See that bottle? No, not the little one. That’s a regular sized bottle, I’m talking about the BIG one. That’s the bottle that Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, bought at a Miami bar to celebrate his team knocking out the over-hyped Miami Heat and winning an NBA Championship last Sunday night. It is a 20 Liter bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades Champagne produced in France. They call it “The Midas” size since it was inspired by King Midas from Greek mytholgy. It weighs about 100 pounds. Oh, and it cost $90,000. For one bottle. And dude left a nice $20,000 tip for the waiters and waitresses that were working there that night.
Add to that the fact that he’s gonna foot the bill for the victory parade that they’re going to hold in Dallas soon, so the taxpayers don’t have to bitch and moan about paying for it. Love the guy, or hate him, you gotta respect him for cashing out his dot com business right before the big bubble burst in 2000 and pocketing $2.5 billion at the age of 40. Then he goes and lives the dream by buying a sports team to focus his energy and his money on. And he still looks like every douchebag you played against in the beer league softball game:
So, Dodger fans, how’d you like that guy to be your new owner?
