Shot Through The Heart


And you’re too late – Eduardo Nunez is on the way.

Okay, enough with the Bon Jovi crap. It’s really the wrong music for this GIFtasm from River Avenue Blues. More likely, you have circus music going through your head as you appreciate the beauty that is the infield-single-man-down. Though circus music doesn’t quite provide the correct background for the violence that was done to Ramiro Pena. Maybe something booming and a little whimsical. Maybe dancehall?

Also, whatever the soundtrack, this seems like a uniquely baseballish event. Maybe it’s just getting caught up in the glory, but doesn’t baseball seem like the best place to find iconic moments like this? I’m thinking of that baseball bouncing out of Ryan Raburn‘s glove, or the time Jose Canseco brained the ball over the wall, or maybe even that bird Randy Johnson killed.

Baseball: where ridiculous happens more often than any other sport.

If only the GIF was a half second longer so we could enjoy the angry spiking of the ball into the ground by the shortstop more. Nonetheless this is fantastic

Is that what that is? I thought it was a second error.

No can do. I made that GIF and the camera pans right immediately afterward.
