TIL that after Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said NBA referee manager Ed Rush "wouldn't be able to manage a Dairy Queen", Dairy Queen management took offence and offered to let Cuban manage a Dairy Queen for a day. Cuban accepted.

TIL in 2012 Mark Cuban offered Donald Trump $1 million to a charity of Trump's choosing if Trump shaved his head.

I just love the thought of some DQ manager in the middle of no-where thinking "Hey! Fuck you Cuban you dickwad"

And for that reason, I'm out.

I remember this. Mark had to do a new schedule for the dq employees on the day he was at DQ being a manager and he just copied last week's schedule but then a couple employees needed certain days off and Mark had a hell of a time with that lol

I want Cuban levels of fuck you money

Cuban is the best entrepreneur. He’s been fined several hundred thousand for cursing out refs and cursing on national TV.

Mark Cuban is the billionaire that Donald Trump thinks Donald Trump is.

This was classic early Cuban. I remember seeing the footage on Fox Sports Net.

He bought everyone free cones that day too. I only know because I went through the drive thru that exact day. Second time I met him I was in high school at a journalism conference in downtown (Dallas) & was in line complaining that I couldn't afford a $10 T-Shirt from the event. I feel a tap on my shoulder & Cuban hands me a $20 & says "here get your friend one too." Then spent about an hour talking journalism & taking photos/signing autographs for a bunch of high schoolers. Genuinely nice guy.

Haha, this guy invested in a League of Legends team so he was on one of their live shows. He accidentally said fuck while they were streaming a swear free stream, and they told him he'd be fined. "How much is the fine?" "Β£30000 to charity. You wanna do it again!?" "Fuck it." Literally has fuck you money.

TIL that he is a fucking young looking 59 year old.

Haha it's funny, doesn't really relate to his comment about Ed Rush tho. Probably still can't run a Dairy Queen
14 Jan 2018 14:57 - +161
Did they really think a self made billionaire like Cuban can't manage a fast food restaurant? His while life is management.
14 Jan 2018 14:06 - +87
He probably only did it because Warren Buffet's company owns Dairy Queen and he didn't want to piss off Warren by bad mouthing his company.
14 Jan 2018 16:33 - +46
And?!?! I feel like this TIL stops at the most interesting part. Could Mark Cuban manage a Dairy Queen? Was it, like officiating an NBA game, harder than he thought? I need answers!

The performance appraisal at the end of the day would've been interesting.

And I got a blizzard from him. He even held it upside down.
