Lebron James Invites Olympic Swimmer To Dinner At The Dining Hall
SMH. Your boy Bron Bron was trying to sneak in a swirl date while in London for the Olympics!
Lauren Perdue is one of the United States’ top swimmers, and on Wednesday she swam the first leg of the 4×200 women’s freestyle relay. That’s nice and all, and she’ll likely take home some hardware, but her primary notoriety is coming from a couple of tweets she sent out last week.
Just before the Games began, she tweeted, “Lebron James just invited me to dinner…Um wuuuutttt?!?” Around that time, the photo at right showed up on Perdue’s Instagram account. That is most definitely LeBron, trendy dork glasses and all.
On Wednesday, just after her relay, she gave the full scoop to the Charlotte Observer. Before the Games began, the “Dream Team” hung with the swimmers in a kind of Avengers-meets-Justice-League American hero summit. In the course of that, LeBron did indeed invite Perdue to dinner.
“He was kind of joking,” Perdue said. “But he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?’ And I said, ‘Um, I’m sorry, I have a curfew.’”
Hey, to be fair, LeBron never went to college, so perhaps to him the “dining hall” is this mystical, exotic locale not a vast, noisy world of free cereal where your head rings from last night’s overindulgence.
SMH @ “kind of joking”. Too late now Lauren, you already put all the biz out there. But seriously a dining hall date?
