A unique take on sports news, updated several times throughout the day.
Tank working his way toward aircraft carrier?
The Chicago Sun-Times has acquired records of the the $665 worth of primarily junk food that Johnson bought from the prison commissary to supplement his three squares a day. The list starts with 162 beef sticks, 40 honey bun sweet rolls, 35 summer sausage blocks and 35 bags of barbeque chips, running all the way down to one cupcake. It might be impressive that Tank limited himself to just one cupcake if he didn't also order nine tortillas, six packs of refried beans and nine packages of jalapeno dip. With a diet like that, it's probably best for everyone that Tank was held in isolation. (Thanks to 10 Spot reader James of Dallas for the tip.)

Someone call Richard Simmons - quick!
If he's allowed to supplement his menu to maintain his physique, he should be also able to bring in a few guns for protection.
Sweet mother of....I gained 13 lbs. reading that. I'm trying to think of any sport, beyond sumo, where this is a GOOD strategy. I guess maybe this'll make sure no other inmates want to get "close" to him...being that it's physically impossible now.
I guess he literally wants to be a Bear.
162 beef sticks?!?! Dude must be a HUGE Randy "Macho Man" Savage fan.
A brotha's got to eat...
Bring back the good ol' days of bread and water.
Where was he sentenced to serve his time? The food court at the Galleria? He would have served harder time on a cruise ship.
