Dezzie's $55,000 Dinner



    You remember the flap in training camp over Roy William's shoulder pads right?   Where rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant refused to carry them off the field, effectively sparking a media firestorm about rookie hazing and Bryant's turning his nose up at a veteran.

    You only thought that story died after the second preseason game when Bryant bought each member of the WR corps a pair of brand-spanking-new Jordans as an attempt to make good on his err in judgement, when in all honesty a solid pair of Chuck T's would have been sufficent.

    But alas, the issue wasn't dead ... it was just hibernating.

    "When we go out to eat, I’m going to be a little bit more hungry and a little bit more thirsty ... I might take my 10 family members out to eat when we go out to eat. We’re going to find a way," Williams said in the summer, of getting even with the rookie.

    Williams, recently made good on that promise.  Though, he wasn't the only one who was hungry.  The entire team joined them in running up a $54,896 bill at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, according to

    You read that right. The bill was $55,000.  For dinner.  How do you even pay for that?  And I don't mean how does he afford it, but how do you pay for it?  Did he use six credit cards?  Certainly he isn't carring 55 large around with him in his pockets.  That must be one nice, open-ended AmEx, Dezzie.

    ESPN's Calvin Watkins said the players basically ordered everything on the menu and might have even included a few bottles of wine ranging from the $9,000 bottle of Chateau Latour to the $600 bottle of Plumpjack Reserve.

    That's quite a comeuppance.

    "They got the young fella," Bryant's adviser, David Wells, told ESPN. "What could he say? He had to pay it unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month."

    So far, there has been no word on the dinner from Bryant or Williams.

    Oh, and Wells ... how much do you think a dishwasher makes a year? I guarantee it's not $660,000, but if you can get it for me, you can definitely be my agent any day.
