Thinking outside the bun

Gazette staff February 29th, 2012

Last week, CFN was excited to receive a news release announcing, per the headline, “RUSSELL WESTBROOK TO COMPETE IN 2012 TACO BELL SKILLS CHALLENGE.”

Hell, yeah! Who wouldn’t want to see the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard show off his mad Taco Bell skills? We looked forward to drooling in anticipation of watching him participating in the following: —Chalupa preparation, a timed event; —guess the Gordita, blindfolded; and —Crunchwrap Supreme toss, a distance competition.

Turns out none of those took place.

Instead, the Taco Bell Skills Challenge was — sigh — merely a fast-food-branded basketball challenge during the NBA All-Star weekend.

We hang our 7-Layer Burrito in shame.
