Nomar Being Nomar

Nomar Garciapara takes a page out of his playing days with the Chicago Cubs, not the Boston Red Sox, as he throws up the all powerful shielding right arm and cuddles up to ESPN commentator Dave O’Brien. And he thought fans would stop mocking him once his playing career was over.

By the way, is that Pat Borders behind him? Look at the way that champ gets in front of the ball and blocks it with his chest. There are several current Major League catchers that could learn a thing or two from this guy.

As usual, 20 frames per second of slow clapping to for the animated gif.
