Hey, beer man

If you've been on the first base side of Baltimore's Camden Yards, you've seen Clancy the beer man.
The NPR story on his career features photos from old Memorial Stadium, where he worked the same side of the field starting in 1974.
"I used to move quicker than a lot of the other vendors, because I was a sprinter in college," he says. "And another thing: You know I had the gift of gab. And I used to do rhymes so that helped me out."
One of his favorites?
"Hey! Empty your pockets, put your money in your hand, cuz here's Clancy, your beer man!"
