Normally, Ravens fans might be upset to hear that one of their own has been providing food to a Steeler before every home game against Pittsburgh for the past few years.
But this story is just plain awesome.
Casey Hampton revealed to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that before recent Steelers games in Baltimore, a Ravens fan heckles Hampton about his weight and delivers him a hot dog.
"There's one fan, I don’t know his name but we go at it every year," Hampton said. "He brings me a hot dog out and everything. He takes care of me. That's my guy."
Hampton says he doesn't mind the heckling. He knows he's large and he can deal with it. He's just happy to have the hot dog, which he always eats before the game.
"All the time, no question," Hampton said when asked if he eats the hot dog. "After the first couple of times seeing there was nothing wrong with it. It's pretty good. Just plain, before the game I don't want to upset my stomach too much. I just eat it plain. Usually, I’ll put ketchup and mustard on [a hot dog] though. A little Gatorade with it, it's good."
You can't blame Hampton for chowing down before the big game. What else would you expect from a guy whose nickname is "Big Snack"?
(H/T to Game On!)
