I can only imagine what Bartolo Colon was saying to his Mets teammates at the moment this image was captured.
“Who needs a six pack when you can carry a whole keg???”
In this day and age when every baseball player, even formerly fat guys like CC Sabathia, are all about staying in the best shape possible, at least we still have Bartolo Colon to remind us of the glories of the past.
As long as Bartolo Colon is around, we will never forget what a true baseball player physique looks like.
Keep jiggling that fat Bartolo Colon.
Jiggle it for John Kruk.
Jiggle it for Rick Reuschel.
Jiggle it for David Wells.
Jiggle it for Tony Gwynn.
Jiggle it for Babe G.D. Ruth.
Most importantly, jiggle it for every 40-year-old overweight beer-swilling Mets fan snoozing in the back row, a fine trail of drool dripping slowly from his sagging lower lip.
That guy needs a hero too.
