This fan follows Tim Lincecum around the country and wants to smell his hair -- but claims she's not a stalker

First off, Tami Veralund wants everyone to know she’s not a stalker.

The Seattle native has become a fan of the San Francisco Giants in recent seasons, mostly because she can't get enough of Tim Lincecum. When she gets the chance, Veralund flies around the country to watch the right-hander pitch.

She was in Denver on Wednesday to see The Freak at Coors Field, sitting behind the Giants dugout with her "55" placards -- and hoping to get a whiff of Lincecum's hair or maybe gift him a plate of cookies.

But again, not a stalker.
