If the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) ever starts a PETA-style celebrity campaign, Tim Lincecum would be a perfect pitchman. He looks like a stoner, talks like a stoner, has a stoner nickname (“The Freak”), and judging by the misdemeanor pot charge he picked up in November 2009, probably is a straight up hardcore stoner. And funny enough, just like everyone on this list: he’s really, damn good at the sport he plays. In his first four full seasons in the majors, Lincecum’s logged more than 200 innings each year, and led the National League in strikeouts three times. He’s done it all with a frame many scouts considered too small for a power pitcher, and with an unorthodox delivery that many of those same scouts thought would lead to injury. Think an occasional puff has anything to do with his prowess? Interesting stuff.
