Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant has a special club and you're not included


Man, there was nothing worse than going over to my neighbors house when I was a kid and not being allowed entry into their treehouse cause it was ‘girls only’.

The hell was that crap all about? I even tried to bribe them with candy, but it didn’t work and I’m guessing a candy bribe wouldn’t work to join Kobe Bryant‘s exclusive ‘Vino Club’ either. Now Lamar Odom on the other hand….

So what is the Vino Club, you ask? Well, I’m not exactly sure – I do know it only has a handful of select members, though recently Kobe himself inducted Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos after he tossed seven touchdown’s in the season opener.

P. Manning! Welcome to with @jtimberlake@FloydMayweather

In essence, the Vino Club is some self-created group which Bryant has included himself in, along with boxer Floyd Mayweather, entertainer Justin Timberlake and now Peyton Manning.

What are the perks, you ask? Good question – I don’t think I or even any member of the clique know, though I will say you probably don’t get complimentary room service in Denver.
