#Twoppics – Heartland: Sugarland State Fair Stage Collapse, Iowa Straw Poll, Desmond Bishop

Twoppics, taking a look at what people on Twitter are saying about the hottest stories out of the Heartland…

Audio clip:

IN: It’s tragedy at a Sugarland concert at the Indiana State Fair.  Five people are dead, more than 40 injured after the rigging over the band’s stage collapses into the crowd… FOX News Radio’s @jeffmonosso.  The Indiana State Fair was closed Sunday, but plans are for it to reopen Monday.  The Twittersphere is truly moved by the accident, such as muscians He Is We

…and Actor/singer James Maslow

Sugarland also tweeted about the incident on Saturday night…

IA: Saturday night in Iowa, voters turned out for the state’s Straw Poll.  Michele Bachmann took first, but a third-place finish was enough for Tim Pawlenty to decide that now’s the time to end his bid for the White House.  FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson has more… Twitter just can’t take the Iowa Straw Poll seriously, no matter how hard they try.  Examples come from @JPosnanski

@GabeTheWP

and actor Drew Carey

WI: One of the biggest honors for a pro athlete is the opportunity to meet the President of the United States after winning your sport’s championship.  Even some college champs get the chance.  But it takes a lot to get that invitation…so you don’t want to blow it, right?  Well, Green Bay Packer Desmond Bishop did all the work, but doesn’t get to reap the reward.  After winning the Super Bowl, the Packers finally got their chance to head to DC.  Bishop, though, forgot his ID on the team’s charter.  No ID, no White House.  No White House, no President.  Bishop took to Twitter after the incident, noting he has new motivation for this year…

For fans like @katherine_eliz

and @Root4OU..

…it’s the ultimate tough luck.

I’m @Chris_Hoenig and those are your hot #Twoppics on FOX News Radio.
