Is "The Fridge" The Greatest Athlete Of Our Generation?

If you’re a busy person and you don’t have the time today to read a full blog, here’s the short version of this one: Yes. Yes he is. Not only is The Fridge is the greatest athlete of our generation, but there’s a damn good chance he’s one of the greatest athletes to ever live.

Now on to the rest of the blog…

As a society, we often look at sports stars to be heroes and role models. But for the most part, we put these people up on a pedestal for the wrong reasons. Most of the time we really only look up to these people because they are winners. We say to ourselves that as long as an athlete is performing well, we can look past whatever flaws they may have as a human being and still treat them like gods. It doesn’t matter if they’re actually a bad person, just as long as they are winning. But for an athlete like The Fridge? Well not only is this legend out here winning races, but he’s also proving to the world that you don’t need to look like you were chiseled out of stone to be an elite athlete. You don’t need the 6 pack abs. You don’t need to be wearing the newest pair of Nikes. There is greatness in all of us, and that is what The Fridge represents.

So what if you just spent your weekend gassing an unfathomable amount of beers and crushing a bunch of hot dogs. Just because you’ve got a little bit of fluff going on around your belly doesn’t mean that you can’t be the fastest mother fucker on the planet. I mean just look at this man’s ability to go from 0 to 60.

That speed isn’t from spending years and years training on the track as a kid. That’s the type of speed you get from spending years and years running from the cops because you were underage drinking in the woods. He’s the Peoples Champ. A hero for the common man everywhere. I just pray that the fame doesn’t start of change him. It would make me sick if The Fridge starts to shed a few el-bees and get skinny all because he’s new stardom starts to get to his head. Don’t just stay fat for me, Mr. Fridge. But stay fat for all the hundreds of thousands of tubby little kids who look up to you as a source of inspiration.
