    For sure. But someone said what's the harm of the occasional burrito. The answer is nothing if it is in place of.... But as an add on, it ain't good. (I'm a scientist in this area) ;) And I enjoy burritos!

    Just to get my head wrapped around this. How big are these burritos?

    Or rather, how tall...

    Do we have a photo with McKennie holding a burrito, preferably next to CP under the goal frame.

    Exactly. "Pulisic has traveled to Cologne to meet with world renowned surgeon Dr. XYZ, where he will undergo a sports hernia related surgery, and is expected to be out for 3-4 months whilst this heals. Lampard is happy to know that his star winger, barring any complications from the recovery process, should be ready to go by the beginning of the new season in the fall. 'It's tough to lose him for the remainder of the season, but we've got players coming back into the squad and they'll be ready to go. We'll bring some reinforcements in over the summer, so we should be fine by the time Pulisic is ready to come back into the team next term.'"

    I guess I've read too many of those from other YA's that I've got it down pat. My apologies. I figured the Dr. XYZ in the quote was early enough.

    Hey Mr. Food Scientist... This guy is a professional athlete in the top and most grueling league in the world. He runs ~7 miles a match and trains just as hard. Even when he is injured he probably burns many more calories in rehab than we collectively do going about our normal routines.

    He can eat a F-ING Chipotle burrito at least once a week!

    Unlike us fat footy fans, he should not trying to lose weight, he should be trying to gain it (with muscle mass, of course).

    Funny. I posted a "fake" (I prefer "ironic" or "clever") quote on BigSoccer recently. I only realized the next day how stupid it was for me to do that. Of course, I got fooled with this one.

    Agreed. This discussion has gotten rediculous. I woujld argue that the only athletes that watch their diets THAT closely (meaning as strictly as some here suggest) are professional fighters looking to cut/dial in their weight leading up to a fight, and professional bodybuilders (non-offseason.)
    He doesn't have the frame to have to worry about the "he ate all the pies" syndrome.

    It's great - because of it, I went to Chipotle for the first time in a year. It was good.

    Good point! Luckily I also drank a voluminous amount of alcohol to sanitize my stomach.

    I would trade a heightened risk of E coli (and don't forget all the trouble they got in for hiring undocumented workers) for how good Chipotle used to be in a heartbeat.

    So weird that I posted this this week.

    Robert Conrad passed away today at age 84.

    He acted in some of my favorite shows when I was a kid.

    As well as the above infamous commercials.

    If this story is true, I can't see them spending 100M on Sancho while they still need to spend for a new LB and possibly a new GK this summer.

    I suspect if CP and CHO do well the rest of the season, they'll eventually cool off spending so much on Sancho.

    My sense is that Man Utd is going all in on Sancho, and won't be outspent.
