when athletes hawk diet plans.

I can't be the only one to catch these lame Nutri-System commercials with Dan Marino, Mike Golic, Cris Carter, and other notables (I think one of them has Don Shula) that seem to run a lot on ESPN (yeah, I broke the fucking resolution not to watch while they slurped off Dreamboat and Mongoloid #1; oh well.) Aside from the food looking like crap, I note that John Kruk always utters this line:

"My wife doesn't think I'm so disgusting to look at any more."

I'm not sure whether Kruk's wife is lying or has a severe lack of tact, if she said that. Maybe both. I wonder how starstruck you have to be to have Dan Marino sell you on an overpriced diet system that doesn't do anything that speed couldn't do better.

The absolute best (and by best, I mean worst) part of Shula. Everybody else gets named, says how much weight they lost, yada yada yada (well, except for Kruk, I guess).

Shula, however, has to throw in a stupid, "Hey Marino." I don't know why it angers me, but it does.

It's kinda patronizing, isn't it?
