    Apparently Thor decided there will be no more walks or HR.

    I hate that nickname so much. His last name is Danish, not Norwegian.

    Danes had a Viking culture and had the same pantheon.

    The Danes owned Norway for hundreds of years... though I'm pretty sure it has more to do with the Marvel character than Norse mythology.

    I don't think it has anything to do with his name or heritage. It's the fact that he's a tall, strong man with flowing golden locks that throws a 100 mph fastball.

    I don't care, it's cringey af

    But I'd guarantee no one is calling him Thor if his last name was Jones or Smith.

    Why wouldn't they?

    If he was 6'0 with short brown hair and the same last name and skill set, I guarantee no one would call him Thor.

    FFS, the Norse god Thor has red hair and a beard. He's clearly nicknamed after the comic book character. This has nothing to do with anyone's heritage.

    Guys, I'm pretty sure they call Syndergaard Thor for more than one reason.

    - his name sounds Norse (even if it isn't)
    - he looks like Chris Hemsworth sort of
    - he is really big and athletic, like a god
    - he has a 'hammer' curveball
    - he is essentially a pitching god

    your all dum
