“You da man, John!” — “No, you the man, Em!”
Turn off that Manti Te’o interview with Katie Couric. Ain’t nobody got time for that fool/liar (choose one). Okay, now that I’ve got your attention, check out this news tidbit about John Wall that I find amusing.
Remember that time Wall got bashed because he had put on some weight? (Woah, there. I know the camera adds 10lbs, but come on!) But you have to love John Wall, because he made amends and is starting to hit his stride after returning to the Wizards lineup. It looks like he is now owning up to the effects of the injury, as John Wall will speak to students and promote the NBA’s annual FIT Live Healthy Week. The FIT week started today, and Wall joins Harrison Barnes, Tyson Chandler, Goran Dragic, Kevin Love, Wesley Matthews and
Blanche Chandler Parsons.
Celebrity chefs like Rachel Ray will also participate. Check out Wall’s comments on this from an excerpt of a USA Today article:
“Shrimp Alfredo was my go-to meal, but you don’t need to Alfredo sauce,” Wall said with a smile. “My mom came to town, and her cooking is a lot of fried and Southern food. I had to make sure I didn’t eat too much of that.”
After putting on extra weight, Wall said, “I had to make sure I got back to where I needed to be” for his return.
“I was very active at a young age and used a lot of energy running around,” Wall said. “It helps you stay in shape. I want to make sure kids don’t get too big at a young age. You have to make sure you stay conditioned and eat healthy.”
Good for John Wall. And thumbs up to his choice of salmon and vegetables.
