Just prior to the release of Captain America: Civil War, someone released a special Avengers: Age of Syndergaard preview showing off that lighting arm of his.
Apparently that inspired Noah to dress as Thor and take to the streets of Manhattan.
That’s exactly what Syndergaard did in a recent video for SportsNet New York.
The 23-year-old pitcher went out with the intention of engaging with some fellow New Yorkers, but quickly learned that he’s a much better troll than a friendly communicator.
I’m glad Syndergaard opted to go with the battle helmet, unlike Chris Hemsworth in the movies (that bastard!). It shows he’s concerned about falling objects, which is important when walking around NYC.
I went into the above video fully expecting Syndergaard to be some bland professional athlete, but was pleasantly surprised. He’s not afraid to make fun of people and point out the obvious (like why the hell were there two Elmos?). Now, hopefully he can apply that same effort toward holding baserunners.
