Mailbag: Leg-Pressing For Jesus

UBob: I'm still chortlin over the story that Pat Robertson, when he was 73, allegedly leg pressed 2000 POUNDS! Some protein shake he drinks (you can't make this stuff up). Pat is insane. He just so is.

DFO: You'd be frightened if you knew how much I agreed with your assessment. Out of respect for my godly mother who looks up to these charlatans, I don't say much here. At the peak of my weight-lifting days, I'd do leg-press reps of 500 pounds or so. Never tried to max out. But I surely wouldn't get anywhere near a thousand. Robertson, like Swaggart, Roberts and Bakker, has become a millionaire by bilking the faithful. I'd hate to be in their shoes on the other side.
