Hungry?? Why Wait?

Babe Ruth was well-known for satisfying his enormous appetite with hot dogs and beers in the dugout during games. In last night's Yankees vs. White Sox game in the 5th inning, Sox CF (and fattest leadoff hitter in baseball) Nick Swisher, was unable to catch Jorge Posada's line drive double that scored 2 runs. Rather than stopping the ball with his glove, Swisher snagged the baseball with his mouth like a golden retriever (NOTE: speaking of golden, Swisher began the season with one of the ugliest blonde dye-job goatees in baseball history). Once the inning ended, Swisher came running back to dugout in a rage of hunger, looking for anything short of a water cooler to shove in his mouth!
