OK, maybe the 4th one is not a keeper. Other than that.

Well, not the fat guys dancing, but some of those were pretty cool. I especially like the jerk-off guy in #1 and the leap over the tacklers in #11. The highs and lows of sports, folks.

I think it started with the Texas player saluting the Marine.

mitchcumstein1: Lakers Sports Bros is the best gif of the year.

Lakers Sports Bros in reverse is the best gif of all time.

Can we all turn against GIF's again in 2013? Please? Not that I don't love my browser window taking 3 minutes to load like it's 1998 all over again, just saying, maybe we don't need 15 animations on every web page? I kind of thought we all voted on this when abandoning MySpace?

Butt fumble is pretty good, but I never saw the "Sanchez flinch" one until recently. I really don't think a few more years of college would have made Sanchez better, he's just a mediocre QB.

#6 looked expensive ... well, not to someone making a MLB salary but to me anyway...
They missed the best one of the year (although it was mentioned in the comments) the one gorgeous sprinter(?) bouncing around before her Olympic race.  Many a kitten my friends, many a kitten.

Maybe you could upgrade? it took my browser @ 10 seconds.

Or check the Deslide link above - it goes much quicker than the actual link that consists of YO DAWG I HERD U LIEK GIFS AND U LIEK THUMBNAILS SO WE PUT GIF THUMBNAILS FOR YOUR GIFS you get the idea.

They just upped it a few months ago. It used to be, we couldn't post gifs at all.

And where is our King of Gifs, libranoelrose?

People like GIFs because sites like Fark don't allow embedded video.

I don't ever remember a time when you couldn't post GIFs. They had to be small, but they were allowed.

There were so many better "sports" gifs available. At least they named it "sports-themed" gifs. *sigh*

Why is Brady saying "Fark you biatches?"

Fails without butt fumble.

Galileo's Daughter: Why is Brady saying "Fark you biatches?"


It was right after the Pats scored the TD to tie the game in a close one against the Bills. After that he went full Brady and threw a few more TD passes. His cursing caused the Pats to win 52-28

Buttfumble is the last one, butt it's there.

I can never get tired of butt fumble. I've stared at that one over and over again.

It looks like they only used ones they claim they made.

How are you guys missing the butt fumble?

It's the last one.

Right, it's basically "bubbaprog's list of the favorite GIFs he made in 2012."

I eat mop: the only sports gif from this year that matters


Not the only one, but by far one of the top.

Nothing, NOTHING, tops butt fumble.
 
2012-12-30 09:41:59 AM
Look! We caught Rob Ryan and Tom Brady saying the F-word on camera. Can you believe pro football players sometimes curse???!!!

The Wil Myers GIF and the one with the Arkansas guy hurdling two tacklers are pretty good.

Now this is a cool GIF. So is this.

My favorite of a manager getting snubbed.

I'm not 100%, but it appears the Texas player tried to salute a Gunnery Sergeant. I'm guessing the Gunny's reaction was him politely explaining you don't salute enlisted Marines.

Butt fumble is great, but the gif doesn't show the Shane Falco like hand off attempt that preceded the butt fumble.
