Oh, the things he would do.
He would wear a ridiculous golden pair of Adidas running shoes, take a bite of items from the McDonald’s menu and, finally, drink a Bud Light Lime, a beverage he described as: “a puddle beneath a Long John Silver’s dumpster.”
Blatter, after all, was “the Swiss demon” who had “ruined” the sport he loved.
