ADAM JONES AND THE WALL

Adam Jones can be a funny guy

CALEB JOSEPH'S HEADS-UP PLAY

Caleb-joseph-head-up-play_medium

The slo-mo doesn't really do justice to how quickly Caleb Joseph sprung up, grabbed this ball with a sure hand, and threw to first for the out.

ONE OF THESE FANS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS

Os-fan-kings-court_medium

Looks like there is an interloper in the King's Court section of Safeco Field, where everybody (or almost everybody) cheers for more Ks from Felix Hernandez. This was from the Mariners feed, where the broadcasters seemed quite tickled about this guy.

FIST SLAP

Chen-fist-slap_medium

It's where you hold your fist up, and your friend slaps it with gusto to celebrate something. Here Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez are celebrating a home run from Chris Davis to break a tie in extra innings. Chris Tillman only has enough energy for a few claps before collapsing over the rail.

HAPPY CLAPPING GUY

Os-fan-clapping-for-cd-hr_medium

This is also after that Chris Davis home run. I just like the contrast between this guy and everybody else in frame. He's sitting there just clap, clap, clap, clapping away in his seat. It's a restrained celebration amidst the home team fans. No hollering, high fives, fist bumps, or fist slaps here.

Mariners fans are seen muttering something, making slightly pained expressions or breaking out the phones. Even this guy's companion, who is presumably an Orioles fan, doesn't seem particularly happy. Maybe she's relieved this game might end? She only signed up for nine innings.

MORE FANS IN SEATTLE

Fans-in-seattle-loop_medium

Third in a row Chris Davis home run reaction GIF! Got some more Orioles fans here. The kid is wearing an OPACY giveaway floppy hat under the normal baseball cap? In the background are a couple of Mariners fans who seem in reasonably good spirits and comforting each other with a squeeze. There are some more blank stares. Then a girl with a face palm for the duration. Orioles fans have been there, sister. Oh, we've been there.

STEVE PEARCE'S DIVING CATCH

Sometimes people want more hot sports action and not all of the shenanigans that I like to GIF. You're just talkin' about #TEAMSTEVE? Then I can dig it.
