Johnny Knoxville in a Swallows Fan Uniform

*Interested in buying a button-down version of this Swallows shirt? Get it in the SHOP

Not really news or anything, but it’s interesting to see who else around the world ‘gets’ the double meaning within the team name.

This time around, it’s Johnny Knoxville showing some love both to the team and his baby boy, Rocco.

With the new Jackass movie to hit theaters soon, it’s clear that Johnny Knoxville is using the dupes at Tsubamegun to help advertise his new movie since Japan doesn’t have much of a talk show circuit to speak of.

More photos here.

No word yet on whether or not Johnny actually likes the team. His agent hasn’t returned any of our calls.

About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo’s more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it’s a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini

    Probably answers the question if he’s a fan or not, but hearing him say that the Swallows is “a way of life” was awesome, nonetheless.

    Does anyone know where I can get one of these jerseys? I really like it.

  • Anton,
    I’m not sure that that specific fan jersey is still available, but we won’t know for sure until the Swallows finish setting up their new online shop sometime next month.

    Here’s the link: http://www.shopswallows.jp/

    Not sure whether or not they’ll ship internationally (for those that are wondering).
