Ryan Theriot disappearing into thin air depresses a lot of Giants fans. Not so much because of his contributions on the field, but mostly because he was by far the most GIFable player on the Giants. This is absolutely without question, but in case you need further evidence, may I present you with the below:
Expressive (via @baycityball):
Well, don’t be sad for too long, because I think Hunter Pence has more than stepped up to the weirdness plate (pun intended) by recently providing several very GIFable moments. Please keep in mind the season hasn’t even started yet. Yup – TIP OF THE ICEBERG.
Pence loves Paleo Diets. He crushes kale.
And he’s a total goober who isn’t afraid to be himself. Check out Hunter performing Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close” in his car. Or, you can just check out the GIFs and the crazy faces he makes. I’m pretty sure he was thinking, “Hm, what’s the LEAST flattering, and creepiest angle I can get while filming this?”:
In conclusion, don’t shed too many tears for the weirdly departed (Theriot and Brian Wilson) because I think Pence is exactly what the doctor ordered. I think we can expect to see a lot more GIFs from this man in the near future.
