At first glance reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich's new walk-up music may not set off any alarms. "Roxanne" by The Police off of 1978's Outlandos d'Amour. Perhaps Yeli is just paying homage to a certain wannabe blogger from Rhode Island's go to karaoke song? #roxanneguy Or maybe this is one of the best subtle troll jobs my goldfish brain can think of in recent memory.
To paint a picture for you, Christian Yelich is going to have his naked (picture) in the ESPN The Magazine Body Issue. Tastefully, of course. You know? The same magazine that gave us these same unforgettable images.
I couldn't sworn the magazine was coming to an end. It turns out I was right! After some quick wiki-search mid sentence it my inner thoughts were confirmed; this is going to be the final Body Issue of ESPN The Magazine. ESPN the Mag will cease production in September. Making this moment by Yeli even more historic.
Tuesday morning Yeli had to tell a certain Roxane just how-he-feel.
Tuesday night he doubled down on Roxanne the best way possible.
I mean how can you not love this? It's completely harmless and absolutely hilarious. Yelich has shown he has a personality and likes to have fun. He's not gonna let some maga mom dictate what he does. I love this so much. He didn't go super hard at her on twitter. He wasn't a dick, even though he totally could've been. Instead the dude just had some fun with the situation. Something we all need to do more.
