GIF: Martin Maldonado Voodoo Blessings

Last night, Brewers infielder Taylor Green hit his first major league homerun.

Green’s current Brewers teammate (and longtime minor league teammate) catcher Martin Maldonado — who also recently hit his first big league homer — was, maybe, very excited for Green:


What is going on here? They do this sort of backhand, pincer-finger high five thingy together, but then Maldonado persists in an animated — and seemingly angry — way, ultimately taking what appears to be a shot at Green’s gonads, which Green has to deflect:


“Heweh, heweh, hew!”

Your guess is as good as mine, but my guess is that it’s a Voodoo curse blessing.

Watch your gonads.
