Green Bay Packers Rookies Pranked With A $33,000 Dinner Tab

As the NFL season beings, team veterans will usually find some humiliating way to haze incoming rookies. Well, you can say the Green Bay Packers rookies got their money’s worth, after a photo of a $33,000 dinner bill surfaced over the weekend.

Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari posted a photo to his Twitter account, with the caption, “What a dinner, I’m stuffed. Thanks #Rooks,” thanking his new teammates for the lavish dinner.

With that said, after looking at the 51-item bill, it’s easy to see how a few hungry pro-football players could rack up such an expensive tab. Some notable standouts include seven bottles of Lafite Rothschild 10 ($2,700 each), 12 glasses of  Macallan 25 Years Old Whisky ($215 each), and one bottle of Harlan Estate Napa Valley California Cabernet Sauvignon ($1,445 each).

After posting the photo, Bakhtiari’s Twitter blew up with comments and retweets, with Twitter users calling it shameful and, “absolutely ridiculous,” arguing that the bill was too expensive to showcase on social media.

Capital Grille even managed to send in a thank you tweet.

However, the internet couldn’t handle the cost of this high-class meal. Thankfully, Packer’s veteran quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was able to quell the agitation of the masses. To calm everyone’s nerves, Rodgers tweeted that the bill was fake, and was just part of an elaborate prank on Green Bay Packer rookies.

Thanks to a tweet from Jason Wilde, ESPNWisconsin’s Packers reporter, we learned that Bakhtiari was just getting even. In 2013, Rodgers pranked him into thinking he owed $11,000 for a dinner during the offensive tackle’s rookie season.

Although, it’s still unclear who actually paid for the bill or if the photo was even a REAL receipt.

Even if the Packers spent an entry level salary on dinner, between Rodgers’ $22 million a year and Bakhtiari’s $16 million from last season, it’s safe to say someone was able to take care of the damage.

Now that we all know it was a prank, we can go back to buying overpriced food inside most NFL stadiums.

Frat Boys Rub Peanut Butter On Allergic Pledge’s Face, Nearly Kill Him

Hazing in fraternities is a common rite of passage, but they might need to start using some restaurant-like policies and ask pledges if they have deadly allergies.

Alpha Chi Rho Fraternity of Central Michigan University nearly killed a pledge with a peanut allergy after rubbing peanut butter all over his face, according to NBC 5. The pledge was eventually taken to CMU’s campus health clinic by a professor, and was treated.

The pledge’s mother, Teresa Seely, posted photos of her son, showing his face as disturbingly bloated, and disfigured. She said in the post:

“Last night, we found out that our son was a victim of a hazing incident at Alpha Chi Rho Fraternity at Central Michigan University in the fall.

This is a picture of what they did to him. He has a deadly peanut allergy and they rubbed peanut butter on his face while he was passed out. He could have been killed. He was sent to the campus health clinic by a professor and treated. Luckily he is still alive.

Our family is devastated. Here are some of the steps we have taken so far: Notified the campus police. Notified Central Michigan University. Notified the Local News Agencies.”

The incident reportedly happened during the 2016 fall semester, and one of the students involved actually spoke about it, saying, “It was just a joke. We used peanut butter and put it on his face. We didn’t know he was allergic.”

The frat also reportedly offered to pay for the medical bills, as they were sorry the whole thing happened.

The off-campus fraternity is unrecognized by CMU, being closed in 2011 due to hazing incidents.

Director of Communications at CMU, Heather Smith, told NBC 5 that they responded immediately. The investigation is ongoing, but the students could be expelled, or even face legal trouble.

Thankfully, the victim is alive, and while he transferred from CMU, it was allegedly because he got a tennis scholarship, not because this frat messed him up.
