Method Man Got High on ESPN and Spent 5 Minutes Talking About Playing Lacrosse in High School
Method Man took part in a classic interview on 'The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz.'
Every week, Dan LeBatard and Jon "Stugotz" Weiner welcome a Celebrity Prognosticator onto their ESPN Radio show to predict the outcomes of NFL games. If that celebrity is able to correctly predict the outcome of more games than FS1’s Colin Cowherd, he or she is then invited back to The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz the following week to do it all over again. And over the course of the last month, Method Man has been absolutely tearing it up with his NFL picks.
We’re glad he’s been on point, too, because it led to a pretty amazing segment on Wednesday afternoon when Meth joined the show. Prior to making picks, LeBatard and Stugotz always interview their celebrity guest about a bunch of other stuff. During the course of their interview with Meth, the Wu-Tang Clan rapper coughed very loudly into the phone, which led to this incredible line of questioning.
"Is that a weed cough?" LeBatard asked. "Are you hitting from the bong right now?"
"Nah, I’m actually hitting a blunt," Meth replied, "but we all good."
Yes, we are all good, and from there, the interview only got better.
Right before the cough, Stugotz, a former high school lacrosse player, was gearing up to ask Meth about his time playing the game as a kid. Once the cat was out of the bag and everyone knew Meth was high, the lacrosse segment of the interview was that much more entertaining, as Meth spent five minutes waxing poetic about playing lacrosse and how much he loved it. As if that wasn’t enough, Meth and Stugotz also realized that they probably played against one another in high school after Meth, without knowing that he had gone there, referred to Stugotz’s high school as "soft as baby snot."
Meth explained he first got into the game when he was 11, after his cousin handed him a stick and told him he could use it as a weapon during matches. He also spoke about how lacrosse allowed him to let out a lot of the frustration he felt as a teen. At one point, he told a story about the time he violently attacked an opposing player and got thrown out of a game.
You can hear LeBatard ask Meth if he’s smoking weed at about the 22-minute mark in the clip above before the lacrosse talk begins. Let’s hope Meth’s NFL hot streak continues so that he can keep on telling great stories like this.
