Oy Vey: Mark Cuban Compares Super Bowl To A Bar Mitzvah


Sometimes, I wonder if Mark Cuban even thinks about what he is saying before he says it. And then I wonder why I am spending even one second thinking about what Mark Cuban is thinking.

Mark Cuban, never afraid to engage in a little hyperbole, said that the activities and parties leading up to the NBA All-Star Game in Dallas on February 14th “literally could be the largest party weekend in the history of the United States. That’s how big this thing has gotten.”

He then stated his belief that the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl are about as low-key as a Jewish coming-of-age ceremony.

“The Super Bowl, from a television perspective, is the biggest event of the year. But for attendance and partying, All-Star Weekend will make the Super Bowl look like a bar mitzvah.”

Huh. I have never been to a Bar Mitzvah myself, but I imagine them to be like any other social gathering – it’s all about who you invite. I bet Cuban has never been to a Bar Mitzvah where Me First & The Gimme Gimmes were the band. Talk about a rager.
