The above GIF was created by the lovely and talented Scott Lewis—a man to which the words ‘long weekend’ clearly do not apply. It depicts Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine telling umpire Gary Darling that he’ll be back later…with his gun.
Valentine was ejected from the game after arguing with Darling over a close call at first base in the top-of-the-ninth of the Phillies-Red Sox game last night. During the argument, Darling started yelling back at Valentine and accidently spit his gum on to what appears to be Valentine’s face. Comedy ensues.
The Phillies would go on to win the game, their sixth in a row, 6-4 and former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon picked up the save.
