Booger McFarland

McFarland then and now
Anthony "Booger" McFarland played eight seasons (1999-2007) as a National Football League lineman for Tampa Bay and Indianapolis, winning a Super Bowl ring with each. The current ESPN employee revealed in an interview on the "Mike and Mike Show" that in those days there was something special on the pre-game locker room buffet table in cold weather.
"When I came into the locker room, you came in, you've got the little food stations, they had the chicken broth, and they had, next to that, the players had brought in a little whiskey. So, I took a little shot of whiskey. ...

"Yeah, the whiskey kinda warmed the inside up. Even though I don't drink ... when you give a shot of kind of firm whiskey, it kinda burns a little bit."
