The Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame

There is not fat athlete's hall of fame but their should be and part of NAFAM's mission is to create a fat athletes hall of fame. We are compiling nominees and we ask our readers for their suggestions on who some of the nominees for the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

Here are a few of the shoe ins.

There could be no argument that the greatest home run slugger of all time should be in the  International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame. Babe Ruth was as skilled with the bat as he was with the fork. Back in his day with  a scarcity of junk food the Babe still managed to be quite fat.

Inductee George Herman Ruth aka The Babe, The Bambino, Babe Ruth and the Sultan of Swat was the consummate glutton. When he was not smacking four baggers and thrilling crowds at Yankee Stadium he was boozing it up, dining in New York's finest eatery's and banging groupies. The Babe, without a doubt, belongs in the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

 Born Eric Esche, Inductee The Butter Bean is the greatest super heavyweight boxer of the modern era. While we won't be seeing the Bean anytime soon in the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota,; we at Bigger Fatter Blog see the Bean, the king of the three rounder as the greatest super heavyweight fighter of all time and is opponents would agree.

http://img.metro.co.uk/i/pix/2008/07/georgeforemanAP_450x300.jpgHow can we forget two time world champion heavyweight boxer Big George Foreman?! The only man to legitimately beat Big George was Muhammed Ali but back then he wasn't fat. Ali would not have stood a chance against the cheese burger munching Big George who KO'd then champion Michael Moorer. If Ali had faced the same Foreman who defeated him in the Rumble in the Jungle the out come would have been very different. In his later years a happy Big George Foreman discovered the power of the cheese burger he was an even craftier boxer and more devastating punch than when he hair and was skinny, and scowling. Being hungry all the time made him weak and easy pray for quick punching of a better fed Ali.

Big George Foreman is now officially inducted into the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

Inductee Rudolf Walter Wanderone, Jr. (January 19, 1913 – January 15, 1996) better known as Minnesota Fats was without doubt the greatest pool hustler to ever play the game.  Fats has been recognized by the sport was was inducted in 1984 into the Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame for his decades-long public promotion of pool.

Inductee William Perry (born December 16, 1962) but best know by Chicago Bears fans as “The Refrigerator” or, abbreviated, “The Fridge” and also known as William the Refrigerator Perry. The Fridge's on field performance should put him in to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio but we feel that not only was the beloved fridge perhaps the greatest NFL football player of all time but his versatility as not only a blocker but as a running back and passer make the Refrigerator a member of the the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

Inductee Nelson Frazier, Jr. (born February 14, 1972) is  AKA Big Viscera, Mabel, Viscera, Big Daddy V, and King V. Best known as Big Viscera, Frazier is the most intimidating force to ever enter a WWE wrestling ring. His signature move is the body Avalanche. He is also known for boning WWE ring announcer Lillian Garcia and for breaking the Undertaker's eye socket with a powerful leg drop.

It's up to BFB's readers to nominate other great fat athletes. Please give us your thought on which fat athletes should be inducted into the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e2/Sheikmax.jpg
Another inductee is wrestler Max Capacity. While WWE bills the Big Show as as the world's largest athlete at 650 pounds Maximum Capacity is indeed the world's biggest athlete. Sorry Vince McMahon.

Max is not just the biggest athlete in the world, he is also a world champion in two different promotions. Max not only won the prized FOW hardcore championship but he also won the coveted WCEW hard core championship belt.

ATT: BFB READERS!

Fat Bastard,

I say Daley should be in like Flint. Think about it. He's the fat man's fat man. He's the glutton's glutton and he is a big fat party animal. Add that to the fact that he is the most talented golfer in the PGA and Daley should be heading the list. He is the Babe Ruth of golf.

He has a hot thinling girlfriend who flashes her fake boobs. Daley has been arrested for his drunken antics. He's an all American fat guy. No phony Tiger Woods PR shit with Daley. What you see is what you get. So what if he loses some weight? It will be temporary but his golfing achievements are permanent.

http://drunkathlete.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/john-daly-drunk-pictures1.jpg

Now with Tiger Woods exposed for the phony that he is Daley is a breath of fresh air to the stodgy world of professional golf. Of course I'm not only a meat face but I'm a huge huge John Daley fan.

You may want to include some Sumo wrestlers and that Russian weightlifter Vassily Alexiav.

Meat Face is right! John Daley is a living legend and the most talented golfer to ever play the game and he did it while he was really really fat! What was I thinking? SHEESH! Thank you Meat Face for bringing us to our senses. Golfing great John Daley most certainly exemplifies everything that the New Fat Acceptance represents. ie honest straight forward hedonism, debauchery and greedy gluttony. He's a true American hero!


I've got the drinkers and the smokers and the eaters on my side. They like what we do. -John Daley-

I was was going to post fat golf great John Daley but he has recently lost a whole lot of weight. I have yet to decide what to do. It is the policy of Bigger Fatter Blog to not discriminate against dieters, I mean we are not a bunch of angry jealous fat girls with chronic yeast infections but still Daley has many years of golf ahead of him and if he golfs better as non gluttonous non smoking non drinking, non womanizing thinling can he be eligible for induction if his thinling accomplishments outweigh his fatling accomplishments. I really need our readers to weigh in on this because Proud FA and I, Fat Bastard, are really at a loss as for what to do.

