Super Pat

Pat Robertson, the 76 year old broadcaster of "The 700 Club" fame, is purportedly setting strength records. The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) recently posted a video of Mr. Robertson leg-pressing 1,000 pounds. However, the related new release on the website ( reported that he had pressed 2,000 pounds. This is a bit more than the world record of 1,335 pounds. Robertson gives a portion of the credit for his feat to a health shake he himself concocted and actively promotes on "The 700 Club." Questions have come up as to how he can use donor-supported air time to promote a health shake that has been sold through GNC health stores. Now, without explanation, GNC has ceased offering the shake. For those still wanting to leg-press 1,000 or 2,000 pounds, a free recipe for the special shake is still available on the CBN Website.
