Don't read this memoir of life on Harvard's football team while drinking hot liquids. You have been warned.

Thank you for that warning. It was well deserved.

Are bananas good for weight gain?

Coach Mac had several different techniques to help me gain weight—all slightly insane, all damaging to my self-worth. Sometimes he would use a subtle approach, using passive-aggressive comments to hint at ways in which I could get bigger.

"Kester, do you know why I eat so many bananas?" he once asked, stuffing a piece of the fruit down his throat.

"I don't know. Because they're delicious?"

"Have you ever seen a small fucking gorilla?"

Impeccable logic.


I love this coach; forget political correctness, this is the kind of coach every young athlete needs.
