This comes to us via the frontpage of We’d go back and look for this moment in the game tape, but we are afraid that the action shot will prove this missed high-five is not BJ Upton’s fault. And we don’t want to live in a world where something is not Upton’s fault.

Let’s start the bidding at: “Even Tiger Woods Thinks This Is Awkward”

What you got?



  1. MJ says:

    Ha. I don’t think he missed though. If u watch the tape I’m pretty sure u hear the connection. He gave a short but powerful gangsta high five. Roll the tape.

  2. Gatorbuc15 says:

    Even Yogi can’t come up with an “ism” for this.

  3. d-money says:

    Hey BJ can you get this booger off of my finger?

  4. Bob says:

    Pinky Swear Five!

  5. Adam W says:

    “Hey Sean, pinkie promise we’ll get some ice cream after this?”

  6. Gatorbuc15 says:

    And by touching this pressure point you nullify your ability to think for yourself. Believe me, it comes in handy.

  7. Gatorbuc15 says:

    What the hell?! I only asked you to pull my finger!

  8. Gatorbuc15 says:

    They have revealed the secret handshake! Tell the master — they must be destroyed!

  9. Cindy says:

    BJ thats not the way we do “high 5″ now a days!

  10. Mike says:

    BJ Upton mistakes Sean Rodriguez’ hand for a fastball, whiffs.

  11. Namirsolo says:

    It’s not a missed high-five, it’s a secret handshake.

  12. John says:

    “Now, stick out your pinkie…a little more…little more….little more…there ya go! Hook ‘em, ‘Horns!”

  13. Beth says:

    It’s the “neighborhood play” – a high five that avoids injury.

  14. brayzer says:

    Damn, Sean, is that all you got? Look how big MINE is!

  15. Mark says:

    BJ- “I bet i can get picked off”
    Sean- “Your on”

  16. Dre says:

    BJ – think only reason i am making this lame attempt is because they caught me last month blowing off jaso’s high five attempt.

  17. Ragin Rick says:

    the ball just sliced right off of cervillis head like this.

  18. Nick says:

    Reason #1 why B.J. will never be able to achieve Carl’s level of excellence:

    “I wouldn’t be where I am today without the fist bump.” – Carl Crawford, Rays Outfielder

  19. Amanda says:

    Shawn and BJ’s attempt to activate their Wonder Twin powers goes horribly wrong.
