Introducing: LOLGammos by Eric June 9, 2011 Like my NotGraphs comrade Carson, I am a Peter Gammons pocket tweet enthusiast. I am also a firm believer in using images to convey emotion at key junctures in baseball games. Which made me think: Why not combine Peter Gammons tweets with images (of Peter Gammons) that can be used to convey emotions at key junctures in baseball games? It’s perfect! After all, there is a large untapped market for image macros on the web. So, with that, I am proud to unveil to the world a select sampling of LOLGammos. I encourage you all to make a meme of it. Meaning: create two, three, many LOLGammos! Old Favorites: 1. Emotion: sadness/disappointment Example of proper in-game deployment: Your team is down one run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. The bases are loaded and your best hitter at the plate. He works a full count and…strikes out looking. 2. Emotion: non-chalance (Is this really an emotion? I don’t even know.) Example of proper in-game deployment: Your team’s centerfielder has just made an extremely difficult play on a deep flyball look easy. He casually flips the ball into the stands and trots into the dugout looking cooler than a polar bear’s toe nails. 3. Emotion: confusion Example of proper in-game deployment: A member of the opposing team hits a liner in the gap that rolls all the way to the base of the wall and gets stuck under the outfield padding. The outfielders signal for a ground rule double, but the umpires refuse to grant it. The outfielders continue to signal, all the while being denied and allowing the hitter to complete a inside-the-park home run. New arrivals: 4. Emotion: relief Example of proper in-game deployment: Your team’s star first baseman leaves the game under mysterious circumstances in the third inning. After a half an hour, the beat writers tweet in unison that it is just a case of diarrhea. (Special credit on this doozie to my The Good Phight blog lord, Whole Camels.) 5. Emotion: jubilation Example of proper in-game deployment: Your team won.
