Matt Barkley Lights Up UCLA Twitter Troll

By now you've probably seen this infamous YouTube video of rapper 50 Cent making perhaps the worst ceremonial first pitch at any Major League Baseball game ever. But did it remind you of a certain Orange County-bred quarterback heading into his second NFL season?

Normally when it comes to dissing notables via Twitter, that would be the end of it, save for perhaps a comment or three from one's followers--even when adding an @ to the target, as @UCLA_Nation did to @MattBarkley.

But then again, Newport Beach-born Barkley, the pride of USC and Mater Dei High School, is still in his 20s and not yet verbally wounded enough to let it go--amazing when you consider he plays in freakin' Philadelphia. So the tweet obviously got his attention:
