3/8/05 Awful Commercials

In a perfect segue from yesterday, I stumbled across AwfulCommercials.com. The blog is dedicated to the crap commercials on TV. I seriously hope they post that financial institution one I mentioned yesterday. I'd also be happy to see that Hillary Duff , liquid mint thingie commercial on there too. And while I'm at it, may I add Gladys Knight playing rugby.

According to BMI, Shaq is obese. At 7 foot 1, 325 pounds, he is only 13 percent body fat. According to the article, almost half of all NBA players are overweight. Basketball players! Skinny, tall basketball players! Maybe BMI isn't a good way to gauge overall health, eh? What happened to percent body fat readings? Or oxygen measurements while doing exercise?

Kids, don't try this at home.

I wish my choir in high school were this cool.

The ACSH has a nice article on athletes' BMI and BMI in general.
