I'm not much of a sports fan but I like this article because it's in Men's Journal teaching guys that plant based athletes can be strong and can even improve their performance, and that can only be a good thing for the animals. I also admire the bravery of these men who face mockery and criticism and aren't afraid to go against the grain and follow their own logic. rockon.gif

That's way awesome, and great publicity in a good way.

I dunno anything about sports but I'm all for positive publicity in a men's magazine!
