Dwayne Wade to work at KFC?


Dwayne Wade to work at KFC?

CREATED Jul. 12, 2011

While fans can sniff the end of the NFL lockout, things aren't as rosy for the NBA - prompting some players to consider playing in euro leagues next season.

In the case of Dwayne Wade, he might be taking a job at KFC. On June 30th, the day the lockout started, Wade tweeted "any1 hiring?"...careful what you wish for.

The folks at KFC saw an opportunity and said they would donate $250,000 to charity if wade took his talents to drive through window.

Below is an excerpt from a letter that was written and released by the General Manager of KFC:

Dear Dwyane Wade,

We couldn't help but notice your recent tweet about looking for a new line of work in light of the lockout. We're always looking for folks with precisely your qualifications -- initiative, teamwork and the ability to make buckets in a hurry.

We've always been proud to call you a former KFC employee and, it goes without saying we'd love to have you back on our team dishing out the World's Best Chicken, like you dish out assists on the court.

Our offer: Come serve as an honorary captain at a local KFC drive-thru window. And, while we can't match your most recent salary, we'll honor your KFC service by making a donation in your name to Colonel's Scholars, a charity providing young people with much needed college scholarships, if you accept. How's that for a slam dunk?

Wade has yet to respond...neither has PETA.
