    If you live in Wisconsin, you are legally required to consume foods covered in cheese in large amounts. Because of that, it's no surprise a member of the Milwaukee Brewers just set a record for most cheesesteaks consumed at Citizens Bank Park.

    Bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel emerged as both the hero we deserve, and the hero we need Thursday. During the team's four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, Hanel ate an astounding 23 cheesesteaks. 

    Hanel actually broke a couple of cheesesteak records. Through three games, Hanel had consumed 18 cheesesteaks, breaking the three-day record set by New York Mets bullpen catcher Eric Langill. 

    Miami Marlins pitcher Mat Latos held the four-day record with 18, but Hanel blew past that before Thursday's game even started. 

    The Brewers even captured the glorius event for all to see.
