How The Cavs Lavishly Celebrated Their First Championship Victory

For the seven people in the world that might not know, the Cleveland Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit in the championship series against last year’s victors, the Golden State Warriors. After winning three games in a row to beat the Warriors 4-3, the Cavaliers knew they were about to party their freaking faces off, especially since this is the first NBA championship ever to be won in Cleveland.

The team decided to stop off in Vegas on the way home for their celebrations, and boy were they glad they did. The popular Vegas club XS (located at the Wynn) was hosting them and had the entire club prepped and prepared for their arrival.

The team walked into the club and that’s when shit started getting cray.

Kevin Love definitely got his party on with his teammates when he got to XS, although he had no problem getting it started early in the locker room.

The fun doesn’t stop there. Even before the team headed out to Vegas to really get their party on, they all began popping bottles and splashing each other as soon as they got to the locker room.

When they got to Vegas, the staff at the Wynn made sure to pull out all the stops for the champs. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the team was presented with 350 bottles of Moet & Chandon Nectar Rosé that were emblazoned with the team’s logo, along with Moet & Chandon paying homage to the state of Ohio with a specialized crest.

Each bottle has a crystallized version of the Cavs logo stamped on the front. The retail price of the entire order comes out to $21,000, although XS was/is selling them for $5,000 a bottle. Basically, if all 350 bottles were sold already, the club will be making $1.75 million.

Looks like the employees at the Wynn Hotel are the real winners here.

Belgium’s “Drunk Fishing Championship” Is The Best (And Funniest) Event EVER

I don’t know why nobody told me about this earlier, because I’ve been doing it my whole life and nobody has ever given me a gosh dang trophy, just tickets, fines and lectures.

“The trick *hiccup* is to use bive lait *hiccup*”

In the small and all but forgotten country of Belgium, there is a crossover sporting event called the “Drunk Fishing Championship,” in which contestants (presumably) try to get as drunk as possible and catch the biggest fish.

Although the video is depressingly short, the message is quite clear. And here I’ve been drinking on my couch and in bars and not in fishing competitions, like an IDIOT.

Despite how awesome and amazing and Andy-heavy that video is, there are still many questions that were raised and never answered, as if I was watching LOST. How are the contestants scored? Is there some sort of scale that averages your drinks and your catches? Where can I get my own Andy? I need him…

From what I can gather, the winner is chosen by some sort of combination between drunkenness and number and/or size of the fish captured. While most men seem to be finding a balance between the two, Andy the Amazing decided to lean more towards the drinking part.

And then, of course, he simply decided to lean more towards the lake altogether.
