CHEESE BREAK!
Contestants in the men’s race chase a cheese down the steep gradient of Cooper’s Hill during the annual Bank Holiday tradition of cheese-rolling on Monday in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, England.

Although no longer a officially organized event since 2009, thousands of spectators still gathered to watch contestants from around the world tumbling down the 200m slope, which has a 1:1 gradient in parts, in a series of races that are said to date back hundreds of years, with the winner of each receiving a cheese. Injuries such as broken arms and legs are commonplace.  (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

HOPE YOU HAD LUNCH ALREADY: Subway made a statue out of sandwich materials of Georgia linebacker (and potential top NFL draft pick) Jarvis Jones. It is mildly terrifying. Maybe because we aren’t raisin people — his dreadlocks are made of 1,000 of them. (Photos: Diane Bondareff/Invision for SUBWAY/AP Images; Bebeto Matthews/The Associated Press)

Joe Flacco celebrated his historic contract in style on Monday: He went to McDonald’s. The Ravens quarterback became the highest-paid player in NFL history on Monday, after signing a $120.6-million deal over six years. That’s a whole lot of McNuggets.

According to ESPN, Flacco visited an Aberdeen, Maryland franchise mere hours after inking the deal. He ordered “a 10-piece McNugget meal, fries, and an unsweetened iced tea for $6.99.” Flacco is living large. (Photo: John Norman/Twitter)

It’s here: Our 2013 Super Bowl Party Game
There was a time when the National Post would refer to the following exercise as a “Super Bowl drinking game.” But we are older and wiser now and realize the importance of having a good base of food prior to libations. So, with that, this is the Super Bowl eating and drinking game. SHARE with your friends. We know how much you like chicken wings.

This is what 20-year old McJordan sauce looks like.

A man who used to own McDonald’s restaurants in North Dakota is about $10,000 richer after selling a 20-year-old container of McJordan barbeque sauce to a buyer in Chicago.

The sauce was used on McJordan Burgers, named for basketball icon Michael Jordan. The promotional item was sold in limited markets for a short time in the 1990s, when Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships.

Mort Bank, of Bismarck, saved the gallon jug of sauce after selling his McDonald’s restaurants in Bismarck-Mandan and Minot in 1996.

“It was in my basement and I would look at it occasionally,” he told The Bismarck Tribune. “I thought it would be worth something someday.”

He was too skinny. Now, he’s too fat.
If you are Nazem Kadri, who has been criticized by coaches for just about everything since the Toronto Maple Leafs drafted him seventh overall in 2009, where do you go from here?
More and more, it is looking like the team just does not want the top prospect to succeed. Or if they do, they have a funny way of showing it.
On Friday, Toronto Marlies (AHL) head coach Dallas Eakins told reporters that Kadri’s body fat is “probably in the bottom-three to five guys in our whole camp and that’s unacceptable.” He also said that Kadri’s skating tests were “average.”
But this past summer, he sought the help of Gary Roberts, a former Leaf who has gained a reputation as the NHL’s top trainer after working with Steven Stamkos, James Neal and Jeff Skinner, in an attempt to become stronger and more explosive.
What good will come to the Marlies for publicly shaming Kadri about his fitness?
