One day on lunch with a co-worker/friend at Qdoba, I happened to look up at the tv screen to see Amare Stoudemire in what I thought was a bathtub full of blood so I almost threw up. I’m like, oh Lord, Amare done went to the dark side and joined some type of vampire cult until I read at the bottom of the screen that it was actually red wine. I still almost threw up. Not because I don’t like red wine but because of the thought of someone wasting all that red goodness to put their sweaty behind in it and not drink it nauseated me. Why would a sane person waste their money on a red wine bath?? Oh, I’m sorry, “they” call it vinotherapy. That’s not even a real world in the Webster’s Dictionary yet. LOL
Remember that ESPN 30 for 30 special Broke? Amare is going to be on the second version if he keeps spending money frivolously like this.
Here is an excerpt from the article by By Ohm Youngmisuk | ESPNNewYork.comf (link below) on vinotherapy…
“Grape polyphenols fight against free radicals, which cause 80 percent of skin aging. … In addition to their exceptional antioxidant power, polyphenols reinforce microcirculation, protect elastin and collagen fibers and prevent the destruction of the fundamental elements of the skin’s support tissues.”
My translation: Wine baths are the modern day fountain of youth and give you better skin apparently (in my J.Cole voice).
How much will a wine bath run you, might you ask? If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. No, I couldn’t find the price of the one Amare had at the Plaza Hotel in New York but I’m sure it’s not cheap because I’m almost certain they’re not going to use Arbor Mist. LMAO
Next thing you know it will be the “it” thing to take baths in gentleman’s jack if you wanna become more of a thug, Moscato if you want to be a little bit more sensitive to others, or Wild Irish Rose if you wanna learn how to turn up on people when needed. I mean, really, what next athletes??????
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this story.
