Travel Channel’s Man Vs. Food Eats At Me

posted by mattaug

When Man Vs Food is on, I will travel to another channel, at least if its toward the end of the program.

The Travel Channel show is informative and interesting when it comes to showing how food is prepared and enjoyed at restaurants.

But the essence of the program, the Man vs. Food part is tough for me to watch, perhaps because as a slightly overweight person I have “abused” food myself at times.

I feel the host, Adam Richman, abuses food when he makes it a competition in order to win something, like a guitar, as he did in a recent program.

Yes, I know the competitions are “pre-existing” at restaurants to lure some people into attempting to get a free meal.

What a way to, burp!, enjoy a meal though.

Perhaps I shouldn’t take it so seriously, but when so much of the world is starving and we continue to waste and misuse food so much in the U.S. it’s upsetting.

Confronting poverty and shortages of food here and around the world?

A good thing to do.

“Confronting” a two-pound burger a plate of pasta and a milkshake at the same time?

Not so much.

I totally agree on the Man V. Food article. I could really do without seeing Adam Richman stuff his face into an early grave.

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
