We've had a few protests over our upcoming hiatus from the athlete run-in stories. We're flattered that you like them so much, and we promise they will be back after the new year. We just don't want to rely on them, that's all. We're still taking your great ones at firstname.lastname@example.org. So send 'em on over.
Today's last one is about everybody's favorite Spur — he's on the Spurs now, apparently — Nick Van Exel.
A few years back when I was living in Denver, I was at the local neighborhood liquor store grabbing a few beers to watch football. I was walking down towards the check out line when I noticed a guy with a cart full of Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Corona, and ton of florescent green bottles of what looked like some type of wine cooler. I started walking towards him, and he — Nick Van Exel — turned around with a huge grin on his face and looked at me looking at the green bottles. He said, "You need some of this...dis is the shit that makes all the girls horny!" I laughed and kept on walking.
Yeah, thanks, man ... but what was in the green bottles?
