL_Orel: So hungry, but all I could find are seitan vegan-kabobs at this Meat Is Murder MorrissEats Food Truck. Could really go for a Dodger Dog.

The_REAL_Orel: Okay, I have been informed that the sno-cone I just ate was filled with Ecsta-PCP. Is there a doctor or trainer available!?!

The_REAL_Orel: I think I just saw Fernando Valenzuela, but he was naked, and his entire body was painted gold. Confusing, but he looked so beautiful!

The_REAL_Orel: DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN OR WHERE PINK FLOYD IS SUPPOSED TO START PLAYING!!?

The_REAL_Orel: WOOOOOO! I haven't felt this free since the wife and I had a sex threesome with my Cy Young Award back in that wanton winter of '88!

The_REAL_Orel: Hanging out at a secret party in the LCD Soundsystem trailer. Lindsay Lohan keeps begging me to finger her with my pitching arm.

The_REAL_Orel: Me & my new best friend DJ Steve Aoki constructed a giant Justin Bieber statue made of Sobe Urban Lifestyle Water bottles. Gonna burn it on Sunday!

The_REAL_Orel: The fat guy from the Gnarles Barkley band is giving free back massages in the Vicks Vapor Rub Chillout Tent! CRAZY indeed!

The_REAL_Orel: They won't let me into the VIP area for Jay-Z! I can't believe this! I AM OREL FUCKING HERSHISER! I can still throw a ball 87 goddamn miles an hour!

The_REAL_Orel: Remember when Kirk Gibson hit a game-winning homer and did that pump-fist thing!? I was fucking THERE! So let me in or I'll pump my fist into your FACE!

The_REAL_Orel:OK, smoked some hash out of a gas mask bong with Bruce Willis and a couple guys from the Animal Collection. They said it will mellow me out.

The_REAL_Orel: This Cobrasnake guy says he's a famous photographer and wants to take a picture of me with my junk tucked between my legs. Who's VIP now!?

The_REAL_Orel: Had to run and hide from security after choking Sly Stone because I accidentally thought he was Ricky Henderson.

The_REAL_Orel: Spent a few hours getting my shit together at the American Apparel Naughty Nurses Emergency Station. Could do another one of those sno-cones now.

The_REAL_Orel: WHERE ARE MY FLIP-FLOPS!?! I CAN'T FIND MY FUCKING FLIP-FLOPS!!!! I AM KING OF COACHELLA AND I DEMAND MY SANDALS BE RETURNED NOW!!!!!
