Sports Fans Get W's and Diabetes.
Who would you say is the most famous person in Louisville? Well, just stop any Luvillian on the street and ask them a few questions...
1. Who's the Govener? Answer: "Uhh, oh, umm, who's that, oh, Butcher guy?"
2. Who's the Mayor? Answer: "Oh, JERRY! Haven't seen him in a while, though? Huh."
3. Who are Charlie Strong and Rick Pintino? Answer: gods.
When it comes to leaders in Louisville, it doesn't get any bigger than "Ricky 3 Stacks" and "Chucky Muscles." Now, seeing as these men are held to such a high caliber one would think that they would be choosy, classy even, when it came to their endorsements. When it comes to endorsing food items, seeing as Chuck's muscles seem to bust out of his shmedium shirts all day and Porchini Pitino looks like he's been surving on lettuce and water (not to mention the fact that he threatened certain staff members with their positions if they didn't get on the health train - GO KNIGHTS!!), you'd think that they would keep the idea of "health" in mind.
Dear Ricky Rick and the Chucky Bunch,
You are collegiate athletic coaches and tons of half ton kids hold you on pedistals. In fact, I'd like to see either of go near a 680 calorie Bacon Buford...I doubt you'd even go for Rally's diet burger. At only 570 calories, the Big Buford is is a kids meal compared to their new creations. That's right. RALLY'S!!! Walk up window, no inside seating, pooling grease in their fries, Ranch and cheese served as a side items, RALLY'S!! Quite the contrary to all of their kid fit camps that are promoted throughout the summer months.
"Come on, kids. Get active with our world class athletes, then we'll head to Rally's for some diabetes. GO CARDS!"
The irony being that Kentucky's Calipari is the one that looks like he's been indulging in a Rally Burger or two (using the extra grease to hold his hair back), but maybe thats just one too many Papa Johns pizzas. Thanks Kentucky leaders for helping us with the obesity crises. No, Kentucky's fat problem is not your responsibility, but as a public figure BY CHOICE, you could reap some financial benefits from...I don't know...somewhere that chooses not to serve garlic flavored love handles. Thaaaaannnnkkkkkssss!!!!!
