It was a sad day here at Fat City when the above tweet from sports columnist Jason Whitlock came across the transom. Whitlock forgoing basketball in the name of vegan food is like discovering that professional wrestling was fake. Is "Big Sexy" now the "Big Veggie"? There are few things in this world that make sense, but Whitlock eating barbecue from Gates and watching the NCAA tournament has always been one of the anchors of the man axis here in Kansas City.
Somewhere someone's ranting. And somewhere he's on Fox. But there is no joy in KC, for Whitlock, mighty Whitlock, is meated out.
