Papa John’s founder and CEO John Schnatter got completely shitfaced, at least, from what I can gather from this picture, after the Louisville Cardinals won the NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Monday night in Atlanta. Although he’s an alumnus of Ball State University and a brother of Alpha Tau Omega, Papa John is still a big Louisville booster, buying the naming rights to Louisville’s football stadium, giving Big East, soon to be ACC, football another feather in their cap by having a football stadium named after mediocre pizza. At least they give you complimentary garlic sauce, that’s a bold flavor move I can respect, PJ.
There’s probably going to be false outrage from the media and other bullshit like that, but I say let the guy get shitfaced. He’s a big enough fan to pay a cool five million bucks to name the Cardinals’ football stadium after his pizza restaurant chain. If I was in his shoes, I’d probably be passed out or running through the streets completely naked, i.e. nowhere near his level of coherency. Hell, I’d be like that if my school won regardless of what I had donated or my current stature. So go ahead, Mr. Schnatter. Celebrate your ass off. God knows he probably had enough pizza at his disposal to vanquish his hangover on Tuesday morning.
Nobody drinks like Papa John drinks.
