Munenori Kawasaki is JapaAANNEEEEEEYEESSSS!!!!!!!

Munenori Kawasaki is an international treasure. He is the kind of person UNESCO names a world heritage site. He has graced the sport of baseball like a meteorite of majesty and has pebbled our humble earth with GIF, video clip, and quote in his beautiful contrail.

On Sunday, Muni went 3-for-5 with a game-winning, walkoff double against the Baltimore Nonemploying-Kawasakis. A cadre of Toronto Kawasakis met Kawasaki in the middle of the field, and Cananada’s Torontoist city stirred and sparkled with the glory of Muni. For some reason, the television crew elected to interview Kawasaki utilityman Mark DeRosa instead of Kawasaki shortstop and game-winner Munenori Kawasaki.

But DeRosa knew. He had seen the glimmering majesty.

How do we throw enough collective thanks to World Series Dreaming for this beautiful nugget of beautiful?

    NotGraphs writers pray every night that Munenori Kawasaki stays in the majors so they can come up with awesome content like this without even trying.

    Cistulli is currently tweaking Jose Reyes’ hamstring, or perhaps, twisting his ankle.

    I’ve been watching this interview a lot in the last day, and it cracks me up every time that he takes the microphone from the interviewer. As luck would have it, my team is playing the Kawasakis this weekend, and I am going to the game on Friday just to see what hijinx he has planned next.
