De’Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings shot off a tweet on Thursday afternoon that opened up a whole new culinary door for us. What in the world is boudain?
There are plenty of different ways that NBA players are passing the time during the current hiatus, and we’ve been doing our best to keep up with Sacramento Kings players and their habits in this pseudo-off season.
One of the more popular activities for point guard De’Aaron Fox is video games and streaming on his Twitch channel, as is evidenced by his tweets that rarely vary from the topics. He has been playing Call Of Duty, streaming with Josh Hart, and giving his harsh opinions on the NBA 2K franchise.
But Fox shot off an interesting tweet on Thursday afternoon that has nothing to do with gaming. We assume.
What is boudain? Is that a food? It sounds like a food. Maybe it’s a restaurant chain. Fox has been vocal in the past about his unwavering opinion on foods such as In-N-Out and Whataburger, so that is our first guess. Does Fox want a hamburger? Boudain kind of sounds like poutine, which is delicious and also Canadian. Fox is from Texas.
We did a bit of googling, and at first we were more confused now than we were to start. First, google redirects you to the spelling “boudin”, which is in fact a food. Pictures of sausages appeared in the sidebar. Could this be what Fox is craving during the NBA hiatus?
Amusingly enough, the number one result of the search is from a website called www.homesicktexan.com. Ding ding ding. We have our answer.
According to Lisa Fain on that there website, boudin is a cajun food. “A sausage that’s stuffed with pork, liver, rice, and a host of aromatics and spices. It’s what fuels road trips heading east on I-10 from Houston into Louisiana, as almost every gas station worth its salt will have poached or smoked boudin on hand, ready for snacking.”
Houston. De’Aaron Fox.
We wanted to help our guy out. He’s probably tired of eating the same old delivery options. Is there anywhere that he can get boudin from in the area? Do people from around here even know what that is? WHERE IS THE BOUDIN?
If you know where Fox can get some boudin, let him know. And then let me know.
