Meat Loaf: Meat. I've always been called Meat, my whole life, ever since I was a baby. My teachers, everybody called me Meat.
Meat Loaf: No, I swear. It's true. 1b. C'mon. You're making it up.
Meat Loaf: Yeah, I am. But don't tell anybody. And I really did play with Chili. 2. Who's your favorite team?
Meat Loaf: The Yankees. They were owned by CBS and Mickey Mantle was from Oklahoma so every Saturday the game of the week in Dallas was the Yankees. So I grew up rooting for them and hating everybody else.
Meat Loaf: No way. Too many guys. You've got Bernie Williams and Derek Jeter and Ellis Burks. And then you've got the guys I know like Jason Giambi and Troy Glaus and Tim Salmon. There are just too many. 4. Which superpower would you most want, the ability to fly, turn invisible or have the strength of 100 men?
Meat Loaf: Oh, turn invisible. But don't ask me why. 4a. Why invisible?
Meat Loaf: I would turn invisible and sneak into the locker rooms of the Super Bowl teams and the World Series winners and see what it was like. I know what locker rooms most people would sneak into. The girls' locker rooms, to check them out. But I'd go into the football locker rooms and listen to what they're saying. Wouldn't that be great? I'd love to have been in there for the Super Bowl and listen to what John Madden told the Raiders. 5. We hear you're a big fantasy league guy. How serious do you take your team?
Meat Loaf: I once had a $10,000 phone bill calling back to the states when I was on tour. That was back in the days before the Internet and stuff and it was the only way I could stay connected with what was going on. 6. What's your favorite sports movie?
Meat Loaf: It wasn't a broadcast, we had Rizzuto do it for us in the studio. We listened to Rizzuto all summer and wrote up all his expressions into a script and had him come into the studio. But he was real flat when he did it. So I had to run around the studio like I was circling the bases. 8. You played in the celebrity-legend softball game at the All-Star Game. How many games have you played now?
Meat Loaf: I think that was the fourth. 9. Are you a celebrity or a legend?
Meat Loaf: Neither, man. 10. If you could go back and see any game in history, which game would it be?
Meat Loaf: The Ice Bowl between the Packers and Cowboys. Only it would be too damn cold in Green Bay, so I would have them move it to Florida. Send this story to a friend | Most sent stories
