Pat Robertson Is The Strongest Man Alive

CBS Sportsline's SPIN columnist Clay Travis points out the following dubious claim, as professed on noted televangelist Pat Robertson on his Web site:

Did you know that Pat Robertson can leg-press 2000 pounds! How does he do it?

Where does Pat find the time and energy to host a daily, national TV show, head a world-wide ministry, develop visionary scholars, while traveling the globe as a statesman?

One of Pat's secrets to keeping his energy high and his vitality soaring is his age-defying protein shake. Pat developed a delicious, refreshing shake, filled with energy-producing nutrients.


We're guessing that one of those "energy-producing nutrients" is black-tar heroin, because that's the only way ole Pat could leg press 2,000 pounds without noticing that every bone in the lower half of his body had shattered. (As Travis points out, the Florida State record for the leg press is 665 pounds.) Oral Roberts, though? That dude was a beast in the weight room; man could lift 675 pounds with his nipples. Something to see.
