For Fudd, breakfast is a pregame meal fit for a queen. The omelet takes center stage, loaded with a symphony of veggies. The bacon, however, receives its own fair trial. As every breakfast enthusiast knows, hotel bacon can be a hit or miss. But when the stars align, Fudd indulges in a couple of crispy strips, accompanied by toast. She gleefully asserts, “That’s my ideal. I love breakfast. I could eat that anytime.” Who can blame her? Bacon makes everything better. Can we dub her the Bacon Queen of Basketball?

A Salad Extravaganza

Now, picture the sun higher in the sky, midday approaching. It’s salad time! Fudd’s mid-afternoon delight consists of a vibrant bowl loaded with greens, topped with a bonus character that gives the salad a protein punch – potentially chicken, depending on the chicken’s appearance that day. And what’s a salad without bacon? Fudd happily sprinkles some bacon bits on her creation. It’s clear that she recognizes the magical touch of bacon in any culinary creation, proving that it’s a versatile ingredient that adds marvel to any dish.

Post-meal, Fudd retreats to her room, where she embarks on a carefully curated self-care routine. A luxurious shower is a must, followed by donning the quirky air compression boots that pulsate their way up her legs, increasing blood flow and leaving her feeling like the queen of basketball in the land of circulatory bliss. But the pampering doesn’t stop there. Fudd stretches and rolls her body with a foam roller, ensuring her limbs are limber and her movements are as graceful as a swan on the court.

A Throne Fit for a Champion

After all the self-care rituals, the time for a small pregame siesta arrives. But nerves can somehow turn a nap into a distant dreamland. It’s in these moments of anxious anticipation that Fudd reveals what might be the secret sauce behind her success – the “pregame poop.” Yes, you read that right. The serene stillness of the hotel bathroom becomes a sanctuary where Fudd lightens her physical and mental load, flushing away any worries and paving the way for a victorious performance.

The Game Day Showtime

Ready, set, play! After the throne-worthy ritual, Fudd’s ankles receive the tape of champions, securing her for the battle ahead. A few foot exercises to prime her lower limbs follow suit. But wait, there’s more. Just when you think it couldn’t get any more interesting, Fudd blesses us with the revelation of another round of pregame toilet time. She proudly announces, “I usually always have something in me. I could not eat, and I’ll still find a way to poop.” Now, that’s dedication!

Are these ritualistic routines the keys to Fudd’s success? Only time will tell. However, one thing is for certain – her unapologetic quirkiness and dedication to her unique pregame preparations make her a truly one-of-a-kind player.
