Dallas Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware’s Lockout Regimen: All About The Hummers

While it sounds like a pretty awesome way to spend free time, the manner in which hummers are involved in the way Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware’s has been spending his time during the lockout is not quite as, um, pleasurable as one would originally suspect. Because the hummer in question isn’t the kind of hummer you pervs out there were led to believe. Nope. It’s that he’s been spending time at a Humvee dealership. And not even a functioning one, either. Ware has converted a closed Humvee dealership in Grapevine, Texas into a makeshift workout facility.

Via the Sporting News:

We’ve probably got some of the best weight-lifting equipment around the league in there, including free-motion weights which a guy donated, ropes and a device called “The Flipper” which simulates a tire that you can flip.

It’s a really exclusive gym. You won’t find another one like it.

Several of my teammates have been working out with me, including defensive end Stephen Bowen, fullback Chris Gronkowski, offensive tackle Robert Brewster and several other linebackers — Brandon Williams, Victor Butler and Anthony Spencer. I told them they could work out for free for the first month. After that, they’ve got to start paying monthly dues.

Hey, I’ve got to pay rent, you know?

But of course, Mr. Ware. We all need to make ends meet. But instead of making his teammates pay to use his improvised gym, keeping in mind these tough economic times and , Ware should instead start offering up hummers for a fair price. No, not that kind of hummer. The automobile. Jeez, you people. Although with today’s gas prices, a gas-guzzling Hummer isn’t really a wise investment in the first place.

Heh. Guzzling.
