So Pat Robertson says he can leg-press 2,000 pounds? Sports types say that’s nonsense, given that the televangelist is 76 and that much younger athletes can’t even get to 1,000 pounds. A statement from Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network asserts that Robertson’s physician “has leg-pressed 2,700 pounds. It is not nearly as hard as the authors of these reports make it out to be. We have multiple witnesses to the 2,000 pound leg press, plus video of the 10 reps of 1,000 pounds.” The Wonkette blog joked that Robertson’s doc must be Bruce “The Hulk” Banner. CBN’s Web site also credits, in part, Robertson’s “age-defying protein shake.” Smells like a merchandising ploy.
