So as some of you may have heard, I am Canadian (eh?). Shocking, I know.
This morning, my mom was telling me how one of our athletes' mom died of a heart attack.
Quote from my mom: "She was so young and healthy!"
Fast-forward 5 hours to me grilling some salmon in te kitchen. I open the news to hear about this very same story.
They showed a picture of the mother, who was about 3 times the width and 2/3 the height of her 20-something(?) daughter.
Quote from the news: "She was only 55! How could this have happened?"
Okay, so I know we're all constantly saying that the norm has been moving in the wrong direction for a long time, but this...come on. That's like nobody even looked at the picture.
I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but if my mother and the people at the news station can't understand how on Earth a 300 pound (guesstimate) woman of 55 years of age can have a heart attack, maybe the situation is a lot worse than we realize.
