A recent article from the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/23/spo...
describes Adrian Peterson's dedication to his home town of Palistine, Texas. Also applies to food according to his brother, Derrick:
"Yet Derrick Peterson insists that money has not changed his brother, as evidenced by his steady diet of sardines, Vienna sausages, Spam and ramen noodles.
“He’s still country,” Derrick Peterson, 22, said in a telephone interview. “He’s keeping it real.”
I admire Adrian as a now and future football star and wish him well; I like his brother's recognition of diet as an indicator of non-corruption by money; I can make sense of the diet; and ask fellow CHers what they think.
