If you’re a Portland Trail Blazers fan looking to get that game-day “lupa,” you’re going to have to bring your own.
That’s the theme of a rap song recently created by two Trail Blazers fans, who are ardently protesting the organization’s switch from Taco Bell to McDonald’s.
The video was spotted by Stephen Douglas of The Big Lead (h/t Jeff Koenig of Next Impulse Sports), and goes after the Trail Blazers, which will now offer vouchers for McDonald’s Egg McMuffins after 100-point games instead of chalupas.
Titled “I’ma Bring My Own Chalupa,” the song is exactly what it sounds like—a protest/resignation in the face of changing times at the organization.
Long gone are the days when a fan could leave the Moda Center with a winning ticket in hand and go to the nearest Taco Bell expecting a delicious victory chalupa.
Now they have to wait until morning, long after the thrill of the game has washed away and all enthusiasm has died.
Even worse, you have to brave morning traffic and get there before 10:30 a.m. in order to claim your reward of a steam-heated egg disk and cheese. Oh, and the sausage—let's not forget about that brown wheel of gristle.
I’m going to make a judgement call on the guys in this video and say that they probably avoid waking up before 10 a.m. whenever they can. The organization is levying undue stress and strain on these young men, and it’s causing them to dress up in pig costumes and pour hot sauce on their faces.
It’s just not humane.
I lie. I love Sausage Egg McMuffins.
