#NachoMan: An Origin Story Too Cheesy To Believe (… And I Was Just Fired for that Title)

Baseball Is Fun

Every superhero has an origin story … but not every origin story is super.

#NachoMan, for example, is the latest superhero to enter our world, but he wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider or jettisoned off his home planet as it was being destroyed, and his parents don’t like the opera.

No, #NachoMan is just a simple guy who loves baseball, the Cardinals, and a cup filled with cheese drizzled over some crunchy tortilla chips.

He also happened to be in the wrong (right?) place at the wrong (right?) time with a fresh order of nachos from Busch Stadium, as the Cubs took on the Cardinals last night. Take a look as Cubs shortstop Addison Russell goes barreling into the stands to retrieve a foul ball and comes out with only nachos and a great story:

Always keep two hands on the nachos – it’s just fundamentals! pic.twitter.com/Fjnqd4CJNj

I love how Russell goes back with nachos from the field, and hands them to #NachoMan before shaking his hand and taking a selfie with him/his girlfriend. That’s just too funny.

Let’s just hope he washed his hand before shaking it …

Some more images/tweets from the “event:”

#NachoMan was even interviewed later:

And was asked to sign some fan’s chest … in cheese:

And lastly, if you can believe it, he even grabbed another foul ball later in the game, before tossing it to some kids:

I guess some heroes really don’t wear capes.
