Dwight Howard is on the cover of the latest SPORTS ILLUSTRATED issue, where the mag has an in-depth write-up of what makes the Orlando Magic star tick. (At least I guess that’s what the article is about. My subscription ran out a while ago, and the local Jiffy Lube didn’t have it amongst their magazine pile when I brought my car in for a oil change the other day. So I had to make do with Cosmopolitan - and learned 101 ways to please your man.)
(”Pull my finger!”)
Anyway, Mike Bianchi of the ORLANDO SENTINEL still has his subscription, and while perusing the article, he came across a blurb about one of Howard’s hobbies that’s sure to raise a big stink - Dwight really likes to fart.
Bianchi passes along this quote about Howard’s penchant for passing gas:
“He (Howard) fools around at practice, during press conferences and during shootaround, where Magic coach Stan Van Gundy has had to institute a no-flatulence rule because, as forward Rashard Lewis says, ‘Dwight really likes to cut the cheese.’ “
No wonder fans sitting courtside at Amway Arena are given complimentary gas masks. Seems to me that the Glade company has a golden sponsorship opportunity on their hands.
Maybe Dwight should do something about his diet. Perhaps cutting back on the cabbage & beans. It must be hell for the other Magic players & coaches when chili is served for the team’s meals.
Wonder what Martellus Bennett would have to say about this?
