Eric Weddle has a ridiculously unhealthy Ravens win tradition

Eric Weddle is enjoying a fresh lease of life in Baltimore with the Ravens after his long spell with the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers and Weddle had a long, drawn-out breakup that saw the fan favourite leave Qualcomm Stadium due to a series of incidents.

However, Weddle is a Raven now and it looks like he has taken a new habit with him. One that is so incredibly unhealthy that we just had to bring it up.

So, what's Weddle's celebration treat? Ice cream. But not a normal amount. Nope, Weddle smashes down a gallon of the dairy stuff!

“I would think that I consume a full gallon,” Weddle said. “I usually take the first batch of some ice cream, eat it and then about an hour later, at halftime of the Sunday night game, I go after a second serving."

"So I pretty much get a whole gallon of ice cream Sunday night. It’s pretty bad.”

A gallon is too much ice cream, for anyone, even professional athletes. 

On average, a gallon of ice cream contains around 4500 calories. When you add in the Oreos and caramel sauce that gets dripped on top, you're looking at a 5000 calorie snack - which is double what a normal person should eat in an entire day.

Please, do not copy Eric Weddle. He is a professional athlete. All of us are not. 

Anyway, here's what it looks like...
