For Pete's Sake

Larry The Cable Guy thinks he sometimes resembles Salvy Perez

Comedian Larry The Cable Guy had an epiphany that may interest Royals fans — and I know, that’s a crazy sentence.

But Larry shared a photo of himself on Twitter and said he kind of looks like Royals catcher Salvador Perez. Not all the time, but when he is going to bed.

Larry shared a photo on Twitter of himself side-by-side with Perez, and this is what he wrote: “Hmm.. this is nuts! I just realized that when I put my snore guard in I kinda resemble ‪@Royals catcher ‪@ELNino_SP13!”

@ELNino_SP13 is the Twitter handle that Perez uses.

You’ve got to wonder how Larry came to this realization. Is he a Royals fan? Well, maybe.

Manager Ned Yost is friends with Jeff Foxworthy, who has done shows with Larry in the past. And Yost also hung out with Foxworth and Larry in Branson, Mo., after the 2015 World Series.

Also: Larry’s real name is Daniel Lawrence Whitney, and he grew up in Nebraska, which means he could have a Royals fan as a kid.
