If you read my previous post, you know that I was in Vegas this weekend for our New York writer’s bachelor’s party. We went to see DJ Pauly D (of Jersey Shore fame) perform at Vanity, and he was exactly what you would expect… even yelling “cabs are heeeere” as he closed out his set. We did not expect a surprise performance by Three 6 Mafia, but there was an even bigger sports-related surprise on tap – our table was next to the Detroit Lions and Jahvid Best’s birthday party.
I never thought I’d say it, but Tom Brady is no longer my favorite player in the NFL. It has nothing to do with his Super Bowl loss this year and everything to do with my time spent with Jahvid Best. Despite being concussed for much of the season, the guy was out in Vegas having a blast. He clearly paid the way for his entire posse, almost all of whom were awesome, and I must admit that the man has some serious moves. Better yet, as entertaining as the Lions were to us, apparently we were just as amusing to them. As Jahvid put it, “Ya’ll some crazy ass white boys.”
I’m hereby predicting 1,100 rushing yards and 10 TDs for Mr. Best next season – think of how good that would make the Lions? And having seen that stutter-step in person, he’s going to be one very difficult man to tackle.
