Great Moments in Stout Closer History

Feb 24, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

All of us, if we’re lucky, will be remembered for something. The best at something we did. Notable in some occupation or pursuit. An inspiration to someone or, possibly, many.

Then some people may be best remembered for being squat specialists:


Beats what I’ll be remembered for. My lifelong dream was to eat the world’s largest hoagie. And I did it at the county fair last year.

Read more about Colby Suggs here. Dude throws in the upper 90s. Could be a good one, regardless of his height/weight ratio.

    I demand photo evidence of this hoagie.

    Rich Garces was listed at 6’0″, but I really doubt it. Anyway, the line starts with him.

    If it’s a buffet line, it also ends with him.

      came here to make that exact comment. You took the guapo right out of my…never mind. that doesn’t sound right.

      Chad Cordero is listed in as 6:00, 220. With the same caveat (and probably, the same buffet line).

    Bartolo Colon may not have a save, but he has 189 wins to his 5’11”, 265 lb frame.

    I thought your lifelong dream was to run on the field during a live game?
