    Padres Show Class At Local Steak House

    Last night, Furman mentioned that the Padres went to the Jeff Ruby Steak House after they lost Tuesdays game. The total dinner bill was $6000 and they left a $2000 tip. (33%)

    Piazza arranged this through his long-time friendship with Ruby (Lasorda connection???). I've heard he does it every year when whatever team he's on travels into Cincy.

    I can tell you that this kind of tip is NOT common, not even from the wealthy or famous.

    But when it happens, it restores your faith in humanity. Seriously.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I'm sure it's not....and I'd bet there was more than one server.

    But man, walking out with that kind of change after 1 night of work would be sweet.

    A lot of my friends work at a trendy hotel restaurant in New York. They split all their tips with bartenders, the runners, the busboys, the hostesses...and they still walk regularly with $1000 a night. They're union too, so they have insurance, which is rare for servers. And they do not nearly bust their butts the way I did as a server/bartender at a dive farther downtown. I'm not complaining though, I made good money, and truly loved the work.

    Tiger Woods is a lousy tipper.

    Wow. What service, do tell, did he "stiff" you for, so to speak?

    I have heard stories that SHAQ leaves a $100 tip even if he just gets one drink at a bar.

    Hilariously, I have waited on very few sports stars, but that was one of them. And he tipped very well.

    Maybe I made him a stiffer drink than you did
