According to The Wall Street Journal, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez is vegan. Here's the funniest excerpt from the story:
Living solely on plant food, a combination of nuts, fruits, vegetables, grains and the like, has long been the fringe diet of young rebels and aging nonconformists. Even the government recommends regular helpings of meat, fish and dairy. Vegans of late have gotten more hip with such best sellers as the brash "Skinny Bitch," and its more scholarly cousin, "The China Study." Both books argue vegans can live longer.Yes, because the government knows exactly what people should eat... good one! But aging nonconformists? That's not fair... conform to what? Stupidity? Anyway, The New York Times got in on the investigation that eating meat might be... well, problematic. For even more fun, read Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser.
