"The way I left New York I left in a good way," Cano told Fallon. "I'll hopefully get a good standing ovation. But if its not I'm going to have fun. I'm still going to have some love for the New York fans, for all those years I was here. They were so patient and so kind to me, and I really want to thank them for that."

A standing ovation might be tough to muster. What Cano did produce, however, was a very entertaining man-on-the-street bit, which shows how fans might not always respond the way they say they will.

Cano left New York after signing a 10-year, $240 million contract with Seattle. He will be one of Fallon’s guests on the Monday night show, which airs at 11:30 p.m.
