Adebayo Akinfenwa is a legend. The striker is 5’11” and 224 pounds, making him stand out on the pitch and, in video games too, where FIFA lists him as the strongest player in the sport.

So next season when Akinfenwa suits up, he will proudly be wearing Beechdean Ice Cream across his chest. There couldn’t be a better match — the largest person in the sport and ice cream. Sometimes the planets align and the world gives us something better than we could have ever imagined. This is one of those times.
