You may wonder why an Oakland Raider's prediliction for expensive Cognac is relevant to this blog aside from trying to snarf some traffic from the Black Hole. Well, as Yokota Fritz would say, "We already know this, I think, but now research shows that "experiential" gifts are more satisfying than material gifts." I'm guessing that Louis XIII Cognac is quite the experience. And hopefully Higgins planned to recycle the bottles. Or better yet, reuse them as decorative flower holders.
Anyway, turns out that maybe the Cognac was a bit overboard.
Three Raiders rookies came in to return Johnnie Lee Higgins bottles of cognac. Johnnie has taste....especially when someone else was paying. These rookies probably see some of the writing on the wall for a three-win team.
Coming up with the $4200 cash at noon was impossible as we deposit cash to the bank every night via the armored truck. We asked them to comeback at night and fortunately when they did they dropped $1,000 on three bottles of Ace of Spades champagne. Still had to come up with $3,000 for them.
Kind of crushed our gross margin for the day.
Wonder if Lance has to buy Cognac for Contador?
