Whataburger Tweets Congratulations, Invitation to Texas Tech Men’s Basketball
A trip to Boston, Massachusetts is in order for Texas Tech men's basketball, and probably a quick stop at Whataburger.
Texas' favorite fast food restaurant sent the invite to Coach Beard and the team Saturday night after the Red Raiders secured a spot in the Sweet 16.
The invitation, however, isn't a random occurrence. Coach Beard is apparently a big Whataburger fan -- as you can see from this clip ESPN tweeted out before the Red Raiders beat the Florida Gators on Saturday night, 69-66.
We love how "during the day" Coach Beard is "pretty easy" with his Whataburger picks (a #1 with mustard, pickles and cheese only). But things get a little trickier if he's with his girlfriend or daughters.
Arguably the best part is Beard's recommendation to never do the drive-thru at Whataburger when you're there after midnight. "Just get a corner booth and just watch America -- just watch it. You see so many cool things," said Beard.
Now we're hungry for some Whataburger.
Texas Tech will play either Butler or Purdue (depending on who wins that Sunday matchup) next Friday in Boston. It will be the team's first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 2005.
