What the hell is wrong with these guys?! Orrrrrrrr are they just smart??? I could never do this because I would want the cow as a pet. Lol.
Lakers Big Men Robert Sacre & Chris Kaman bought a cow together and guess what they plan on doing with it?! Isn’t there an easier way?!
Details after the jump…
According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, the pair — along with Lakers strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco — recently pooled their money to purchase a cow, solely in an effort to stockpile hundreds of pounds of beef. McMenamin, thankfully, explains:
This isn’t like Billy Crystal’s pet cow Norman in “City Slickers.” The three of them are going in together on a full cow’s worth of beef after it’s been to the butcher, or approximately 400 pounds of cuts of meat for their freezers.
DiFrancesco, who has picked up the nickname “Grass-Fed Tim” around the team because of his belief in the health benefits of eating grass-fed beef, came up with the idea after connecting with a farm that raises grass-fed cows down in San Diego.
Kaman is getting half, 200 pounds, while Sacre and DiFrancesco are getting a quarter, 100 pounds, each. It was originally supposed to be a four-way split, but longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti backed out.
“Gary Vitti ran out of freezer space, so I think he’s out,” Kaman said. “So, I got to pick up the slack. I’m happy to, though.”
Freezer space was an issue for Sacre, too, so he did something about it.
“I had to go to a Best Buy to go buy me a 15 cubic foot freezer,” said Sacre, who estimated that the freezer and the beef will end up costing him about $1,300 combined. “It’s, uh, it’s intense.”
