It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Professional athletes make a ton of money. Too much money. Yet they’re also often the beneficiary of pretty nice handouts. Shane Battier of the Miami Heat recently disclosed one of his rituals of drinking a Bud Light prior to games.
So, of course, Bud Light sent a delivery truck to Battier’s house with 1,100 cases of beer for him. For free (minus taxes). My math tells me that Battier was given 26,400 cans of Bud Light. For free (minus taxes). ESPN’s Darren Rovell tweeted that the delivery will actually cost Battier $5,000 to Uncle Sam.
That’s an $18,000 value for $5,000. It’s also one heck of a lot of beer.
Head nod to Rovell

Bud Light sucks. Duke basketball is the worst. These are 2 facts I have known since the late 80’s. I haven’t had a Bud Light in at least 4,771 days, and I have known Duke hoops was the worst since Bush 1 was in the White House.

Miami Heat role player Shane Battier has only one superstition following games: to drink a Bud Light. So Anheuser Busch decided to stock up his fridge with plenty of his favorite beer.

Miami Heat forward Shane Battier admitted to drinking Bud Light before every game as his only superstition during the win streak. To “reward” Shane Battier for his loyalty, Bud Light decided to deliver 1,100 cases of beer to his house. How they decided on 1,100 cases I’m not sure, but it seems pretty excessive. There is a zero percent chance that he drinks all of those...

I've never been jealous of Shane Battier till I saw this clip. Before hand I thought he was a decent talent in the NBA; nothing special. The dude was kind of funny looking (it's my opinion I'm aloud). There just wasn't anything (except his paycheck) to be envious (or jealous) of.
Until now. Apparently when you talk about drinking a Bud Lite before every game...
