Jimmy Fallon dresses like a White Sox fan on The Tonight Show

The Chicago White Sox are no strangers to pop culture. In fact, they’re so popular in a movie that Major League Baseball made them host the New York Yankees for the movie. Now, on Monday, they’ve been introduced to the game show thanks to Tonight’s Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!

The Tonight Show has a segment called “Screen Grabs” where people send in images to react. Someone sent in a picture of a White Sox fan who looked a bit like Jimmy Fallon. He had a beer helmet, a mustache and a White Sox sweatshirt in the photo.

Jimmy Fallon put on the exact same outfit and did a side-by-side with it. It was a glorious moment in television if you ask any White Sox fan. Seeing our team in the spotlight like that, sports show or not, is always great. The Tonight Show was one of the most popular late-night shows in television history, so it was huge.

Of course, Fallon himself is no stranger to baseball. Before succeeding Jay Leno as permanent host of The Tonight Show, he was a film actor as well as a comedian (Saturday Night Live). He co-starred in “Fever Pitch,” a romantic comedy centered on the Boston Red Sox in 2004.

It was a great story that showed how powerful baseball can be in life and in love. He plays a die-hard Red Sox fan named Ben Wrightman who falls in love, causing conflict as he tries to balance his baseball with his life. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should.

Seeing the Chicago White Sox on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was so much fun.

We later found out that Fallon is actually a real-life Yankees fan, which is a shame, but that’s what it is. Now, sports teams usually only appear on The Tonight Show if they’ve won something or are involved in something big. For the White Sox, it was just because it looked like fun to be part of that case.

All White Sox fans enjoyed the spotlight. Even the main White Sox Twitter account engaged with it, thanking Jimmy for hanging out with them. With something as big as The Tonight Show, it’s a really fun way to help grow the team’s brand and the game of baseball in general. Who wouldn’t want to drink beers in a helmet while enjoying a White Sox baseball game?

Hopefully Major League Baseball can end the lockdown soon so we can create more baseball related content like this. We all want to enjoy the game and the company it brings. Seeing this segment was just a small smile offered to fans during the cold winter.
