Joey Votto becomes an American citizen
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Cincinnati Reds First Baseman Joseph Daniel Votto is officially an American citizen.
Technically he has been since January, according to a post from Votto’s newly created and highly entertaining Instagram account. (See below)
The 38-year-old Canadian appears to have posed for a picture with the judge who certified his citizenship, showcasing Votto’s wide-eyed embrace of his new country.
Less fortunate have been Votto’s Reds, mired in a seven-game losing streak (four against the juggernaut Dodgers, mind you) during which they’ve led for all of eight pitches.
The streak further clarifies how ill-advised were these comments made on Opening Day by Reds President and COO Phil Castellini.
But Votto’s social media presence—and fledgling dual citizenship—are welcome distractions.
