It all started with a tweet.

Which sent me searching as fast as I have ever searched for anything in my life, as “Survivor” and Cliff Robinson are two things that I am very in to. And that’s where I found this on a well-respected “Survivor” forum literally called “Survivor Sucks”:
So basically, Cliff Robinson’s Twitter inactivity and following list leads people to believe that Cliff Robinson is going to be on “Survivor.” And really, that’s kind of good enough for me and obviously good enough for the Survivor Sucks people, who are treating this as a lock. I won’t believe it until I see it, but “Survivor” has been known to throw an athlete or famous person on there and the tea leaves certainly point towards Uncle Cliffy being a special guest who will be voted out early because he is 6-foot-10 and your classic “physical threat.”
Personally, I hope it’s true. Not only is “Survivor” the greatest, Cliff Robinson is one of the first non-Bulls I ever really cared about and kind of the reason I started wearing a headband back in high school. I don’t know how he’d ever keep his identity secret on the show — which would probably get him voted off instantly since it’d be common knowledge that he made a ton of money while playing — but I really hope he’s on it and that he brings one of those headbands as a luxury item. Even on “Survivor,” a Clifford Robinson without a headband isn’t really a Clifford Robinson at all.
