It’s beer day today, I guess. Well, every day is beer day if you’re living your life properly, but here’s our second beer-related story in a row.
It’s from NPR StoryCorps and it’s about a vendor for the Baltimore Orioles named Clarence Haskett who goes by the nickname “Fancy Clancy.” Haskett has slung concessions for the Orioles for 42 years and, according to the article, “he has sold more than a million beers.”
He also treats his job like a sport itself:
If you’ve really watched these folks work, you know he’s right and you know just how hard and fast a good vendor hustles. The more they sell the more they make.
A cool part of the game we never see. At least until we’re thirsty.
