Top 10 athletes who enjoy Thanksgiving dinner more than you

26 Nov

There’s nothing better than sitting down with your loved ones to share a nice slaughtered turkey on Thanksgiving. We know it’s your favorite day of the year. But, here’s a list of 10 athletes that love chowing down on turkey dinner more than you.

No. 10 Antonio Alfonseca

zalfonseca.jpgMost lists of this nature would probably have “Alf” (no, not Gordon Shumway) much higher on the list. But we here at The Max are not completely convinced that he’s a porker. Just look at the placement of his lard. Sits kinda high, doesn’t it? We’re gonna continue to investigate this one, but our instincts tell us that there’s a pillow stuffed in there.








No. 9 Jared Lorenzen

No. 8 Livan Hernandez

zlivan.jpgOur terrible cropping job doesn’t do Livan justice here. He’s clearly stretching prior to his daily run… to Dunkin’ Donuts.











No. 7 Bartolo Colon

zcolon.jpgWe feel kinda bad poking fun at Big Bart’s bulging belly, seeing as he went to great lengths to drop a few LBs while in Boston last season. But if you thought we were above making fun, you don’t know The Max. We have fairly low on morals.









No. 6 Miguel Cabrera

zcab.jpgIs he eating his way out of baseball, or what?












No. 5 Rich Garces

zgarces.jpgThe photo says it all. And while Miguel Cabrera may be eating his way out of baseball (present tense), Garces has already successfully eaten his way out of the bigs (past tense).








No. 4 Bob Wickman

That’s one mean looking dude, which is why we are holding back any witty comments (here’s your chance to say that we were holding back witty comments on the previous six, as well. Oh, you’re so mean).









No. 3 Bobby Jenks

zjenks.jpgWe’re noticing a pattern here. Why are most of these guys pitchers? Come on, guys. Take a jog in between starts. Or invest in a stationary bike. Even better – get a Bowflex; they really work… just watch their commercials.










No. 2 Prince Fielder

zprince.jpgThis guy’s as much a vegetarian as WWE is real. Who does he think he’s foolin’? But to be honest, we are a bit surprised to see him make this list. After all, his father is so svelte.








No. 1 John Daly

    Good question – why are so many of them pitchers? See if they were sitting in the Red Sox bullpen they would keep in shape by taking part in the bullpen band that we have. I think that’s what helped Colon. Maybe that’s why he left and never returned to us. The jam sessions must have been too much for him. And John Daly? What a sad waste of incredible talent. Happy Turkey Day Guys!

    Where’s Sir Sidney? I think he favors double scotches over Dunkin’ Donuts but he belongs here…..I’m about to add your great blog to my blog roll. Thanks for putting me on yours!

    Hey, I believe you asked me about how to put pics on the sidebar.. the way I did it was by creating a link list, as you did with “nice sites…” and then put this code:

    as the link.
    Hope that answers your question.

    Small tidbit…Bob Wickman is from the town of Abrams, Wisconsin. Actually, he grew up not far from where I did just outside of Green Bay. While he’s a little older than me, he is very much a redneck type and can be a bit of a brute.
    I loved that guy when he played for the Brewers. He fit right in.

    Have a safe holiday…keep up the good work.

    That’s facinating. All these athletes have sooo much money, and they eat too well! Have a great Thanksgiving!
