In Athens, Georgia, obviously, by a man — a professional — known to the FanGraphs community as “Fattinton_Bear,” one of our many award-winning correspondents in the field.
Now, immediately, I know what you’re thinking: That can’t be Ken Griffey Jr.’s van. But, look, here’s my point, and please, hear me out: It probably is.
Either that’s Ken Griffey Jr.’s van, or there’s another Ken Griffey Jr. out there. And, frankly, I’d never given any thought as to whether that’s actually possible; that another Ken Griffey Jr., another Kid, exists. Until now.
Join me in thinking about it: How strange would it be to go through life as the other Ken Griffey Jr.?
Obviously, we had to get to the bottom of this. And when Ken Griffey Jr. was reached for comment about the van, via text message, he replied, almost immediately:
When the Griffey Jr.’s van’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’ =P
We, the NotGraphs Investigative Reporting Investigation Team, responded:
Told you it was his van.
Thanks for the hot tip, Fattinton_Bear.
