It’s been well documented that both Tim Lincecum and the city he plays in, San Francisco, take a pretty liberal stance on marijuana. Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton reported smelling marijuana in the stands during Game 1 of last year’s World Series and Lincecum, himself, has been busted for possession. Big Time Timmy-Jim even hoped for smoke in the air in San Fran during his post game interview following the Giants’ World Series win. Check out this video via Deadspin, in which a guy who claims not to be Lincecum, but undeniably looks like him, offers the ride of your life:
I don’t know whether or not this is Lincecum. Just looking at the face and hair it seems like it has to be him, but the joint in his right hand makes me skeptical. I don’t doubt Lincecum is still smoking — I’d bet he is — but I find it hard to believe he would make this video with the joint being so obvious. Of course, the people of San Francisco proudly sport their “Let Jimmy Smoke” T-shirts and light-up in the outfield, so maybe The Freaky Franchise is following suit. In any case, if this is a look-a-like, he looks much closer to the real thing than the guy impersonating Pau Gasol.
