GIF: Matt Adams Love Taps Reds Fan, Internet Explodes


How was Matt Adams passed up by the Pirates, but drafted by the Cardinals? Guess it’s just bad luck.

Our Matt Adams obsession has reached legendary levels.  But this Reds fan wins the internet today.  Seriously, is this really a push as some of the headlines state today? Hell no. It was more of a yeh, you win man.  You dick.  Come on, this is hardly a ‘push’ or a ‘shove.’

I was expecting to see a skinny Reds fan neck being snapped.  All I got was a swat with Adams first base mans glove.

However, take a look at the madness we found in a three minute search.  It’s hard to believe really.

Or how about this ESPN tweet. Shove? Come on.

We are going with the word love tap.  It was a moment.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Matt Adams is a PA guy.  A my hometown, Philipsburg, Pennsylvania guy.  It sucks that he is going to get asked questions about this today.  Especially since the Cardinals are playing the Pirates tonight.  All the Bucs need is a pissed off Adams swatting Cole fastballs into the rainy Pittsburgh night.
