An inspiration to fans everywhere. Seriously

I was watching the Devil Rays-Mariners game on FSN Northwest just now (don't ask) when I saw this man, the best real-life approximation of the Woman in White -- Glenn Close's character in The Natural -- that we have. Chewbacca, Sasquatch, Bigfoot, the Cowardly Lion, Freak, whatever you want to call him.... He wore a backwards Beltre jersey, danced this kooky jig, participated in a one-man chant of "We want Beltre" while waving a rolled up poster of some sort and played with a Beltre bobblehead. And when Adrian Beltre came up in a key situation in the bottom of the 8th, he hoisted a big laminated sign that read "I LOVE BELTRE," only "LOVE" was represented by a big red heart.

That man is an inspiration to fans everywhere. I'm still in awe.

Oh, Beltre singled in the go-ahead run, and in the next half-inning made a nifty defensive play for the game's penultimate out.
