VIDEO: Robinson Cano surprises some Yankees fans in “Tonight Show” skit

Apr 29, 2014, 12:34 AM EDT

Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano was a guest on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon this evening as he prepares to make his return to Yankee Stadium tomorrow night. It was pretty awesome.

In addition to sitting down for an interview with Fallon, Cano participated in a skit on the streets of New York where he surprised Yankees fans who thought they were merely booing a cardboard cutout of him. Check it out below:

Brilliant. It’s almost as if booing another human being is downright strange when you aren’t in the confines of a sports venue.

    Brilliant way to return to New York by Cano. Brilliant.

    That is just fantastic.

    I am a Yankees fan, but that was pretty damn funny. The white guy was the best. Oh umm I won’t boo you. Umm just hope for you to have a good game but lose lol.

      The last guy was pretty hilarious, too – especially since he was wearing a Miami Marlins hat.

    It’s so much easier to hate people when they’re not in front of you.

      I dunno, some people are more likeable from a distance…

    hope he goes 4 for 4 and homers 2 times to rub it in

  7. bronx77 - Apr 29, 2014 at 4:03 AM

    It would be funny if he hit two homers because then cano might think hmm it took 4 at bats to hit two homers in New York and almost a whole month to hit one for the mariners….. Right decision?

    This is fantastic! Anyone else find it funny when the one fan was mad because Cano left for more money?

    @Kevin S.

    He was not wearing a Miami Marlins hat.
    The “M” clearly does not look like the Marlins “M”. -_- pretty obvious

      You sure about that? I thought it looked like that stupid new design Loria rolled out when he moved into Boondoggle Stadium.

    You know what sucks? I bet there were people who, when asked if they would boo Cano, said “Nah, Robbie’s a good player and a stand-up guy. Lots of players follow the money to New York, so I can’t blame him for taking the $240 million payday. I hope his team loses whenever they play the Yankees, but I’m not going to boo him.” And then the producers are like, “Uh, okay, thanks, move along…” and those people didn’t get to meet Robinson Cano.

      I’ll go even further – it probably took 5 hours to find enough IDIOTS who would begrudge someone the opportunity to take a job offer elsewhere for more money….like everyone else in the world has the right to do that EXCEPT professional athletes……just seems ridiculous to me.

    Yankees fans booing someone because they left for the money, oh the irony.

    All interent trolls should be required to watch this. This is spot-on.
