Grilled Avocado and Sardine Sandwich

I never thought of Alton Brown as being overweight, though I don't always watch Good Eats or Iron Chef America (or anything else, really) on a regular basis, so when I saw him on more recent episodes of Iron Chef, I thought he must be very ill – so gaunt! – and I felt a surge of sympathy and admiration for him as he soldiered on, clearly determined to continue his work despite whatever debilitation he was battling privately.

Pretty sad, huh?  That I confused HEALTHY-LOOKING with DESPERATELY ILL.
