Just to make this sort of sports-related, here's a cute little story from my local paper about a Westchester kid who always dreamed of being a pro wrestler and is living his dream....
And there's not really too much in there, except the part where you read this part:
He attended pro wrestling school while he was still a college student, then moved to Louisville for two years to attend developmental school after graduating in 2002.
and you ask yourself, "Why didn't I attend pro wrestling school???" Seriously...I could kick some ass.
For whatever reason, the most interesting part of the article in the actual paper was not included in the online version. It reads kind of like this:
"Johnny doesn't do steroids. He just eats a lot."
Then there's a little daily planner. Which looks like this:
7 a.m. - wake up, immediately eat oatmeal, peanut butter, protein powder
10 a.m. - green tea
11 a.m. - gym, glutamine, branch-chain amino acids
1 p.m. - 2 scoops of protein powder + banana + berries + peanut butter + skim milk = super large and delicious protein shake; many vitamin pills
3:30 p.m. - 10 egg whites + 2 whole eggs + vegetables and some fat-free cheese
6 p.m. - meat with vegetables, brown rice, and half a potato
9 p.m. - leftovers
11:30 p.m. - fat-free cottage cheese w/ fruit
12 a.m. - sleep
No wonder athletes use performance enhancing drugs...who the hell has time for a food schedule like that???
In case none of that was interesting to you...perhaps my accompanying photo will be.
I apologize in advance for any nightmares that causes.
Just to give myself some nice dreams, here is my new favorite NFL journalist. Cam writes for the Contra Costa Times and is the perfect man. I wish Super Bowl Week could go on forever so he could be on ESPN every day. Unfortunately I can't find any pictures of him that do his immeasurable handsomeness any justice.
So we're going with this:
Oh my GOD, do I want me some Alex Smith.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday, everyone. Be safe tomorrow.
