If this were LeBron James’ blog, he’d title this post “The “Wing-cision.” (Cough, Cough). This is tough, but on December 20th I’ll be eating my 2,011th wing at Lansdowne Road Sports Bar in New York City. Press release below.
After getting my butt kicked during a personal training session at my gym, I came home and found out that Derek Jeter reached the 3,000 hits milestone. When I heard this news, I knew it was time for me to tackle my meaty milestone.
I sent a text message to my buddy Pete and told him the milestone was happening today. The only question was where? After thinking it over for a bit, we decided to meet in one hour at Bonnie’s Grill in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
500 isn’t an unfamiliar number to me. For my high school baseball team, I batted .500 as a junior and .522 as a senior, earning myself the nickname Mr. 500. Nine years later, on March 26, 2011, I found myself dancing with the number 500 again… only this time I’d traded in my baseball bat for a drumstick. It was time for me, The Ultimate Wingman, to eat wing #500.
