Oh yeah, Tebow sucks and is in the wrong position on the wrong team in the wrong league. No one wants to make him sad because he's such a nice boy.
I think we differ in our definitions of "nutritious" which to me means the nutritional content, and there is nutritional value in pizza (though I doubt in Domino's).
I guess you didn't really read the blog, which quoted a book that I read, which I do not have at hand. Sorry, I'm not going to find the book and post it's references, so I'll just leave it at this.
Take it as you wish..
The puritans assert that there is no value in the consumption of beer after a day of climbing. This defies a century of tradition and isn’t entirely true. Mass-produced “beer” that nutritionists and aficionados revile is made with rice, corn, coloring, flavorings, and enzymes. This insipid drink is the equivalent of white bread—bland and lacking most of the good nutrition. A 12-ounce can contains about 1 gram protein, 25 mg sodium, and only a trace of potassium or B vitamins.
But a finely crafted beer is only made with barley, wheat, hops, and water. This is akin to good whole-grain bread, better tasting and better for you. A good microbrew contains about 2.2 grams protein, 75 mg sodium, 195 mg potassium, and 5 to 15 percent of the DRI for riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, and vitamin B-6. Plus the high hops content contains nine flavonoids that you won’t find in sport drinks. Even better, if you can find them, are cask-conditioned ales, which are unfiltered and naturally carbonated; rather like fine artisan bread pulled fresh from the oven.
Here's a little more..
And oh yeah, Tebow sucks, and I agree with everything you said on that subject
