Sometimes there are celebrities, athletes, political figures — whoever — that you just wish you were friends with. The whole San Francisco Giants team makes me feel like we’ve been best friends forever. Fun-loving guys like Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval make you laugh at their silliness while Sassy Buster Posey and Incredulous Madison Bumgarner act as your responsible friends who watch over the group when they are acting a fool. Everyone plays their role and Together We Are All Besties.
I’ve picked out a couple key moments in 2013 that made me really happy that I get to “hang out” with my “friends” 162 days a year.
Hector Sanchez isn’t afraid to show his tender (or creepy) side when showing Guillermo Moscoso show hair-twirling affection.
I think the only person sorry to see Jeff Francoeur go was Matt Cain, evidenced by this GIF. I mean, it’s adorable but not adorable enough to watch Francoeur ground out to the same spot over and over again. Still, I love the buddy system.
Supporting one another
If you saw this scrum with no context, you might assume this is just another GIF from the World Series win. Nope – this celebrates one man’s success: Tim Linceum during his no-hitter. This kind of joy can’t be faked. Just look at how happy everyone is for the little guy..
These guys are total dorks. The fake slow-motion punch? CLASSIC. I also appreciate Romo’s dedication to his craft – eyes rolled back in the head and his jump was timed perfectly. You can bet this wasn’t the first time they’ve done this.
You can’t win a championship without friendship and teamwork. Look at Angel Pagan grab a heavy jug of water just to make sure Pablo Sandoval won’t have to get up after a jaunt around the bases. I mean, is this love or what?
