Between declaring that his players will bite a knee cap off and wanting a pet lion be present during team practices, the Detroit Lions’ head coach Dan Campbell has been a lightning rod for eyebrow-raising quotes this past year. However, him recently sharing his daily order at Starbucks might give us some insight on why he’s wired to say such outlandish things. Key word, wired.
“I’ll get two Venti, of the Pike, with two shots in it. That’s what I come in with, that’s how I start my day.”
While a Venti is only 20-ounces, instead of the 40 claimed in the Tweet above, an added total of 12-ounces of espresso shots makes for 52-ounces of jet fuel coursing through this man’s veins. That might explain the whole pet lion thing and his appetite for kneecaps.
Will this heart-stopping order become the next Starbucks craze? They could very well capitalize on it, call it The Lion Tamer or something.
But then again, the coffee chain could likely catch a case once that dark roast gasoline catches a body.
