Rugby player misses hi-five, hits himself in the face
A Super Rugby match between the Hurricanes and Blues concluded with a bungled celebration.
While celebrating after a try, Ray Lee-Lo of the Wellington, New Zealand-based Hurricanes offered an excited dap to teammate Blade Thomson.
Slow-motion technology forever captures moments like these at their laughable best: Lee-Lo leads with his right hand, seemingly going for the low-five, and then gets nothing but chest. You feel for Thomson, who is forced, uncomfortably, to swing upward. We've all been in these situations. It is awkward.
Predictably, Thomson gets himself in the face by the time it's all said and done. Not quite sure what he was doing with a two-finger hi-five, but we'll let it slide. Sports, guys.
