Below is a live look at my reaction to Bakhtiari’s celebration plans.
I might hate the Packers, but I 100% love this plan. You know how you celebrate becoming the highest paid lineman in league history?
You start cracking cold ones and you don’t stop until you’ve run completely dry. The good news for Bakhtiari is that we also know he can slam them.
The dude is a documented chugger!
If you have a problem with Bakhtiari slamming cold brews to celebrate getting paid, then the problem is with you.
It’s that simple. You’ll never see me knock a guy for grabbing an ice cold drink to celebrate a major accomplishment.
That’s what America is all about!
