Continuing in a long line (read: now two) of local athletes asking for things on Twitter, Jeremy Maclin used his social standing to score a few freebies.
In September, Mike Stutes took to the Tweets to land himself a free Range Rover. As you know, they don’t just give those things away, but the folks at Land Rover Main Line were happy to help, and we chronicled the encounter. Maclin, understanding the power of the pseudo-celeb Twitter account, wanted to get in on the action. So what did he request: A car? A Home? Ice? Tickets? Sex?!?
Nope– doughnuts. He requested doughnuts.
Let’s break it down:
Translation: I’m hungry and want to feed a bunch of equally famished athletes. Surely I don’t have to pay for this.
Translation: Here, let me Google that for you.
Translation: There’s a break in my logic. There’s a KK near me, but for some reason I am now doubting your willingness to assist. I play football.
Translation: J-Mac, the markup on these things is INSANE. We could give you, the team, Andy and Reuben Frank (their own box), the Occupy NovaCare guys, Chris Christie, and El Wingador a total of 70 boxes and still churn a profit for the day. Happy to help, maybe a blogger will pick up this– looking at you, CB.
Translation: Hmm. Nm. Gettn’ my grind on tomorrow. How about Wednesday? We have a long flight that day.
A day goes by…
Translation: Oh, yeah, yeah yeah.. I forgot. Hook your boy up.
7 AM this morning…
Translation: If Jim gives you ANY guff, you tell him you spoke to me, the Twitter guy. And hey, before you go, will you sign stuff for us to give away? We did just give you free doughnuts…
90 minutes later…
Transaction complete. Going to be a happy flight for the Eagles.
