Big, fat, beer-swillin’, over-eatin’, former football great, Art Donovan, died at the spry age of 89.

Art sees a keg in the end zone.

Donovan lived a long life despite his Babe-Ruth-esque lifestyle.  Donovan was quoted as saying that, “hot dogs, cheeseburgers, pizza, baloney, and a couple of cases of Schlitz are all I’d need on a desert isle.”

Schlitz?!?… Schlitz?!?…  How do you live to 89 drinking that crap?  Hot dogs, baloney, cheeseburgers, these I get…  But Schiltz?  That shit’ll kill a man.

This dietary regiment goes a long way in explaining his lithe 300-pound physique. 

Donovan was a colorful, jovial character.  Kinda like Santa Claus.  But with drinking and hijinx.  Once, he filled a hotel shower stall with water so he could swim in it. It worked pretty well, until the shower door burst open, flooding his room and the one below it.

He said that the only weight training that he ever did was lifting 12 oz beer cans. 

I like this guy!  See, I can play football too.  I just need to work out more often.  I’ll be on the field in no time!  Beer goggles, full bladder, CAN’T LOSE!

So, keep drinking, who knows, you may go pro!

This hit goes to: “Imaginary” Steve!  The man who refuses to attend a draft because he will lose some of his so-called mystique gains another 20 points!

The good news for I-Steve is that this puts him above your illustrious Ghoul Pool Administrator.  The bad news for I-Steve is: that ain’t sayin’ much.

Happy pooling,

SPMI
