Rule of Advertisement #241: You can sell anything to men unless you call it a girdle.

I'm not a fanatic about baseball: but didn't Babe Ruth have a big belly?

The first thought that crosses my mind when considering sport equipment is to look in the advertizing section of a comic book.

How ridiculous. Yeah BMN, Babe Ruth was a fat guy and he smoked cigars too.
