I forgot two of the best stories from the major San Antonio post.
First, Jared from Subway was the part of the halftime entertainment at the Bulls-Spurs game.
He shilled a bit and then helped out by providing two pairs of his old (ridiculously large) pants so that two teams of two guys could compete to see who could fling more foam balls backwards over their heads with lacrosse sticks and catch them with the pants.
As Dave Barry would say, I am not making this up.
He was a major celebrity. Cooper also posted this link to a transcript of a chat with him…It’s kind of funny how this guy’s diet has just taken over his entire life and existence, but he seems to really be enjoying it, so more power to him.
And slightly related, the Coyote mascot of the Spurs made a backwards, half-court shot in full costume. You’ll probably see it on highlight reels for years to come. It was pretty cool.
The other fun story was the conversation we heard between a father and his approximately 7 year old son while we were at the caverns:
Father: (to no one in particular) Man, you could not be down here if you were claustrophobic.
Son: What’s claustrophobic?
Father: Well, it means you’re afraid of tight spaces or closed spaces.
Son: Oh, you mean like that lady on Fear Factor?
Mark and I had to try very, very hard not to burst out laughing, although both of us could not help but let out a little snicker.
