furcalchick Posted April 22, 2008 Share Posted April 22, 2008 most of you probably remember when joe girardi banned facial hair for the marlins and a bunch of people were less than happy with that. now, he's banning his yankees players from eating candy and gum. This is a photograph of an ice cream freezer outside the visitors clubhouse at Camden Yards wrapped up in a blanket so nobody will steal the treats inside. Why is it outside the visitors clubhouse? Because Joe Girardi wants it that way. The Yankees contacted the visiting clubhouse manager of every stadium where they play and asked that the candy and ice cream be removed before the team comes to town. All clubhouses have an assortment of candy, gum, sunflower seeds, ice cream and other goodies. Personally, it never has made sense to me. Why would you provide professional athletes with junk food? The players, of course, arenâ€™t too pleased. Theyâ€™re used to M&Ms and Snickers bars. The clubhouse in Tampa Bay replaced all the candy with nuts, dried fruit and granola. It was hilarious to watch as guys smuggled in candy bars and ate them furtively at their lockers. http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2008/04/19/eat-...hy-play-better/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
