Everth Cabrera and Yasmani Grandal Use Rain Tarp as Slide-n-Slide (GIF)
Most of us have to settle for watching reruns of Mama’s Family during a Major League Baseball rain delay, but Everth Cabrera and Yasmani Grandal of the San Diego Padres got to do something at least a little more fun (how much more depends on your opinion of Mama’s Family). They used the giant rain tarp for a slip-n-slide.
It happened during a storm prior to last night’s game between the Padres and the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, and it was a classic example of making the most out of a bad situation. It also shows the benefits of a particularly long slip-n-slide, as both Cabrera and Grandal were able to gather some terrific speed as they slid down the tarp.
The slippery duo were eventually made to leave their watery playground (adjectives are fun, right?) by the Phillies’ ground crew, but below is a GIF showing a particularly long slide by Cabrera:
