Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Derrick Brooks to chair Physical Fitness committee

Florida has a standup comic for Governor. From the St. Petersburg Times-

‘Governor Charlie’ Crist said he is creating a Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness. He tapped Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks to chair the group, which will try to reduce the number of Floridians with chronic problems related to obesity.

Anyone note the irony in Derrick Brooks selection to chair a group on physical fitness and obesity? Brooks weighs 235 lbs while standing 6′ tall. By these charts, Mr. Brooks is overweight. Putting a fat man in charge of a group fighting obesity is like appointing Twiggy to study why models are too thin.

Florida isn’t this a great state or what?
