Here Come The Fat Dudes!


The old fat men are returning to the sports world. One would think fat men would be comfortable in their post-sporting life; they could, you know, just sit around and eat. But former Red Sox whale Rich Garces and former Supersonics DNA machine Shawn Kemp are making their way back. Garces, "El Guapo," if you will, has re-signed with the Sox and is reportedly "big," which is comforting to hear. Kemp, on the other hand, is slimming himself down, saying he "doesn't want to be remembered as Flubber, which is a shame, because we all enjoyed remembering him as Flubber. On his official Web site, Kemp stays quiet, probably because he's busy working out and impregnanting. It's nice to see them back. Hey, Barkley, you hearing this?
