It’s been a week full of cake-related discussions in the chaotic world of sports.Wednesday Night Max Houma and Joel Dahmen viewed as problematic The old adage is ‘Take the cake and eat it too’. Who would eat cake without eating cake, Homa pondered on Twitter. Well, it didn’t take me long to find the answer…
San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler. Earlier this week, Kapler celebrated his 47th birthday. He received a giant steak-shaped cake for his second year in a row, and for the second year in a row he didn’t even try to take a bite.
why? Because Kapler is a fitness buff, and like all fitness buffs, he has an addictive personality and knows that a divine forkful of chocolate and frosting can trigger a full-blown glucose relapse. No, according to Kupler, didn’t he eat his birthday cake again?
“I don’t like being forced into one day,” Kapler explained. “Whenever I want something to eat, I want to. My grandfather used to talk about the kind of freedom he had on one particular day, and the holidays didn’t change his life… neither do I.” If I want to eat, I will eat. If I want to drink, I will drink. It may be my birthday, it may not be.”
Right away, Gabe. Don’t give in to the Big Cake Industrial Complex. keep up the good fight.
