Shareece Wright knows the importance of a good first impression.
A cornerback who spent the first four years of his NFL career in San Diego and the following two in Baltimore, Wright recently signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills had a voluntary practice on Monday, but Wright found himself in Chicago at 11 p.m. on Sunday night. Yes, the practice was voluntary—but Wright apparently really wanted to attend. He figured that an 8-hour, 533-mile Uber ride was his best solution:
Yep, Wright took an Uber all the way from Chicago to Buffalo. The trip ended up costing him nearly $1,000. According to The Buffalo News, Uber won't be available in Western New York until at least the end of June. That means that Hadi—Wright's Uber driver for the trip—probably had to drive a long distance before he could find another customer.
The good news is that he seems to have zero regrets:
It was the best trip ever. — Hadi Abdollahian (@hadiabdollahian) June 7, 2017
