Bartolo Colon Hitting His First Career Home Run Is The Inspiration You Need
Anything is possible. Don't believe me? At the age of 42-years old, walking bowl of porridge Bartolo Colon hit his first career home run. He took the impossible, and made it happen.
Colon isn't the portrait of athleticism. Despite his portly build and pear shaped body, Colon is still performing for the New York Mets in his 18th season as a pro. "Big Sexy" is proving that beauty comes in different forms, and he's still climbing mountains in his baseball career.
Typically, Colon's at bats are filled with awkward, flailing attempts at the ball. On the fateful day of May 7th, in the year 2016, Bartolo Colon did the impossible. He crushed a ball over the wall, defying all logic.
If Bartolo Colon can hit a home run, you can climb mountains, wrestle alligators and find a cure for cancer. Be like Big Sexy. Crack life's fruits open and drink the sweet nectar.
If that wasn't enough awesome for you, here's the Spanish broadcast from WEPN.

He hit him with "hasta la vista, baby." He'd been holding onto that one for a while.
Let 42-year old, out of shape Bartolo Colon be your daily inspiration. If he can hit a home run, you can conquer the world.
