I’m two for two in posting this! That’s an accomplishment, especially since I really want to take the off day to stare blindly at my television and taking a pre-bedtime nap.
In any case, we had the Diamondbacks and Rockies this week for our round-up. Just to be completely candid, I was attending most of the games as a spectator so may have missed some key GIFable moments. Regardless, here are the Top 5 I saw this week:
#5. Balldude employs unusual techniques
Here’s the opening day balldude (and friend, Rick Beleson – hey Rick!) using his entire body to get in the way of this ball. Hey, go big or go home, amirite?
#4. Angel Pagan welcomes a small child in a big t-shirt
Just let your heart melt away, into the floor. My favorite Sunday tradition brings us this GIF of Pagan welcoming this adorable child wearing a ginormous t-shirt:
#3 Brandon Crawford Bat Drop
You don’t drop a bat like Crawford unless you know that baby is GONE, and man, was it ever. This splash-hit 10th inning walk-off home run deserved this Grade-A bat drop:
#2. Madison Bumgarner post-grand slam snot rocket
Madison Bumgarner hit a grand slam like a total boss, and the first thing he does? Blows his signature snot rocket. Ain’t no thang.
#1. Buster Posey IS America
This footage is snagged from opening day but they played it back during yesterday’s broadcast and well, it’s the most god-damn American thing I’ve ever seen. I want to join the army or something. Does anyone else want to join the army?
As always, tips, suggestions, and favorite GIFs are welcome in the comments section. Thanks for checking this out!
