Drunkass Dispatch of the Day: Drunk-Dialing Fail
Drunk-dialing is a college kid’s rite to passage. Calling the opposite sex at 3am is how most of us were taught a night’s supposed to end. Even as a post-grad, we find ourselves calling exes and friends to remind them that we haven’t lost it just yet. But the drunk-dial outgoing Orlando Magic CEO Bob Vander Weide “allegedly” made was a bit, how do we say this…? Fucking dumb as hell.
Following “a couple of glasses of wine,” Vander Weide decided it was the best time to call his All-Star Center Dwight Howard; who just so happens to be a involved in some major trade talks, and can openly turn his back on the only team he’s ever known after the season. Great way to convince the dude that the people in charge know what the hell they’re doing.
Not since Dan Gilbert’s (extremely warranted) open letter, bashing LeBron last year has a NBA Exec made such a move.
For popping bottles in the ice, and getting slizzard, us non-Orlando Magic fans raise a big cheers to you Mr. Vander Weide. May you enjoy lots of booze in your retirement.
