We Hope Jeter Enjoys His Drinks Straight Up


Even with the All-Star game last night the sports scene was rather dull. When this happens you get posts like these.

Back when we were still idealistic bloggers, posting at an unbelievable average of three posts/day, all four of us made a trip into NYC for the weekend to visit two buddies, known around here as Brittlebones and D-FENS, who were interning there for the summer. Pat wrote a short recap of the weekend last year, wherein he apologizes for not having any weekend posts. Clearly, our standards have dipped a bit.

Our two friends were employed in the financial district, working hellish hours but being compensated fairly well. When the trip was planned, rumors began circulating that they had decided to rent a table at a club called Marquee. To give you an idea of the generosity of this endeavor, a table at Marquee is roughly equivalent to a couple thousand Jagerbombs from Barry's on a Friday night.

The night started with Pat trying to pick a fight with a number of ivy league douchebags (Yes, even more douchey than a guy writing about a club in NYC and jagerbombs). It was a solid pregame. Once we arrived at the club we proceeded to do what any bloggers would do at a fancy club; look like we had no idea what the hell we were doing and get drunk.

Nearing the end of the night, I Want to Fight Tom Brady, when he was still known as Pirate in Search of Nuttings Chest, wasn't feeling too well and proceeded to throw up into the ice bucket. About 5 minutes later, rejuvenated from releasing those vile, expensive toxins from his body, he decided to make another mixed drink. He grabbed the ice bucket and began placing the puke-covered ice into the glass. Before he could finish making his drink, one of us realized the potentially life-altering event that was unfolding before us and stayed his hand before the true damage could be done.

I thought the story was over. Then I read this report from SPORTSbyBROOKS via Deadspin about a Jeter-Jordan joint party at Marquee that occurred earlier this week. Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan likely dropped hundreds of thousands of dollars each to rent out one of New York's finest clubs, complete with open bar.

Micheal Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all-time. Derek Jeter is a legend on the most fabled baseball team in history. Yet, with all this talent and money, they could very well have made drinks with IWtFTB's puke bucket. Who says bloggers can't make a splash in the sports world?

Considering the lack of sports news, well done. I enjoy drunken stories, especially ones with famous people.

Wow. After laughing for a solid five minutes, I dont even know where to start. I totally forgot about trying to fight those pricks. As soon as I saw the picture of the ice bucket, I knew exactly what this post was going to be about and I thought: what a perfect non-sports story for the all-star game.

If you want to get it more semi-sports related, you can talk about how stache was 100% sure he was hanging out with Richard Jefferson.

The Richard Jefferson story is quite simple...

When you're drunk, you kind of assume that all tall black guys are athletes of some sort.

slight problem stache: the guy was about 5'9''

cranberry vodka anyone?

Why Pitt football has sucked for so long finally makes sense.
