Getting Blanked is a baseball blog that generally features posts about baseball. We post animated GIFs when we’re especially starved for attention and/or pageviews. Our weekly “best of” GIFs post always include one exception that has nothing at all to do with the beautiful game of baseball.

Here are the best exceptions that we’ve posted during the 2012 seasons. You’re welcome, the few of you who will actually enjoy this.
