Best Athlete Ambassador 

Jim Thome

If athletes really looked like the cities they played for, we'd have a whole team of Thomes. A bear's shoulders, meaty mitts, and power belly -- just like the steelworkers we know. Thome makes millions swatting baseballs, but he offered to take a pay cut to stay in Cleveland. What in the name of Shawn Kemp is with this guy? Add to that his marriage to a weather babe and his appreciation for canned alcohol; Mr. Thome, we doff our cap to you.
