Because Taco Bell would be seen as a performance enhancing substance.

Only in the speed-pooping event.

If you ripped a big enough fart it might add extra propulsion.

I've snarkily enjoyed the McDonald's commercials emphasizing selections of 400 calories or fewer. Yeah, right. Suddenly Mickey D's is the healthy way to eat fast food? How cynically opportunistic. Six months from now, they'll be back to advertising the same old greasy garbage.

Fark you, the McRib is a classic diet food. They use some of the same stuff in yoga mats.

Conveniently absent is other nutritional data. Oh, 400 calories, eh? How much sodium? How much fat? What vitamins are present and it what quantities? Oh, it's nothing but fat and salt rolled together, all nutrition processed out? Well... at least it's only 400 calories!

Because, when I think of "the runs," I think of McDonald's - and nothing runs faster than Usain Bolt.

Justin Verlander -- the guy who won the American League MVP and Cy Young awards last year -- mentioned that he always eats Taco Bell before his games. So, maybe.

McDonalds is has delicious burgers and fries and there's nothing wrong with it when eaten in moderation.

What? Do you guys think you're too good for McDonalds?

Well their morning after burrito does keep female athletes from missing the games.

I meant absent from the advertisement. Context, dude. He and I were talking about McDonalds advertising calorie counts.

Lots of athletes have McDonalds pre-race. They can pretty much count on something they can eat that is convenient and fairly consistent in different countries.

Rule 40. Athletes can only talk about approved sponsors. If he'd had a Burger King, he wouldn't have been allowed to mention that. Guess what? He had a McDonalds. And probably a nice contract in future.

you just woke up to the massive changes at MacDaddy ever since "Super Size Me" (2004) ? they've been changing it up big time for a long time. their drive-up menu board has become ridiculous, the choices go on and on to the point of clutter.

my vote for recent fast food wars fark up is Burgher King trying to introduce some healthier fare in a family-oriented dining way (their most recent campaign). the King has done well by ignoring any pretense of healthy good for you food and they should stay that course. i don't go to the B.K. Lounge because i like myself. that food is not for people with self-respect.

Yes.

Much like the Olympics, I also eat at McDonalds every two years.

Had the number 4 today. Pretty sure that's 1000 calories all told.

No one would do it, but I'd love to see an athlete purposely break Rule 40 and bad (just be blatant about it). Basically force the IOC to punish them and make them face all the backlash for choosing Sponsors>spirit of the games.

While McDonalds does have the concession for food in the Olympic village, Mr. Bolt has never made
any secret of his love of McNuggets before big races.

Ding!

And, like many athletes it's not because they're under contract.
