This GIF Pretty Much Sums Up Game 1 of the World Series for the Detroit Tigers

If you didn’t happen to see Game 1 of the World Series last night, you didn’t exactly miss a classic October baseball game.

It was pretty clear very early on that the Giants were still on a roll coming off their big comebacks against the Reds and Cardinals, with Pablo Sandoval, a.k.a. the Kung Fu Panda, becoming only the fourth player ever to hit three home runs in a World Series game.

As for the Tigers, it was equally clear that they were a little bit rusty from their long layoff after sweeping the hapless Yankees in the ALCS. Not only did Kate Upton’s boyfriend, Justin Verlander, a.k.a. the best pitcher in baseball, give up two of those homers to the Kung Fu Panda, but the rest of the Tigers were also pretty shaky on defense.

So, yeah, things didn’t go so well for Detroit, and they got pounded 8-3. And if you wanted to sum up their night in one single animated GIF, this here would be the one:

Yep. Nice throw, Delmon Young. I’m sure it gave poor Tigers fans ugly flashbacks of the 2006 World Series, when their pitchers suddenly lost the ability to field ground balls and throw them to first base, and the Cardinals basically bunted their way to their 10th World Series Championship.

Hopefully the Tigers get their act together for Game 2 and make a series of it.
