Sure, the Steelers are about to lose another game to their division-leading rivals because of injuries, but Casey Hampton ain’t care. He’s getting another free hot dog!

He’s also ready to deal with their fans at M&T Bank Stadium.

“They tough,” said Hampton. “They talk just as bad as anybody else. I’ve heard every fat thing in the world so that doesn’t bother me too much. Sticks and stones, man, I know I’m fat it ain’t no big deal. There’s one fan, I don’t know his name but we go at it every year. He brings me a hot dog out and everything. He takes care of me. That’s my guy.”

Does Hampton eat the hot dog?

“All the time, no question,” said Hampton. “After the first couple of times seeing there was nothing wrong with it. It’s pretty good. Just plain, before the game I don’t want to upset my stomach too much. I just eat it plain. Usually, I’ll put ketchup and mustard on [a hot dog] though. A little gatorade with it, it’s good.”

Accept an Esskay beef frank from a random Baltimore person who hates you? Probably not the best idea. In other news, Casey Hampton has all the diseases now. And not just the diabeetus.
