I just caught the new Snickers commercial.
You know, the one that features Patrick Ewing authoring an in-your-face slam dunk on some schlep who was too busy munching on a Snickers bar to realize that Ewing was on his way up.
Oh, did I mention that Ewing, who was dressed up in full basketball attire (tank, shorts, etc.) looked like he had just inhaled a dozen candy bars a day since he retired?
Why is it that most professional athletes put on the pounds after they retire?
I know that I've probably put on a good 15-20 since I graduated college, but that was 12 years ago, and I was never a professional athlete.
So, as a tribute to those who trained so hard to never look like us and yet ended up looking like us anyway, I present to you five ex-athletes who, for better or for worse, have retired from professional sports and have taken up eating as a hobby.
