Stumptown is the new Vegas
Posted on November 8th, 2010
More strip clubs per capita than anywhere else in the US? Here? Who knew?
Apparently the Daily Mail. Some Manchester United player named Wayne Rooney is over here getting schooled by Nike about how not to cheat on his wife, at least not publicly (“training”), and the Daily Mail wrote a story on how he’s going everywhere with a bodyguard/minder/trainer.
There is just so much wrong with this story. Where do you start?
- Mr. Rooney with minder: that’s just funny. Clearly it’s not for the mobs of fans. The only way this guy is going to be in any trouble is if he cuts in line at Starbucks or stiffarms a bicyclist with right-of-way. Then, buddy, the gloves are off.
- Portland is generally thought of for beer, rain, beer, biking, rain, public transit, rain, and beer. Strip clubs, not so much.
- Technically, good old Nike isn’t in Beaverton. They’re in unincorporated Washington County, so that they don’t have to pay as much tax as a business in Beaverton. I think the Beaverton reference was gratuitous, because who doesn’t like to say Beaverton in a story hinting about why this guy needs a minder?
- I had to make up a WTF category to post this.
