Multiple news outlets (herehere and here, for example) are chalking the dinner up to rookie hazing without bothering to get any context. According to someone in attendance, Johnson picked up at least a portion of the check. Johnson is not a rookie, and frankly, "rookie dinner" can mean anything. For all anyone knows, it could have been the vets treating the rookies to dinner, and not the other way around. But why bother trying to get details?

Also... Who downed five ginger ales?
