Super Bowl MVP Von Miller cut out red meat, sports drinks, and junk food in the offseason to terrorize quarterbacks even more

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was rightfully named Super Bowl MVP after another dominant performance on Sunday.

Miller finished with six tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles, playing a huge part in the Broncos’ pass rush that shut down Cam Newton.

Miller has been one of the NFL’s fiercest defenders since entering the league in 2011, but part of his strong season can be traced to a more strict diet he took up in the offseason.

According to Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala, Miller spoke to reporters and said he cut out most red meat — burgers, steak, and pork — began drinking water over Gatorade, and cut out junk food like ice cream.

“I was in pretty good shape last year, but I want to go to another level. It’s always about how far you can push yourself and how much you can better yourself. I definitely feel like I’m in better shape than I was coming in to OTAs (organized team activities), and I feel like I’ll be in better shape going into training camp.”

“Sometimes you just have to step away from the burgers and stuff. It might not be hurting you, but it’s definitely not helping you.”

Miller added, “When the fourth quarter rolls around, I don’t want to be thinking about the ice cream I had the night before.”

Miller had also proclaimed that Denver would be the best defense in the NFL, and he was right. The Broncos finished the season with the best defense, and they continued to terrorize opposing quarterbacks in the postseason. In the AFC Championship, Miller once again had 2.5 sacks and an interception, clobbering Tom Brady in the process.

After such a successful season, it’s safe to assume Miller won’t be reverting back to his own diet this offseason.

Il est temps de débarrasser notre planète des moustiques

Les épidémies de dengue et de chikungunya, les ravages continus du paludisme ou la récente propagation du virus Zika prouvent que nous bénéficierions grandement de leur disparition. Pour décrire la propagation mondiale du virus Zika, l'OMS a parlé d'un «niveau d'alerte extrêmement élevé». Ce qui tombe sous le sens: la maladie, cause probable de malformations congénitales, pourrait affecter des millions de personnes dans plusieurs dizaines de pays. Mais deux faits pourraient se montrer plus rassurants. Le premier, c'est que le virus ne se transmet pas facilement de l'homme à l'homme. Le second, c'est que les bestioles vectrices de cette maladie -notamment deux espèces de moustiques, l'Aedes aegypti et l'Aedes albopictus- ne sont pas très actives en hiver et ne représentent pas de danger important dans des bâtiments bien isolés et climatisés. Alors d'où viennent ces rougeurs sur mon visage? Pourquoi mon souffle se fait-il de plus en plus court? Non, ce n'est pas de la panique, je vous jure, c'est de la rage. Cette épidémie de Zika et ses sales petits flavivirus miteux me mettent à cran. Reste qu'il est absurde d'en vouloir à un virus. Ce truc n'a aucune volonté animale, ce n'est même pas un organisme vivant en bonne et due forme. Non, l'objet de mon courroux n'est pas le virus, mais bien son vecteur. Je possède un réservoir de bile spécialement dédié aux seringues hypodermiques volantes qui hébergent ce pathogène, ces diptères qui zigzaguent d'un pays à l'autre et propagent la terreur biologique dans leur sillage. Je n'en peux plus des moustiques. Il est temps de leur pourrir la vie.      Et qui pourrait me contredire? Les événements de ces dernières années -les épidémies de dengue et de chikungunya, les ravages continus du paludisme- n'ont rien fait pour redorer le blason d'ores et déjà bien terne du moustique. De fait, ces parasites suceurs de sang et sniffeurs de sueur (…) Lire la suite sur Slate.fr

You're opinion on the best klaroline fanfic story right now...I'm going through a bit of a dry period and in serious need of a recommendation

Coven is my current fav, and I just loveee the same dynamic but with variations as well as a species expansion, almost. Caroline’s a witch in it, and Klaroline are mates, it’s good times.
