The Papa Fallout

Papa Johns apologized for giving out LeBron James "Crybaby 23" t-shirts last week in Washington prior to the Cavs vs. Wizards first round playoff game. The pizza chain offered all Ohio residents 23 cent large one-topping pizzas yesterday and 86 Papa Johns stores participated. Police had to be called to many stores as the animals pushed and shoved in long lines to get their pepperoni fix. The Louisville, Kentucky-based company will also donate $10,000 to the Cavaliers Youth Fund. In University Heights, an auxiliary police officer tried to settle a line-cutting complaint. In Springfield Township outside Akron, police said there was an argument between two people in line about whether or not sausage is considered a vegetable, but no one was hurt and there were no arrests. Locations were making 300 pizzas an hour to satisfy lines in which customers waited 90 minutes.
