SI: I know. I won?t be having any.
THOMAS: So, how?s your love life?
SI: Focus, Hollis. I?m interviewing you, remember? So what were the staples of your diet growing up?
THOMAS: I didn?t have a diet when I was growing up.
SI: Do you cook?
THOMAS: I cook fried chicken real good. Actually, spaghetti?s my best dish. I cook it with a compilation of seasoned ground beef, tomato sauce, tomato paste. I make the sauce nice, rich and thick. Can?t give you all my secrets though.
[THIRD COURSE: Filet mignonwith onions; creamed spinach; mashed potatoes.]
SI: Have you ever wanted to be thin?
THOMAS: I was a skinny kid until high school, when I started playing sports. I don?t worry about being thin. That?s something everyone else does. If I was meant to be thin, I would be thin.
SI: You used to weigh about 370 pounds. Then, before last season, you started working with a nutritionist. How come?