I am inclined to include Daley and so is Proud but we thought the only fair thing to do is ask our readers for their valued input.

Other than Daley losing weight, swearing of booze and working out his fat gluttonous behavior before that change was legendary. Any man who can play PGA golf while drunk puts him up their with greats like the Babe and the Mick (Mickey Mantle) who would play baseball drunk and or hungover. I think the Babe just stayed drunk.

Daley also stated that he avoided the gym because it would cut into his drinking. That's sort of gluttony and dedication to hedonism cannot be ignored.

Meat Face,

Thank you for pointing out our paralysis by analysis regarding golfer John Daley. Your observation was spot on. It take real fattitude to see the gestalt.

John Daley is now and forever in the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.

OINK!

John Daley I a BHM. What a sexy fat hunk he is!

John Kruk is a big fat ass baseball player. He is hall of fame material.

I also think that WWE wrestler Bastion Booger is hall of fame timber.

As a fat son of the South I can't help but admire them gooks who get so fat. Them big old sumo wrestlers get damn fat over yonder there in Japan on fish and rice. Them Japs is smart. I would have no problem with having gooks in the International Fat Hall of Fame. I like to marry me one of them little geesha gals.

There's only one sport where they actually aim to gain as much body fat as possible: Sumo Wrestling. According to this article - here is what a sumo wrestler does to get fat:

1. Skip breakfast. By depriving their bodies of food after eight hours of sleep, their metabolic rates stay low.

2. Exercise on an empty stomach. If their bodies have
no food, their metabolic thermostats are turned down even lower to conserve fuel.

3. Take a nap after eating. The Sumo secret for gaining weight is that, after eating, they sleep for at least four hours.

4. Eat late in the day. Going to bed with full stomachs means that their bodies must respond to the huge flood of nutrients with a rush of insulin, forcing their bodies to store some of it in the cells as fat instead of in the muscles and organs as nutrients.

5. Always eat with others in a social atmosphere. According to leading researchers, a meal eaten with others can be at least 44 percent larger and with 30 percent more calories and fat.

Here’s the list, sorted by weight (as listed at baseballreference.com):

1. Jumbo Brown, 295 pounds: Jumbo is not only the biggest pitcher to have a good season—he’s the biggest pitcher ever. His best season came in 1938, when he tossed 90 relief innings in 43 games for the New York Giants, posting a 1.80 ERA. Congrats on being the biggest dude ever to pitch in the majors, Jumbo.

2. C.C. Sabathia, 290 pounds: One of two guys on this list who won a Cy Young, Sabathia was lights out for the Indians in 2007. He’ll be a free agent after the 2008 season, and he’ll be looking for a contract that will pay him roughly $600,000 per pound.

3. Garland Buckeye, 260 pounds: I didn’t expect a 35 point spread between the fattest and second fattest pitchers, but it is what it is. In 1925, Buckeye made 18 starts for Cleveland, tossed 11 complete games, and posted a 3.65 ERA.

4. Bobby Munoz, 252 pounds: In 1994, Bobby Munoz finished the season with a 13-8 record when he put up a 2.67 ERA for the Phillies. He allowed 40 runs in 104.1 innings, with a WHIP of 1.306.

5. Chris Young, 250 pounds: Young’s 2007 season was largely overshadowed by Peavy’s Cy Young performance, but he put up great numbers for the Padres. In 30 starts he gave up 72 runs, had 2.32 K/BB and an ERA of 3.12.

6. Carlos Zambrano, 250 pounds: Wow, he have a lot of fat dudes pitching these days.

Zambrano’s best season came in 2004, when he had a 1.216 WHIP, allowed only 73 runs in 209.7 innings, and won 16 games for the Cubs.

7. Bartolo Colon, 250 pounds: The man who inspired this list. Colon won the Cy Young in 2005 before injuries shut him down for most of the next two seasons.

8. Jeff D’Amico, 250 pounds: He made 23 starts for the Brewers in 2000, and won 12 of them. He finished the season with a 2.66 ERA and a 2.16 K/BB. He pretty much sucked in every other season, though.

9. Tim Stoddard, 250 pounds: Stoddard was pretty awesome for the Orioles in 1980. He pitched 86 innings and earned 26 saves, striking out 64 and posting a 2.51 ERA in the process.

10.Johnny Hutchings, 250 pounds: Hutchings was a pretty mediocre pitcher for the majority of his 6 year career, but he put up pretty good numbers for the Boston Braves in 1945. In 185 innings he allowed 87 runs and finished with a 1.341 WHIP and 3.75 ERA

Dear Fat Bastard,

You are also forgetting The World's Largest Athlete, the professional wrestler known as Max Capacity! He weighs in at over 650 lbs, and has a YouTube channel. He did apply to be on the Biggest Loser, but he did not get selected, so he is still large and in charge. There is a 2 part video of him racking up over $500 at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, ordering lots of appetizers and everything. There is another video of him going to McDonalds and getting like 6 cheeseburgers, 2 large fries, and I think a big mac, and a large drink. So the man can really EAT! He reminds me of a thinner Belly Boy in a lot of ways.

I also suggest that all Yokozuna level sumo wrestlers be added to the list collectively, as well as The Dump Truck, who was one of the best American sumo wrestlers. You can look him up on Wikipedia.

Regards,

Big Lard Ass

Rev,

THANK YOU for pointing out these oversights. I will look for a good image of Max Capacity.
