Munenori Kawasaki, the backup infielder for the Toronto Blue Jays, is a fan favourite. His English is limited, but he always seems to say the right things. He is one of those players that brings energy and fun into the game. He is always joking around, and the reporters always want to speak to him.
In 2013 he snuck in with the reporters and asked his team mate, Esmil Rogers a question. The reaction from Rogers proves how important it is to have fun while playing sports.
Here he tells a reporter a joke.
Here is a clip of just a few of his funny moments
After the Toronto blue Jays got into the MLB playoffs for the first time in 22 years, Kawasaki spoke those infamous words.
The Blue Jays have been on a tear this year.
They lost the first 2 games at home, and then won the next 2, must win games in Texas to shift the series home to Toronto for the final, and deciding game.
Tonight the Blue Jays pulled off an almost impossible feat. They became only the third team in history to lose the first 2 games in a MLB playoff series at home, and then win the next 3 to win the series. The win came after the craziest inning of baseball I have ever seen. 58 minutes long!! An error by the catcher that caused a run to be scored against the Jays. The pissed off fans did not agree with the call and threw beer cans on the field. (I was embarrassed to be a Blue Jay fan at that moment), 2 bench clearing brawls (luckily no punches thrown), and 3 errors in the bottom half of the inning by the Rangers infield. Crazy inning indeed.
I had a feeling when Bautista was coming up to bat that it was his time. I yelled as loud as I did in 1993 when they won it all. I then cried tears of joy. I have never cried that much over a sporting event.
Let`s see that home run one more time. Turn it up.
Bush Party Tonight. You deserve it.
