Sports stars — they’re just like us.

The baseball world and, in fact, the entire sports world has been captivated by Shohei Ohtani’s free-agent pursuit.

Let’s start with six-time All-Star Star Joey Votto:

Us too, Joey. We know the feeling.

Remember how the two-time MVP celebrated his latest accolade with the adorable dog with the mystery name?

Ohtani’s new teammate Walker Buehler has a question about the four-legged creature.

Gavin Lux woke up to some exhilarating news from the Dodgers’ newest star.

Remember retired reliever Trevor Hildenberger?

Let’s just say, the righty didn’t forget his one appearance vs. Ohtani.

Kiké Hernandez is looking for some assistance.

2022 NL Rookie of the Year Michael Harris II didn’t have any words.

Dodgers part owner and Los Angeles sports legend Magic Johnson was thrilled with Ohtani’s decision to come on board.

Former NFL great JJ Watt was almost at a loss for words.

And then Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes piggy-backed on Watt’s post.
