Watch as a pancake artist turns Southpaw and the White Sox into delicious breakfast food

"Anything you can see, you can theoretically draw as a pancake, and then eat it," says Dan Drake, aka Dr. Dan the Pancake Man. That's a good and tasty way to live life, especially when "anything" includes MLB teams and their mascots.

Dr. Dan was at U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday for Chicago's 3-1 loss to the Royals to render the White Sox in shocking detail, pancake-ifying stars like Jose Abreu and Chris Sale. He also explained why pancake art is a little bit like a "magic trick":
"You have to kind of learn to draw blind a little bit, because you're covering the image up. But then, after it cooks through, you get that moment, where everybody's gathered around and you're like, 'And it's done!'"

This isn't the first time we've seen pancake versions of MLB stars, so perhaps one day, instead of official Spring Training photo day, MLB will have official pancake portrait day. And of course, even former MLB stars could get in on the deliciousness:
