I saw this bottle last night at a quarterly D CEO function and swore it was filled with vodka. I lost a $10 bet when someone asked the bartender about the enormous vessel, which, it turns out, is filled with oil and water. Apparently, I’m not the only one who has been fooled. Someone told a source of mine that a big-time Dallas professional athlete once absconded with this bottle and attempted to drink from it, only to be sickened by its contents. So, my question: Which athlete would have pulled such a stunt? Bonus points if someone has photographic evidence. Comments are on.

    Wow, I’m considered a big-time professional athlete? Awesome.

    Well the bottle is in one piece and not being used as a weapon over someone’s head. So it is not Pacman Jones.

    And I don’t see Dion Phaneuf using the bottle right now. So it is not Sean Avery.

    Let’s see. It is a pretty bottle. Nice to look at and admire, but not filled with anything really useful. Looks like something Tony Romo might enjoy…

    Revised answer: Michael Irvin took it but only because he confiscated it from a friend that he was worried about.

    Trick question. It wasn’t a professional athlete, but rather a coach. Specifically, THE coach. Tom Landry.

    It’s what causes him to spew his crass “sloppy seconds” comments
