Default Bosh To Put Up $25,000?

Remember reading about Sam's saying that he'll sing "O Canada" if someone offers $25,000 that in turn will be donated to charity? Well we apparently have someone who's willing to offer the donation. None other than Mr. Bosh himself.

This should be hiliarious whenever it happens.

It was kind of strange for Mitchell to even offer this up … ’cause the topic came out of nowhere … sort of sprung out of a light-hearted conversation with the media about American politics and the pending Canadian citizenship of Raptors Director of Media Relations, Jim LaBumbard.

Anyway, in speaking about Canada, Mitchell said he would take $10,000 from someone … donate it ALL to charity … and then sing “O Canada” before a Raptors game at the ACC. He then quickly changed the $10k price tag to $25k.

Well, after the Raps game-day shoot-around this morning … I had a chance to quickly chat with Chris Bosh … after he had wrapped up his usual questions from the media. I informed Bosh of Mitchell’s idea to sing the anthem.

After first responding: “Twenty-five thousand? Shoot, I’ve got twenty-five CENTS” … Bosh went on to tell me that he might consider putting up the money himself! In fact, Bosh sounded serious when he told me that if the money would end up going to the Chris Bosh Foundation, he’d pay the $25 G’s.

According to his website ( www.chrisboshfoundation.org ), “The Chris Bosh Foundation is a non-profit organization promoting social enrichment, education and physical fitness among youth. The Foundation assists youth in reaching the educational and athletic goals they set through mentoring and setting examples in the community.”

Clearly this would count as charity … so we’ll have to find out if Mitchell is truly ready to back his words!

For what it’s worth, Bosh said he has heard Sam sing before … and he thinks he’s TERRIBLE. And even if CB4 didn’t end up fronting the entire $25,000 himself, he said he could maybe pass a hat around the locker room and get everyone on the team to chip-in some cash.

Mitchell was not available for comment after I chatted with Bosh, so I will inform him of the potential deal later tonight before the Bobcats/Raptors and I’ll see if I can’t help broker this deal.

This apparently is the result of the FAN590 INSIDER morning show on April 2nd. The hosts, Landry and Stellick, challenged him and Sam said he would do it if there was money involved. $10K was the number.

For those who don't know, Sam is on every Wednesday morning at 8:10am and it's hilarious to hear him diss the hosts.

I listened to that yesterday. He called them A1 and A2 -- as in Ass One and Ass Two. He also mentioned getting info "from tha' horses mouth instead of tha' muuuules ass."
