“I didn’t realize who it was” – sumo Chiyomaru

“He was a catcher or something like that, wasn’t he?” – sumo Tochiozan

 

 

When Derek Jeter said in an interview a few months ago that he was planning to get as far away from baseball as possible for a little while, I think this pretty much covers it!
