Joey Votto really broke out of his shell during a funny interview Tuesday with MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” in which he actually dressed as a Canadian Mountie.
Votto has struggled with anxiety and panic attacks during his career and hasn’t always been known as a charismatic, media friendly-guy. But he certainly did some work changing all of that by showing off his personality.
Just hearing him ramble about his horse, “Nibbles,” was pretty hilarious.
And if you’re wondering what the full story is behind the costume, it came about during spring training when “Intentional Talk” Photoshopped a picture of Votto in a Mountie costume into a photo of Chris Rose dressed as Bret Michaels. Votto made that come true in real life.
Well done, Joey. Well done.
