Grading Brewers LF Ben Gamel’s Pregame Ritual

Jason Terry slept in his next opponent’s shorts, Brian Urlacher ate 2 Girl Scout cookies, Alexander Ovechkin has sex, and almost every other athlete has some sort of pregame ritual. From grade school ballers to the highest paid professionals, these routines can range from a simple handshake to eating part of the field. Tame to probably insane.

Then, we have Brewers outfielder Ben Gamel. His pregame ritual looks more like a pregame for the Sigma Chi pimps and hoes date party than a baseball game in Milwaukee. Take a look:

Yup, he shotguns a Redbull before every game through a hole made by his metal spikes. Impressive form from someone who skipped college and went straight to the majors. This one definitely lies closer to Les Miles eating grass in terms of insanity, especially since no one needs to drink Redbull at all, much less chug it. However, it is much better than all the other one’s above… except Ovi’s, of course.
