Quite often, people who only have good intentions get screwed over. Like when Andy Bernard just wanted to improve sales in the office and ended up having to get a tattoo on his ass, or when I was non-creepily following this girl home from the bar because I wanted to make sure she got home alright and ended up getting arrested for stalking. I don’t care what the police say; I still know I did the right thing because while I was peering in through her bedroom window afterwards I could tell she had arrived home safely, all thanks to me.
Anyways, ex-Badger star Michael Finley just may become the next victim of his own good intentions.
”Former Badger, and all-time great, Michael Finley has offered to pay for any Wisconsin students’ drinks at the Final Four festivities all weekend.

What a stand-up guy.
For a rich man who used to play for the Badgers, this sounds like an easy enough deal. They show up, marvel at your glory, show you their student ID, then you buy them a drink (presumably a swamp water, a schnorkle, or das boot), they thank you, and you both go on your merry way.
Here’s the problem, though. This is Wisconsin. These kids drink. It’s all they know how to do. That, paired with this…

…means that Finley might be shelling out more than a few G’s this weekend.

It’s a good thing that it’s Michael Finley and not JERmichael Finley who’s handing out drinks, because he’d probably drop them. If you’re from Wisconsin you’re laughing at that joke right now.
