Remember how Randy Moss went into a rant worthy of Jerry Springer during a catered affair for the Vikings? Well, Tinnuci’s, the deli that catered that luncheon, fought back. During a special deal last Friday, the first 50 people to show up and hand over a Randy Moss jersey received a free lunch. What was the lunch, you ask? It was the same spread that Randy Moss wouldn’t feed to his $%@!^ dogs. Those who didn’t show up in time could still purchase the lunch for the specialty price of $8.40 (you know, like Moss’ #84). A local ESPN 1500 station covered the event live from the restaurant.
Former Moss fan Brent Brommer, who showed up shortly before noon with a jersey, summed up Minnesota’s feelings quite succinctly:
“Moss’ behavior is pretty much inexcusable. I have a word for it. I call him a jerk-o-holic.”
While chatting with radio hosts Pat Reusse and Phil Mackey, restaurant co-owner Gus Tinnuci added,
“We’re having fun. He was wrong; we were just doing our job. It could have been a lobster buffet and he would have said the same thing.”
In honor of the Titans, all Jerseys collected will be donated to the Boys and Girls club of Nashville, TN.
Oh, and you can also order your very own “No Moss!” shirt from the deli today.
