BEYOND URGENT: Masahiro Tanaka wore surgical mask to airport
The New York Post is absolutely on the case when it comes to odd things Masahiro Tanaka wears to airports.
Please do let me share with you the following somewhat breathless New York Post headline regarding Yankees import Masahiro Tanaka and the possible beast within:
If there is not a nearby mountaintop from which to bellow this news, then you shall build a mountaintop from which to bellow this news: For Masahiro Tanaka wore a surgical mask to the this, our airport!
From the linked dispatch:
Tanaka wore the mask as he headed to the aircraft, while Satoda [his wife] could be seen tottering to it on high heels holding a pink dog carrier with Tanaka’s brown toy poodle, Haru, inside.
It wasn’t clear what plane they were taking.
Whether Mr. Tanaka is merely over-cautious with regard to stinky germs or whether he is a secret globetrotting physician with vials of poison in his gadget-belt is not clear.
