It’s the Fourth of July, which means things are a lot slower on the world wide web today. We’re celebrating this most joyous occasions, or nursing our Canada Day hangovers, in the only manner we know of… A GIF COMPILATION POST.

This is Getting Blanked’s collection of the best GIFs from the first half of the 2013 season. These are all GIFs created in-house by your dear author, Scott Johnson, and theScore.com news hounds. Thus, there will be no GIFs of Yu Darvish throwing several baseballs at once, or Clint Hurdle chewing 48 pieces of gum with nine different jaws. Just some good old fashioned fancy moving pictures.

It must be weird to have a professional athlete in your family. Brandon Crawford‘s family showed up at PNC Park in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, it wasn’t to watch Crawford and his San Francisco Giants. They were there to witness Gerrit Cole‘s Major League debut, just like everyone else.

Crawford’s sister, Amy (black sleeveless shirt, enormous gold watch, face twisted in confusion), is fan of both the Giants and Pirates, as her brother plays for the World Series champions and her boyfriend just happens to be fellow UCLA alum and MLB debutante Gerrit Cole. This helps explain the conflicted look on her face as she applauds her brother’s single, which came at the expense of her partner.

“It’s my two favorite teams, and he’s totally my brother, I dunno”. Look, Amy, you don’t have to keep up appearances because your mom is sitting beside you. You root for your boyfriend ahead of your older brother. Just think of all the torment you surely suffered at the hands of your older brother who also happens to be a world-class athlete. You can’t pick your family, Amy. Go with your heart.
