Kings’ Robert Woodard caught on video eating a cheesesteak like a weirdo, Haliburton and the city of Philadelphia disapproves
On Thursday, the Sacramento Kings arrived in Philadelphia ahead of last night’s game against the 76ers. The Kings social team then went ahead and posted a bunch of pictures of the team eating cheesesteaks at Pats in South Philly, sparking another dumb debate about the best cheesesteak joint in Philly.
Look, I get it. It’s pretty lame of me to say that the cheesesteak debate is dumb, while also writing another article about cheesesteaks and the proper way to eat them, but its the end of January and content is crawling, so I’m just doing my part in keeping things moving here at The Liberty Line.
Back to the cheesesteaks.
The Sacramento Kings posted a video on Instagram showing Robert Woodard eating a cheesesteak like a total idiot. It was bad enough they ended up at Pats in the first place, let alone videos surfacing of eating the cheesesteak sideways.
Here’s the video:
The Kings posted the video and asked if Woodard was a hero or villain for eating a cheesesteak like that. The problem is, the Kings themselves are the actual villains for posting the video in the first place. No shot in hell Woodard is a hero for eating the cheesesteak like that. As any person who has ever eaten a cheesesteak or even a hoagie, his reasoning doesn’t even make sense.
Of course, Tyrese Haliburton thought it was ridiculous as well. Haliburton is a stud and put on quite the show the following night in the Kings 103-101 loss to the 76ers. The 21-year old torched the 76ers for 38 points, three rebounds, seven assists, and only two turnovers. Hali was 11-for-19 from the field and 5-for-9 from three point range. He was 11-for-12 from the free throw line.
Less than two weeks ago, the Kings were “pondering” the idea of acquiring both Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris from the Sixers. The thought that there was actually a chance for the Sixers to land Buddy Hield, Tyrese Haliburton, and Harrison Barnes in a trade package and that didn’t happen is painful.
Anyways, you can have your debates on where to get a cheesesteak and make fun of other cities who make “Philly Cheesesteaks.” I get it. Totally fine. Some people protect Philly’s food scene more than I do.
However, one thing I think everyone can unanimously agree upon, is that eating a cheesesteak like that is absolutely ridiculous and Tyrese Haliburton should be in a 76ers uniform tomorrow.
