As Kris is still touring the countryside ... something on the radio today caught my attention. Charlie Sheen is some loser actor, apparently famous for being a druggie and a philanderer. He's been in and out of rehab, arrested, and is a definite train wreck.

The UCLA baseball team asked Charlie Sheen to come and speak to them. (Why him? I wonder if all the positive role models were busy ... working?)

What did he have to say to them? He told the team, "Stay off the crack. Drink a chocolate milk."

My ears perked up when I heard this. Maybe the results are common knowledge now. They're oft-quoted, anyway - specifically the study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism that outlined how chocolate milk helps refuel you after a workout better than other drinks.

Which goes to show - even train wrecks get it right sometime.

Maybe Charlie was trying to tell us something. From someone who's done the comparison. I think we can safely assume from this statement ... chocolate milk is the legal equivalent of crack.

I love chocolate milk, but everyone over 21 knows that the best post -run drink is a beer.

What about a nice brown Russian? Is that a good compromise?
