Votto With the Most Canadian Trash Talk Ever

It’s becoming more and more common with smartphones: the up-close, in-game athlete/fan interaction caught on video.  We’ve seen it a few times of late and just last week with LeBron James making fun of a fan that was sitting courtside (he made some crack about the dudes shoes).

Last night was mild-mannered Joey Votto’s turn.  Some Cleveland Indians fan was sitting behind home plate and told Joey “I remember when you used to be good.”  Without hesitation Joey barks back “I remember when you used to be thin.”

Here’s the entertaining video:

Joey was very aware of the situation he was in, and stayed reverent.  He knew the camera was pointed at him, and even mentioned the camera while still giving the guy a little trash talk.  It was innocent, yet still funny.  It was very Canadian, and it made me like Joey Votto just a little bit more than I already did.
