SNL: Palin-Fey, Phelps 12,000 calorie diet

Saturday Night Live this week sounds like a recap of this blog from the past few weeks.

Frightening realization, straight from my mom:  if Micheal Phelps eats that much, just imagine how many times a day he must be go to the bathroom.  Terrifying.

And as for Tina Fey: she nailed Palin — tone, cadence, facial expressions…  I never thought of her as much of an impressionist (not a criticism, I just don’t think she did many segments in that vein) — but she was incredible.  Granted I’m like, 90% in love with her already, but I think this was a great moment.  If they ever have Tina Palin and Sarah Palin come together on a segment, I think my head will explode.

Unfortunately, as they ran the SNL opening credits I also made this prediction:  “That was the peak for the season; it’s all downhill from here.”  And the rest of the show pretty much proved that out (though Weekdend Update was pretty strong).

breakfast of champions

I feel guilty when I throw together an egg, cheese, and some ham on a grilled piece of toast (grilling it soaks up all the tasty butter from the eggs and the ham juice — yum), but check out what Michael Phelps eats for breakfast:

Phelps lends a new spin to the phrase “Breakfast of Champions” by starting off his day by eating three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise.

He follows that up with two cups of coffee, a five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar and three chocolate-chip pancakes.

… about 4,000 calories worth, PER MEAL, according to the NYP (they call him Boy Gorge).

some people say that many calories — and really a lot of it from ‘bad’ foods like cheese, eggs, mayo, powdered sugar — will kill you.  in the interest of hearing both sides of the issue:
