Here I am, just enjoying my Sunday night on the couch, fighting off those Sunday scaries.
And then I am suddenly on Twitter, scrolling through my feed, and in between tweets about Manny (bleeping) Machado and the state of the world, there it is.
Skyy Clark — the next savior for Illini Basketball — chilling with... Spider-Man?
In the tweet, we are provided no context. Zero. Zilch.
It looks like we’re in a backyard somewhere where it’s nice outside, which, given the current heat wave, could be just about anywhere.
And Tobey Maguire (spelled Toby in the tweet) is there. Yes, 47-year-old Tobias Vincent Maguire of Spider-Man fame, especially in last year’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
To add to it, Tobey isn’t just hanging at a backyard BBQ with Skyy Clark, he’s donning a Script Illinois jersey.
Like any good journalist, Coleman Hawkins is then asking the real questions.
How tf you know Spider-Man ?— Coleman Hawkins (@colehawk23) August 8, 2022
Yes, Coleman, how “tf” does Skyy Clark know Spider-Man?
Skyy, being the stand-up kid he is, answers.
I’m really that guy bro bro— skyy clark (@skyyclark) August 8, 2022
Well, that clears that up.
Illini Nation is betting on Skyy to really be that guy.
And if he wants to bring some celebs along for the ride, let’s do it.
