With Leather has never been an overwhelmingly pro-Miami Heat type of site. We’ll write “congrats to the heat on that thing they won” in passing in our morning links, but post 30 paragraphs about their fans are d-bags.
Occasionally they’ll do something positive for the community and we’ll write it up. That’s the case with today’s Heat update, and I will ease into the blockquote without mentioning how I’m only sharing it because Shane Battier is doing a karaoke version of the theme to the f**king ‘Love Boat.’
Join Shane Battier for the second annual “South Beach Battioke” celebrity karaoke event on Monday, January 21, 2013, at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel in Miami Beach, to benefit The Battier Take Charge Foundation.
Man, listen to that. It’s glorious. It’s the exact opposite of Mario Chalmers trying to rap.
Tickets to the event are $250, so if you’ve been saving a quarter of a thousand dollars to see LeBron James put on a wig and mug his way through a Pretty Ricky track, this may be your chance. Worst case scenario, you’ll get to find out whether or not Battier knows the lyrics to ‘Love, American Style.’
