Don Shula's got big balls. (Almost as big as Stephan Pastis'.)
Passed by his beloved restaurant in New York's Westin Hotel a week ago, and was FLOORED by the inclusion of an item-by-item calorie count on the lobby menu.
Holy jeez, I thought Arizona's infamous Heart Attack Grill and its Quadruple-Bypass Burger was bad, but some of the dishes that Shula's offers contain more calories than a healthy human specimen should consume in a week.
Okay, I exaggerate...but not by much.
While I kick myself for not taking a photo or at least copious notes, let's just say that I'll be staying away from the 48-ounce Porterhouse, the 24-ounce Prime Rib au Jus and the Apple Cobbler lest I want a stainless-steel chest-spreader for my birthday and a nano-bot crawling through my arteries for the rest of my life. Even the French Cut Chicken Breast upped my cholesterol count just by looking at it. Faithful FOPS, we're talking calories in the MULTIPLE thousands per plate here!
Go figure...the legendary former Miami Dolphins coach is a spokesperson for Nutrisystem.
Man, if he can do that, maybe Mark Fortier can get me a spokesperson gig for the NBA Players Association...
