ESPN’s Sports Science segments are typically comprised of silly concepts, which is appropriate for an ESPN foray into intellectual pursuits. This installment investigating whether glucose in small doses helps athletic performance is worthwhile only because it involves Marshawn Lynch downing an entire cauldron of Skittles. Also, Marshawn does his “hoolllldddd maaaahhhh dick” touchdown dive that he famously did in that awesome playoff run against the Saints a few years back.

Also I enjoy that at the end ESPN feels the need to instruct its audience not to interpret this segment as a suggestion to eat unlimited amounts of sugar or else they’ll get diabetes. The more you know, fatties.
