It's a testament to the immortality of ROLLERBLADING RAPTORS MASCOT that we continue to see him in other GIFs. For instance, several of us saw Kinsler's toe-tap at the end and thought of the Raptor's tail. His handiwork is in all things.

By what system did Avis sponsor this clip? PRESENTING THE AVIS OVERSLIDE FACE SMACKITY-SMACK OF THE GAME BROUGHT TO YOU BY AVIS, THE AUTOMOBILE RENTAL AND FACESMACKIN' DEPOT

Via @bubbaprog. Finished first in Week 36 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 245 votes.

I've included a number of GIFs in THIS WEEK IN GIFs that involve a player putting wicked English on the ball, and every time, soccer fans are all like, "well, that's not that great. That wasn't even the best of the week." But this one is, though, right? Guys? This is cool, right?

Look, y'all, I'm still just a casual enthusiast of this soccer shit. I still think it's neat that they made a Civilization map into a ball, OK? That's where I'm operating from.

VOTE!
