BIO:A star in wrestling, basketball, football, swimming and, track, Slater persevered in the face of simple mathematics by playing 5 sports in 3 seasons. As well as simple logic: no way anyone could maintain hair like that through the rigors of chlorine, wrestling headgear and a football helmet.
His only wrestling loss in high school occurred when he joined a match halfway through, replacing Samuel Powers, who was not even an official member of the Bayside wrestling team. Slater was disqualified after it was discovered that there were, like, 15 things wrong with this.
Albert Slater is seen as an inspiration to all Hispanics with unbelievably white names.
Real life resemblance: Danny Ainge. But whiter.

The Gym: Issue #2

I go to a gym on a military base, and while the equipment is great, a bunch of naked old guys using the locker next to me is really improving my 40 yard dash times.
I go to my gym right after work and it's packed. You usually have to wait to get on a treadmill. Well this older guy was running and suddenly stops and sort of staggers off the treadmill and lays down beside it on the ground. Everyone thought he was having a heart attack. A gym worker called for an ambulance and everything.
So he's laying there with his treadmill still open right beside him. And a guy like three people behind me steps up and starts using it as the old guy is potentially dying on the floor. The looks he got could have killed him, too.
(Good news: the old guy just had the flu or something and was fine.)
If I ever go to the gym earlier than Noon I always see this 70 or 80 year-old woman. She is probably 4'11'' and 150 pounds and always wears at least 2 or 3 winter coats. The weird part is she always wears these spandex pants that never fail to make me gag. I always wondered why she wore them until one day I saw her on a lat pull down machine. Instead of using the machine, she would adjust the seat to wear she could sit on it while still standing, then proceed to hump the sh-t out of it for 5 minutes. She literally would just stand there and grind the seat. I stopped coming to the gym before Noon.
