Wednesday is Hump Day, and here at The Two Man Game, we’ll celebrate every Wednesday with a random picture, quote, or miscellaneous bit of trivia concerning Kris ‘Hump’ Humphries.
Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star in December of 2007:
It’s difficult to protect players from their bad habits. Yesterday Humphries was complaining about how yet another scrum with the media was keeping him from a more attractive destination: the fast-food joint where he intended to procure a delicacy known as The Baconator before a flight to Indianapolis for a game with the Pacers. The club had laid out the usual healthy post-practice buffet for its players in an effort to keep them from just such a dietary choice, but Humphries said he didn’t care for the team-endorsed pork chops.
As such, it’s my understanding that some of Humphries’ cult following have dubbed him “Baconator.” Not bad as far as nicknames go, I must say.
