Kevin Durant is stopping by Capitol Hill tomorrow and we’re wishing him all the best.


If he slips on some Congressional testimony and misses the season, don’t blame us.

We love injury-prone Texas Longhorn basketball superstars.

Here’s the Dear Colleague circulating Capitol Hill:

Join NBA Star Kevin Durant and the Gatorade Company for a Briefing on Sports Nutrition!

Dear Colleagues,

The Congressional Fitness Caucus is pleased to invite you and your staff to a discussion and briefing on sports nutrition with Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, The Gatorade Company, and scientists from the Gatorade Sports Science Institute.  Durant, the NBA’s 2010 regular season leading scorer, will discuss the importance of good nutrition and the NBA’s FIT program.  Kevin Durant will also share some tips for being physically active.

The event will also feature a session with the scientists who will perform exercise testing, similar to the testing conducted with athletes like Dwight Howard and Tim Tebow, in a mobile lab on a high school athlete highlighting the energy requirements teen athletes need while training and competing.

You will have a photo and autograph opportunity with Kevin Durant at the conclusion of the event.
