Actually, Mr. Incredible is an appropriate nickname for Jim.

Every time I see Thome in the dugout with his hat off, I can't help but see this...

He remminds me of a cross between a heavy Steve McQueen and Popeye

To me just looks like a large framed beast of a man that happens to be a "good old boy" from Peoria. :o:

I always thought Thome resembled Captain Sternn from the animated movie Heavy Metal. :cool:

I saw that movie many times in college and couldn't name one character...I wonder why???

:cool:

I too was that way for a long time [though I didn't attend college until later in life -lol]

Woah good call! That movie is messed up.

Watching Heavy Metal wasn't as enjoyable when Thome was a Cleveland Indian. Now that he's one of the Good Guys, I think I'll play it on the VCR this evening.

I haven't seen Jim interviewed yet, but are lips lips really out of sync almost looking like they belong to someone else when he talks? :wink:

I never noticed his lips looking out of sync... but if you've seen an interview with him... YOU KNOW what he says too much. :tongue:

He kind of reminds me of that Cleveland Indian slugger who used to pound the White Six a few years back. :?:

I've pointed this out before, but he resembles that pic someone here has of a guy in an old Sox uni being squeezed by a bear. Looks a lot like him to me.

If you shave the beard & look at them from a distance he looks like Bagwell's mirror image on the left side. Same bone size, build, & height size I think.

Movie wise: The Terminator. I think they stand eye to eye.

In fact I can even imagine Thome in that role for T4.

Off topic but how bout this bunch for Thome's followers, and even a Thome's Homies Day.

I think Thome might have 4 to 5 inches on Bags

I always thought he looked like a giant chicken when he played for Cleveland. But now that he's changed sides, I'm starting to see the Mr. Incredible resemblance more and more.... :D:

When I watch him step up to the plate I see something completely different.
It's as though I'm watching a newsreel from the 1930's.
It's difficult to explain, but his whole approach reminds me of how players took an at bat several generations ago. . .

What? He runs really really fast in black and white? :D:
