so much going on [in a previously defeated Pat Riley GIF]
but not a single thing in it as good as a ricochet off a d*** into a ladies face. Nor was anything as good as a child using his glove as a shield instead of as a glove. The better gif won, sir.

Buck is going all the way. No contest.

I have a feeling Showalter is an unstoppable monster in this tourney. Getting ignored is one thing. Completing the ignored handshake is another thing. Throwing in a fist bump to no one is a third thing.

That's three things.

the Showalter gif is just so... baseball
It distills the game down to its essence - an old guy wearing a full uniform (including cap) and like a 90s starter jacket failing at a high five, like not just missing the other guy's hand but completely not on the same page.
