This ‘Curvy’ Sports Fan Is Famous For Just Chilling In The Sun


An overweight fan has become an unlikely internet sensation after stripping off in the stands during a baseball game. 

The, lets say, ‘curvy’, man was seen soaking up the rays with his shirt off during Wednesday’s game between the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Images of the man, who is flanked by empty beer cans and hot dog trays, have been seen around the world, with a news website in Belgium calling him ‘the rather corpulent protagonist’.



His reception in his homeland has been even better, with people dubbing him an ‘American hero’ on social media sites.

Fans have begun searching for the unidentified man and hope to track him down so he can appear on talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live.


The Russian language version of Eurosport even poked fun at the laid-back sports enthusiast for becoming a celebrity by ‘doing nothing’.



They said: ‘His photos immediately broke up on the internet, even though he did not do anything for this.’ In a world obsessed with body image, surely this guy sets a good example of being comfortable in one’s own skin?
