Venting, even a tad, has its rewards, so says Braves third-baseman Chipper Jones.
Jones took to Twitter on Thursday to complain about his accommodations at New York’s Grand Hyatt hotel, according to Deadspin.com. He was in New York for the Braves’ series against the Mets.
Chipper, whose Twitter moniker is @RealcJ10, complained about the hotel’s AC, his bed and even the movie channels.
@RealcJ10 first tweeted, “If anyone was thinkin about stayin at the Grand Hyatt in NY,dont! My AC is set on 65 and its north of 80 in here. Like a freaken sauna!”
He next tweeted to his 100,817 followers: “The movie channels dont work and the beds make my back spasm up! Am i complaining too much? Im sorry, gotta vent to someone. Love yall!!!”
Evidently the Midtown Manhattan hotel’s management got wind of the tweet rant because soon afterward there must have been a knock at Jones’ door.
“Ahh the power of social media,” Jones’ last tweet said. “TV guy just showed up at my door. Didnt even have to call the front desk. See what happens when u vent a tad? “
This is the celebrated 40-year-old third baseman’s last season with the Braves.
