Log in to Reply He didn’t “fast for a month.” He fasted during daylight hours for a month. Big difference. Still impressive. Log in to Reply TIL that Hakeem Olajuwon is Muslim. Log in to Reply He got drafted in front of Jordan and nobody ever says it was a mistake. One of the more underrated athletes of our time… Which is crazy because everyone already agrees he was extremely good. Log in to Reply That’s not how Ramadan works. They don’t eat during the day and basically fest at night. Log in to Reply Or to put it another way Man allows his religious beliefs to nearly tank his career and physical health because of rules to get into a cosmic McDonald’s PlayPlace. Log in to Reply Here in England, a fair number of top footballers are practicing Muslims. There’s been a lot of discussion about how coaches and officials adapt to Ramadan, moving training sessions, adding small breaks for players to break their fast after sundown etc. Heck, my team (Liverpool) use non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice for celebrations so that our Muslim and teetotal players can partake in “spray champagne everywhere because we won” I’ve got nothing but respect for folks who can stay on their game while fasting. Personally, I’m a useless miserable prick if I miss breakfast and/or don’t get a cup of tea once an hour Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
