Forbidden Love: Daniel Norris

Forbidden Love is a Cubs DNA series where our staff waxes poetic about a player on a team other than the Cubs. Maybe even one you think they should hate. In this installment, Tina blesses us with some Valentine's Week musings on Detroit Tiger's Pitcher, Daniel Norris.

Happy Valentine's Week! I, too, followed in Staci's lead and jumped into the shallow end of the pool to bring you my favorite non-Cubs eye candy, Daniel Norris. Daniel been pretty average in his 6 years: 4.54 ERA/99 ERA+/4.47 FIP/1.407 WHIP. But you don't really care about that today, right?

Cause in the looks department, Daniel is one of the most handsome guys in the MLB (IMHO) and can give Dansby a run for his money in the hair department. What he really has going for him is his fantastic beard and perfect hipster style.

It me. Stalking his Instagram page.

I first read about Daniel when he had successful thyroid cancer surgery at the end of the 2015 season. He posted this pic on his IG page, where I discovered all sorts of fun things about him.

He's a pretty talented photographer. I'm a novice myself and really like his street photography, especially his portraits of homeless people.

He's a free spirit who loves to surf (even if he is originally from Tennessee!) and he lives in a van. He's also an environmentalist and did a nice interview with Patagonia here.

Oh hai, nice guns you have there. Did I ever mention how much I love those undershirts the guys wear?

Continued good health, Daniel. Keep that beard game fierce!
