Larry English Gets Stuck With Gigantic Dinner Bill Courtesy of New Teammates
In Larry English's scenario, the final dinner tab was pretty eye-popping.
English, the 16th overall NFL draft pick, had to pay nearly $15,000 when every Charger was through pigging out. Fellow linebacker Shaun Phillips posted a picture of the check on his Twitter account late Monday night so we all could get a good laugh at English's expense. The burning question is who the heck ordered raspberry sorbet. My guess is head coach Norval Turner, because with a name like Norval, how can you not be a sorbet fan? Or even tapioca pudding.
Of course, with English guaranteed $9.9 million in his five-year contract, $15K doesn't seem like all that big of a dent to his wallet.
As MJD pointed out over at Shutdown Corner, it's certainly not the first time a San Diego player forked over a huge wad of cash at the dinner table. Shawne Merriman's rookie dinner reportedly cost him $32,000, and NFL draft bust Ryan Leaf had his credit card swiped by Junior Seau to pay for a dinner that was $3,000.
