Although the U.S. Open roared toward its conclusion and the NFL season kicked off last week, the thoughts and tweets of many athletes -- at least later in the week -- were focused on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
That doesn't mean that there weren't plenty of random observations and categorical imperatives tweeted by athletes. We had plenty of those, too. But there were more somber preoccupations as well.
As usual, we've scoured our timeline from the past week to bring you what we believe to be the best of the best. Vote on which athlete you believe had this week's best tweet. The winner will be given remarkable Interweb cred and 140 characters worth of salutations via the @HuffPostSports twitter account.
Last week's champion athlete tweeter was Indianpolis Colts tight Jacob Tamme.
