This is extremely bizarre to me.
There were two fans in Anaheim dressed up as Ichiro, one wearing a Mariners uniform, the other sporting Yankees duds.
They were such an attraction in the outfield that fans were even having their pictures taken with them.
That’s weird enough. But check out what they did when Ichiro went into the outfield late in the game.
They started doing Ichiro’s stretching routine.
So these guys decided one day that they needed to have a thing. And they decided that their thing would be impersonating Ichiro.
Not just dressing up like Ichiro, but mirroring his stretching moves too.
That’s crossing the line from fan devotion into stalker territory, if you ask me.
If I’m Ichiro, I’m putting on extra security. Getting a guard dog. Installing a security camera near my garbage.
These guys seem like exactly the type of people who would root around in a man’s trash in search of discarded underwear.
Not because of some weird underwear fetish, but to complete the illusion.
