Minnesota Baseball's Epic Shaving Videobomb Capped a Historic Month for the Art
May was a biggie for videobombing: professional athletes, college ball clubs and a certain full-time Knicks fan all notched high-profile performances. This masterpiece, executed with subtle grace by Minnesota players during the fourth inning of a May 24th Big Ten Conference tournament game against Nebraska, actually sat virtually unnoticed on YouTube for a week, gathering dust until it was unearthed by Deadspin last Friday.
Though they would go on to lose the game 7-4, the Golden Gophers won where it mattered—by producing yet another elite videobomb in a month that had already churned out a remarkable number of unforgettable gems. Let's review.
Precocious, in a theatrical sense. Great way to start the month.
Their rivalry dates back nearly 20 years, and Spike got the upper hand in the latest chapter. Poetically, this occurred on the 18th anniversary of the pair's most famous incident.
The Bearcats finished the season 24-32, and yet the team shouldn't consider their year anything but a rousing success.
With all the subtlety of a rabid elephant, Panthers offensive tackle Jordan Gross manages to elicit a quick smile from his quarterback, who otherwise looked like his house had just burned down with a litter of puppies inside.
