Sports stars – they are like us.

The baseball world, and indeed the entire sports world, was captivated by the pursuit of free agent Shohei Ohtani.

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

Us too, Joey. We know the feeling.

Remember how the two-time MVP celebrated his latest award with an adorable dog with a mysterious name?

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

Gavin Lux woke up to exciting news from the Dodgers' newest star.

Remember retired reliever Trevor Hildenberger?

Let's just say the right one hasn't forgotten his one performance vs. Ohtani.

Kiké Hernandez is looking for help.

2022 NL Rookie of the Year Michael Harris II was speechless.

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

The news was so big that Hall of Famer and longtime Angels great Vladimir Guerrero congratulated Ohtani in two languages.

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

And then Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Watt's position.
