Request-a-GIF: Eric Young Falls, Gets Back Up Mostly

It is, generally speaking, the policy of this website not to use the misfortunes of others as a means to the end of our own personal and/or collective glory — and it’s for that reason which, generally speaking, the request for such a GIF as follows (of Colorado Rockies utility gentleman Eric Young stumbling elaborately) would be summarily denied.

In this particular case, however, an exception has been made, on account of the suppliant in question (a certain Dave, in this case) has submitted his request from an email address at Loughborough University in Leicestershire, UK.

Is Dave an actual student, or faculty member, of Loughborough University? “Doesn’t matter,” is the only possible response. That he has made the effort to create a foreign — and therefore pleasantly mysterious — email account is both halves of this particular battle.

Now here, presented sans reservation, is Eric Young stumbling around first base in the fifth inning of the Rockies’ 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday (box).

He always lands on his feet. Like a cat.

There’s a nickname in there somewhere, I’m just too tired to flesh it out.

I want to know who the cheerleader dancing like a schoolgirl in the dugout is behind him.

Yes. This calls us to a separate issue. Here are the results of a survey conducted in my personal brain in .005 seconds.

Clapping: Standard Behavior
Jumping: Enthusiastic but still fairly standard

I like how he was still trying to run in mid-air

Also, did anyone else read that University as Low-Brow?
