Falcons’ Keith Smith’s Wild Obsession With Chipotle May Require An Intervention

There are very few things I’d even consider doing five times a day unless my wife is on a work trip.

Falcons fullback Keith Smith’s commitment to dining at Chipotle may result in his loved ones gathering in a circle and reading prepared emotional letters of encouragement to pull Keith back from the brink.

We sat down with the 28-year-old fullback on our latest episode of the Endless Hustle Podcast to discuss his dependence on the American fast casual chain that once drove him to inhale 21 spicy servings of Chipotle to the dismay of the nearest toilet.

“You won’t believe it but most people who know me know it’s legit.

I actually eat Chipotle about four or five times a day. This is not a joke. Four or five times a day I got my bowl. Same thing every time. I get chicken and a side of rice and then I get a side of beans.”

If Keith eats Chipotle four times per day for an entire year, that amounts to 1,460 servings and about $14,600 of annual spending at the joint.

This hits home for me because the only reason you’re reading this right now is because I soiled my pants in public after eating Chipotle. This is not only the #1 Chipotle poop story on the internet (hold your applause), but it’s what allowed me to quit my finance job and join BroBible full-time in 2015.

I know the dangers of Chipotle more than anyone, and while many may view Smith’s dietary habits as innocuous, it’s just a matter of time before Collinsworth is forced to tell America why Keith Smith’s pants are brown.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
