GIF TOURNAMENT II -- FIRST ROUND
MORTIFIED MICHIGAN PUNTER REGION
(7) MOISES SIERRA RUNS THROUGH STOP SIGN vs.
(10) GINOBILI/HARDEN DOUBLE-FLOP
(7) Hi, I am RUN THROUGH STOP SIGN.
Special nomination. Has not previously appeared in THIS WEEK IN GIFs.
You are currently witnessing one of the four runs scored in Moises Sierra's major-league career.
Poor third base coach Brian Butterfield. If you're any other member of the coaching staff, the players have to listen to you. If you're a pitcher who doesn't heed the pitching coach's advice, the manager's going to come around and ask you what's up. Even the first base coach gets listened to most of the time.
But the third base coach? He coaches in binary. Stop or go. And often, that coaching is completely ignored without any real consequences. He's the toggle switch on the coin-operated fire truck outside the K-Mart.
I love how he doesn't even turn his head. Well after Sierra has passed him, he's still throwin' up the "no dice" sign. Just in case anyone else gets any wise ideas, I guess.
(10) Hi! I am GINOBILI-HARDEN DOUBLE-FLOP!
Automatic bid. Won Week 4 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 214 total votes.
Thank God for GIFs. Without them, we'd see moments like these only once, because the TV doesn't tend to dwell on them. This way, they're preserved forever, and a dumb-looking act that was meant to fall into obscurity gets played over and over and over. Poor Tim Duncan. He looks so bewildered.
