(8) DANCIN' KEVIN DURANT vs.
(9) STUMBLIN' CHEIN-MING WANG.
(8) Hi! I am DANCIN' KEVIN DURANT.
Special nomination. Has not previously appeared in THIS WEEK IN GIFs.
Jon committed the unforgivable sin of not placing me on the Week 13 ballot. Luckily, you folks argued my case in the comments, so he had no choice but to include me in this tournament.
Both Kevin Durant and Tyson Chandler are doing the same leg-kick thing, so that must be a Thing of some sort. It very well may be this summer's version of the Dougie or something. I have no clue, because it's been years since I've kept up with what's cool and what people are doing. I turn on the radio and expect to hear Fenix TX. That's where I'm at.
(9) Oh, hello. I am STUMBLIN' CHEIN-MING WANG.
Via The Score. Special nomination. Has not previously appeared in THIS WEEK IN GIFs.
As we all know, a lot of people play baseball but nobody is any good at it. Take, for example, Chein-Ming Wang here. He fell down, which is often what happens when you play a sport that you and everyone else is bad at.
But he couldn't even fall down the right way! All he has to do is make bodily contact with the base. He is stumbling toward the ground. The base is on the ground. What, was he planning on bending down and tagging the base with his glove? If you had to do that, baseball would be a very different sport, but baseball tagging follows electrical-conductivity logic that allows you to just touch the base with your foot.
Holy shit. This might be the wrongest play in the history of baseball.
