Watch Joey Votto impersonate LeBron James' patented chalk entrance

(Clair, Michael)

Joey Votto is a multi-talented, wondrous creature. 
He's an MVP winner with some perfectly fitted pants. 

He's the Canadian god of walks, leading the league in bases on balls in four separate seasons. 
He's also, apparently, an expert impersonator. Before taking on Cleveland on Saturday afternoon, Votto made his entrance the way any Ohio hero does. No, not by doing the Ickey Shuffle, but by using LeBron's famous chalk-clap thing. 

Will he pull this one out next time he hits a game-winning home run? Or is he instead going to go down the Frank Caliendo route, eventually winding up with his own TV show?
