Sports teams have their superstitions. I knew a football player in high school who thought putting on his socks a certain way would ensure a win. For Washington Nationals bullpen coach Matt LeCroy, winning is all about a sandwich.
According to the Washington Post, LeCroy needed a little extra something to help give his team a boost. So before every game, he ate a banana and mayonnaise sandwich on white bread.
The thought of creamy mayonnaise and mushy bananas together is enough to make anyone gag, but LeCroy insists it's a winning combo.
"A lot of people were hurting in the beginning, and we needed some big wins so I thought, ‘I gotta go with the banana-and-mayonnaise,’” LeCroy told the Washington Post. "I always ate ‘em and everybody made fun of them."
Whatever you think of the sandwich, the Nationals are on a two-game winning streak.
