Here are the highlights from Monday’s Three For All on Middays with MFB with Christian Fauria and guest host Danny Picard. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
Auburn commit Kerryon Johnson opted for something a little bit more extreme than Gatorade in order to stay sharp during a high school football game Friday. The running back chugged a bottle of mustard at the sidelines at one point in order to avoid cramps.
“I have never seen anything like that in my entire life,” Picard said. “If you had told me that this was a true story, I would say, ‘No, no way.’ ”
“So every time I eat a hot dog, I’m also hydrating,” Fauria remarked.
While Fauria never chugged mustard before games during his NFL career, he did opt for another unusual beverage to stay cramp-free.
“I used to drink Pedialyte. I would drink, almost felt like a gallon, of Pedialyte before each game,” Fauria said. “After doing it for like 13 years, some researcher said, ‘You know, you’re not getting any benefit from that.’ ”
“You were in the NFL, and you were drinking Pedialyte?” Picard asked.
As is the case seemingly every year, drama and controversy surrounded MTV’s Video Music Awards, even during the event’s pre-show parties.
Shots rang out during an event hosted by singer Chris Brown during the early morning hours Sunday in West Hollywood. Music producer Suge Knight was shot six times in the attack.
“This is not the first time this has been news,” Picard said, as Knight was previously involved in the drive-by shooting that claimed the life of rapper Tupac Shakur in 1996.
While Knight was wounded, reports emerged that the assailant was aiming for Brown and pop star Justin Bieber.
“How did they miss?” Fauria joked.
“Look, I know people hate Biebs, but they’re trying to take him out with bullets?” Picard said.
