Something delicious was in floating in the Hudson yesterday and it wasn’t just Ryan Lochte but Pizza Combos! We’ve had our first ever pizza delivery swimmer, but there’s no word on whether or not he had a 30 minutes or it’s free guarantee. Considering who the swimmer is, I guess there would be no point.
Ryan Lochte, he of Olympic gold, plied his trade for more down-to-earth (down-to-water?) purposes, swimming across the Hudson River to deliver a bunch of pizza snacks to people waiting at the Midtown Ferry Terminal. That means that Lochte, with a waterproof bag stuffed full of pizza snacks, crossed the Hudson just by swimming, which doesn’t sound anywhere near as impressive as it actually is. Most people would probably be dropping ballast less than halfway across the river.
Of course, it probably helped that he picked some nice weather to go for a swim. Anyway, I sure hope he got some tips after delivering the snacks (the Combos Pizzeria Pretzel snacks, specifically). Delivery boys have to eat, too.
