The NFL lockout is a strange beast, with high paid athletes trying to fill their days with activities completely unrelated to football. Some players learn how to run their own coffee shops while others choose to enjoy the the simple delicacies of fried dough covered in sugar. (Much easier to just eat doughnuts than run a whole business, fyi)
Men About Town Jon Dorenbos, Brent Celek, Todd Herremans, and wives Julie Dorenbos and Susie Celek took a tour of the Krispy Kreme shop in Mayfair. Because, you know, what else do they have to do with their time?
The Dorenboses called up their personal blogger, PhillyChitChat, to come along for the ride (and, presumably, sugar high). He documented how the doughnuts were made, and posted photos and videos over at his blog.

Here's a sample video:
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Former University of Kansas basketball player Josh Jackson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation for backing into a car and driving away.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Jackson entered his plea Tuesday in Lawrence Municipal Court to striking an unattended vehicle. Two other charges, inattentive driving and improper backing, were dismissed.
Jackson, who is expected to be a top draft pick in next month's NBA draft, will be on probation for six months and must pay a $250 fine. If he violates his probation, Jackson would have to serve 30 days in jail.
Coach Bill Self suspended Jackson for the opening game of the Big 12 Tournament because of the incident.
The 6-foot-8 Jackson has now resolved two cases that had dogged him during his lone year at Kansas. He earlier reached a diversion agreement that requires him to attend anger management classes, write a letter of apology and refrain from using alcohol or recreational drugs for a year for his confrontation with a Jayhawks women's basketball player last year.
Jackson had pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage after he argued with McKenzie Calvert on Dec. 9 outside a bar in Lawrence. He signed the diversion agreement on April 26.
It appears the Big3 League media blitz is already underway.
Allen Iverson and his Killer 3s team doesn't start play until the end of June and doesn't roll through Philadelphia until the middle of July, but that hasn't stopped the Answer from doing a little promo for the gimicky league.
A.I. sat down with actor and general hoops junkie Michael Rapaport for Fox Sports 1 for a segment that will air next month but they shared a teaser online.
In it, the topic of trash talking comes up. Iverson says he wasn't much of a talker himself but witnessed plenty from the likes of Michael Jordan who used intimidation to get to Aaron McKie.
