Automatic bid. Finished first in Week 20 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 352 votes.

Months after I first saw it, this guy still amazes me. There's a 10-foot wall immediately to his left that I'm pretty sure he can't see through, which means he probably had 0.3 seconds of warning that a baseball was flying directly at his face. And yet, he snags it with the nonchalance of a frog snapping a fly out of the air. Oh, bullpen catcher, you are the bullpen catchest of them all.

WADE BOGGS.

Oh, so you want to party with Wade Boggs? Your night will involve some permutation of the following:

  • Dancin' on camera at a Thunder game, almost certainly to the "y'all ready for this" song
  • Cruisin' around the interstate in a 1990 Eagle Talon, listening to Kenny G's "Breathless" at a modest volume
  • Watchin' "Throw Momma From The Train" on Laserdisc
  • Installin' a new garage door opener
  • Eatin' a Toaster Strudel
  • Gatherin' around his IBM-compatible, playin' a few rounds of You Don't Know Jack
  • Grabbin' some Pledge, polishin' his answerin' machine
