Celeb Jersey Cards #57 Hank Azaria & Matt Dillon

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs.

There isn't a whole lot of success for Chicago baseball teams this year.  Therefore, to share in the misery, I am featuring celebs representing another underachieving team.
Who is better to showcase underachieving than Homer J. Simpson?  Unfortunately, I didn't have any pictures of Dan Castellaneta wearing a jersey, so I went with Hank Azaria (who voices Chief Wiggum, Moe, Apu and a lot of others, but not Homer as I previously reported).  Actually, Azaria is an accomplished actor.  He is also a native New Yorker and a Mets fan.  I think he might even be able to land a spot coming out of the bullpen in long relief.
Matt Dillon is another native New Yorker.  Dillon enjoyed success as a teenager and has been a solid actor since.  Dillon donned the #7 when he threw out a first pitch.  Was the #7 for current Mets shortstop Jose Reyes?  I prefer to go old school and say it was for longtime Mets player Ed Kranepool.  I think Dillon would be that kind of player.

Um...Hank does not voice Homer!

You are correct. How did I blow that one? It has been corrected and you receive 5 Johngy points (redeemable for merchandise at the upcoming but date undetermined Johngy Fest)!
