Who knows whether he's actually writing the site or not, but USC fullback Brandon Hancock's site has been worth a check-in from time to time, if only to marvel at the sheer amount of food required to keep up his boulderish physique. One detail does concern us, though, nested among all the egg whites and lean proteins in meal one of seven for the day:

Multi-Vitamin & 2 tablespoons Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil? We've heard that before. Not saying that Brandon's been 'roiding out--we know what that looks like thanks to a viewing of TLC's "The Man Whose Arms Exploded", and Brandon's discipline, lifting, and genetics explain his ability to block out the sun more than any Tijuana supplements. But you do raise an eyebrow when you see "flaxseed oil," despite the fact that the stuff is great for you and goes through you like a bullet train. You may want to clarify that in light of Bonds' own weasel-assing around the topic of "flaxseed oil" use. Just some pr advice for someone who's the size of Rwandan Mountain Gorilla and fond of taking his shirt off to show it.
