AND NOW FOR THE A*HEEL OF THE WEEK
Wide Receiver Randy Moss needs to eat a big fat piece of humble pie. He is my a*heel of the week. Who does he think he is?! You would think somebody who didn’t come from a lot, and parlayed his athletic abilities to become an NFL player that makes millions of dollars would remember his roots. But the comments he made about the food that was catered to he and his team, by Gus Tinucci, the proprietor of Tinnuci’s Restaurant and Cateringwas just unacceptable.
Said Tunucci: “We had the whole buffet set up, and we had a nice spread–chicken,ribs, round of beef with a carving station, the whole deal. (Moss) he comes in, and I’m helping one of the guys and didn’t look up, and all of a sudden I heard, ‘What the (expletive) is this? I wouldn’t feed this (expletive expletive) to my (expletive) dog!’ And he’s screaming it at the top of his lungs. “He never even came through the line. He walked up towards it, looked at it, made the big stink and walked away. He didn’t eat.
I really hope that Moss makes a public apology for his childish behavior and especially to Mr. Tinucci. And until he does then he will hold the title of being a complete A*heel.
