Before this postseason started, I knew that Shane Victorino was from Hawaii and that he was fast. Over the past two series, it's become clear that he is the spark plug of a Philadelphia Phillies team that looks very capable of winning the World Series. He's an exciting player to watch, and his recent power surge had added yet another dimension to his dynamic game.
But not everyone is a fan of Victorino.
"After finding out Victorino's favorite food is SPAM musubi, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' Assistant Director Dan Shannon sent him a letter, calling for him to give up SPAM because its maker Hormel is under an animal cruelty investigation.What is spam musubi, you ask?
"Spam musubi is a very popular snack and luncheon food in Hawaii made in the tradition of Japanese onigiri, also known as a musubi. A Spam musubi is composed of a block of salted (not vinegared; that would be sushi) rice with a slice of Spam (cooked or uncooked) on top, and typically nori (dried seaweed) surrounding it to keep it in shape. It is the favorite food of Hawaiian baseball player Shane Victorino.Sounds gross, but if it made me play like Shane, I'd eat it for every meal.
