Found this great article over at Forbes about Babe Ruth, based around this photograph that's up for auction at Leland's.

Ruth was a simple guy who loved the ladies, food and baseball, although not necessarily in that order. It seems he was the kind of guy that would sleep with your wife then buy you a beer, and feel bad about it, but not too bad.

I guess the reason he remains a legend isn't just about his stats - he was loved by almost everyone, despite some questionable choices whilst chasing the ladies. He was a big guy with a bigger personality, and when you look at today's highly professional and incredibly dull athletes, a little more personality wouldn't go amiss.

It's a pretty dumb photo though, but I think he was still a big kid at heart.
