Tim Lincecum is full of charisma, and all of his unique personality shined through following his no-hitter against the Padres Wednesday.
Lincecum was handed a “Gladiator” mask by one of his teammates inside the San Francisco Giants’ clubhouse and put it on. The mask coupled with his US men’s soccer team jersey gave him a funny look, but all of that was quickly forgotten once he led his team in the Daniel Bryan “YES” chant.
From Michigan State football to the Giants, it seems like everyone is doing the chant of the popular WWE wrestler these days. Then again, let’s not forget that Hunter Pence showed us last month that the “YES” chant is nothing new the Giants.
It was also cool seeing manager Bruce Bochy lead the team in a toast to Lincecum and thank Big Time Timmy Jim for sparing him when it came to the pitch count. That sure as heck made life easy on him when it came to letting Timmy finish the game.
