Starring as basketball player Jesus Shuttlesworth in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game” in ’98, Ray Allen is still referred to as “Jesus” by his Heat teammates when he gets hot on the basketball court, but Chris Bosh refers to him as something else. The notorious photo/videobomber calls Allen by his birth name, Walter. Unbeknown to most, Ray is actually the middle of Walter Allen...
Whiskey Tango tried this before in 2011 and it didn’t work out too well. This time they have a little bit smarter promotion.
The Heat are on an 18 game winning streak and there aren’t a lot of games in the regular season, so this is a more reasonable way to give out free drinks and get some free press.
Here are the details.
The next time the Miami Heat loses a game, we will pay...

Ok, world. I think we’ve all had enough of Harlem Shake. Right? I know I have. Enough ‘Div. III Bumblef#ck Tech does Harlem Shake.’ Enough ‘Dementia riddled geriatrics do Harlem Shake.’ Just enough!
And then what happens? Professional sports teams getting involved in this nonsense. Come on, folks. So, the Miami Heat threw their hat in this annoying ring last week. Thankfully...
