Chili’s Mocks Cavs Owner in Response to ESPY’s Sketch

Chili’s president Wyman T. Roberts is taking issue with this somewhat decent sketch from the rarely amusing ESPYs in which Steve Carell and Paul Rudd mocked “The Decision” starring LeBron James. This time, though, the topic of conversation shifted from basketball to Chili’s and Outback Steakhouse, with Carell announcing that he’s ditching the former for the latter. At least Chili’s exec Roberts seems to have a sense of humor about the whole thing, and like everyone else, is taking the piss in regards to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert’s whiny response to LeBron’s announce. A larger version of Roberts’ message to Carell is after the jump.
