Tomas Nido, back up catcher of the New York Mets just might be a Norse God in disguise & we haven’t realized it until now. Don’t believe me? Well how do you explain the following…

  • The truth is in his last name and it’s been in front of us this whole time. What do you get when you spell Nido backwards? … ODIN! Yes ladies and gentleman, you heard it here first. Tomas Nido is actually Odin!

  • His number 3 is pretty interesting. Have you ever heard of Valknut? Well it’s a three interconnected triangle symbol that has been said to reflect the connection between Earth, Heaven and Hell, also known as “Odin’s Knot.” The symbol has also been associated with ecstatic Seidr magic, which Odin was a master of!

  • The Marvel universe hinted this to us before and we never noticed it. Remember when Loki banished Odin from Valhalla? Where was Odin banished to? Yup, he was found in New York City! Hmmm…weird coincidence? I THINK NOT! But wait, there’s more! In the scene where both Thor & Loki find Odin in a NYC alleyway a taxi car drives by with the number 555-0133. Why is this important? Well according to baseballreference.com, in 5 seasons, Nido is averaging 55 RBI’s, 0 stolen bases, 1 sacrifice hit (bunt), 3 sacrifice flies and 3 intentional walks!

  • And last but not least we have his first name that we have to break down, Tomas. We’re going to do the same as we did with his last name and spell it backwards and look at the name Samot. What is Samot? It’s actually Odin giving a nod to his two wolves, Geri and Freki. He got this name from a play podcast titled, “Friends at the table.” On this podcast there is a character called Samot who is always associated with wolves!So there you have it, Tomas Nido is the God known as Odin & we never knew about it until now. What made me put the pieces together? It was actually the return of Noah Syndergaard on the horizon. We all know Noah is known to Met fans as Thor and he’s set to return in June and lately, Nido has been hottest Met hitter. It’s because Odin wants to be there for his son Thor when he returns. The better “Nido” plays, more playing time he gets.
