Hot GIF Action: Blue Jays Bunny Hop

In the great game of baseball, when a pitcher and his catcher are in sync, that’s when the magic happens. And by “the magic,” I mean, in this case, a 3-0 Toronto whitewash of the Baltimore Orioles. Ricky Romero and J.P. Arencibia, they’re in sync. I mean, as evidenced above, really  in sync.

At first glance, it looks like the umpire is about to get in on the bunny hopping action, too. But, alas, he doesn’t, thus rendering this hot GIF very slightly less awesome than it is.

May Ricky and J.P. hop together forever.

Addendum: While the umpire didn’t get in on the action, Jose Bautista did, at third base, leaping to successfully grab a line drive off the bat of Baltimore’s Blake Davis on this very play. Obviously, Romero and Arencibia willed Joey Bats to the ball.

Bunny hops in the direction of @james_in_to. His animated GIFs make the world a better place, and you can find them, mostly Blue Jays related, at blue jays bits.

      All four! In the angle where Jose catches it, Yunel Escobar does his own leap as well. Sadly there’s no shot of all of them at once.
