TOMMY HUNTER.

Received 678 votes in Round 1.

The whole point of the gif is the endless repetition of some kind of motion. He is completely, absolutely, perfectly still. He’s the anti-gif gif.

He’s looking… right… at… the camera….

It is the superior gif since it has both rising action, a twist, a climax, and denoument.

You think, “Oh, maybe this dude is gonna make an awesome catch or fall down or something. Oh, a home run. Ha! DUDE DIDN’T MOVE WHAT A PIMP.”

JOE MORGAN.

Received 579 votes in Round 1.

I like how we extol the accomplishments of one man here instead of writing this one off as “Damn it, Buccaneers.”

I’ve shown that GIF to more people in the last month than Joe Morgan had catches after this one.
