When it comes to Robinson Cané, hell hath no fury like a New York Yankees fan scorned … to a point.
On Tuesday, Cané returns to Yankee Stadium for the first time since trading his pinstripes for a 10-year contract with the Seattle Mariners. In response, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon sought out Yankee fans’ reactions to a cutout of their former second baseman.
In the video, Cané’s cardboard face is subjected to one of New York City’s most popular exports: attitude. Boos rain down without mercy – until the target himself suddenly steps forward.
In the end, it’s the guy in the Mariners gear who gets the last laugh. Face to face with the star, Cané’s critics quickly become starry-eyed admirers.
