Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover the NBA Draft, the new Eddie Van Halen interview and the elusive Bloody Mary hole-in-one. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is Eddie Van Halen the biggest dick in rock and roll?
I’m assuming this is based on Eddie’s latest Billboard magazine interview. Van Halen is dickish, but he’s also an artist so there is a lot of leeway here. Also, this is nothing new and it’s been a long time since I listened to anything Eddie had to say. Back in 1984 when he parted ways with David Lee Roth, the reason he gave was because Roth wanted to create pop music instead of rock. Well, Eddie’s next two albums were 5150 and OU812, two of the “lightest” albums in the VH catalog. Meanwhile, Roth unleashed Eat’em and Smile, a much heavier collection that still holds up surprisingly well. I think the real question is if no one listens to what you say are you still a dick?
Last week I was chipping golf balls in my back yard and one landed directly in my drink. It was a Bloody Mary. Should I count this as a hole-in-one?
It’s definitely not an official hole-in-one, but is still worthy of a fist pump. I do think this is a sing though, a sign you should be drinking Bloody Mary’s the next time you hit the links.
What’s the craziest suit color suit someone could wear to the NBA draft? Can Jalen Rose and his red suit pinstripe suit ever be beat?
Rose set the bar very high back in 1994, so high that to this day I don’t believe it has been topped. I think if someone came buttoned up in a Cat In The Hat suit, complete with bow tie and top hat that would be pretty kick ass and would put Rose on notice.
Dallas Cowboys…are you buying or selling on these guys?
I sold on the Cowboys years ago and they still have essentially the same team (different guys, except for Tony Romo, but still pretty much the same). Anytime you have an old decrepit owner that openly still bangs young girls you deserve to be miserable. I can’t wait for Jerry Jones to pay Jimmy Johnson 40 million dollars to try and save his team. That will be the equivalent of 2 million lap dances out the window.
