I'm Tired

On my May trip to Detroit for the Motor City Comic Con and a Tigers game, I met a lot of celebrities from many fields. These were generally all planned. One celebrity photo opportunity was unforeseen.
As I meandered around Comerica Park looking for some good food, I ran into the Belle Tire Tireman. How could I pass on this shot?
I guess I would have to put Tireman in the 'Mascot' category, as opposed to the Superhero category, although Tireman would sound like an interesting Superhero. Still, it is clear tht Tireman is a marketing gimmick and has no super powers nor does any saving of the universe.
I don't mean to disrespect Tireman. I am sure Tireman probably does good deeds in his own right.
Tireman did seem happy to see me (just look at that smile). I didn't have a lot of time to talk to him though. The game was about to start and I still needed to get some food. I guess you could say I had to burn rubber. (umm yeah, sorry).
