What's In A Name?

I'm not a big baseball fan to begin with, but HOLY COW, how did I miss hearing about this one?!?!
Or maybe I'm just a freak with a perverted mind, and no one else thinks it is weird.

Yesterday, as we were eating dinner, I turned on the Brewers-Cubs game, only because this is a critical stand for the two teams who are 1-2 in their division. I thought I would be seeing some good action. Not so much.

It was the bottom of the fifth inning and things were just about to go from bad to worse for the Brew Crew. So then I see the back of a Cub's jersey as he takes his at-bat. At first I thought it was a joke jersey, but no, it was a real player. And his name is FUKUDOME. No, I am not making this up, it is a real guy!

Oh dear. That's all I can say.

I can't believe you hadn't heard of him before--he's a hero, here in Chicagoland. :)

I'm not a big baseball fan, so I totally missed it. When I saw that name I just about shot soda thru my nose!
