Let’s all take an oath that Beyoncé lipsynced the national anthem. It’s TGIF – Thank GIF It’s Friday! The best GIFs of the week for January 25th, 2013.
This week TGIF features Chelsea soccer, Tom Brady being an idiot, guitar-playing basketball players, and a Canadian police chase.
SOCCER BALLBOYS HAVE A HAZARD-OUS JOB
Welcome to Ballboy-gate (yes, it’s a thing). Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is red-carded for doing what he does best – kicking things. However, this time he happened to kick a person. (Ooops?) In his defense, he just wanted to get the ball back in play quickly since they were down 2-0, and that dodgey ball boy chap is obviously stalling. Hazard was suspended three games, and the ballboy was also yellow-carded for flopping.
TOM BRADY ALSO WAS RED-CARDED
…for this cleat-first leg sweep of Baltimore’s Ed Reed that would’ve made the Cobra Kai Sensei proud. Brady apologized, but was still fined $10,000 by the NFL. What he SHOULD have been fined for was letting the referee tackle him as he tried to rush for a first down. To put this in perspective, 49ers running back Frank Gore was fined $10,500 for wearing illegal socks. Because fashion DON’TS are $500 worse than trying to take out someone’s knee cap.
THIS IS THE FACE WE ALL MADE…
…when former NFL quarterback JaMarcus Russell announced he wants to make a comeback. He’s currently over 300 lbs.
HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY
I have a dream, that one day…AHHHHHHH YEAH BOOTY SHAKE!!!!
MEANWHILE, IN CANADA
Crime rates are at their lowest since 1972.
SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT
But they have the best celebrations. Muteba Kidiaba, a goalkeeper for the DR Congo national team, is pretty fabulous here.
THIS WAS 49ers COACH JIM HARBAUGH’S REACTION…
…when he found out he’d be facing his brother, John Harbaugh, in the Superbowl, and we’d have to hear about it for two solid weeks.
ONE RULE STILL HOLDS TRUE IN BASKETBALL
The biggest benchwarmers on the team are also the biggest cheerleaders.
APPARENTLY, AT THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS…
Taylor Swift and Olivia Munn broke up. Taylor is dedicating her next album to it.
AT HIS INAUGURATION, PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTED ONE LAST LOOK…
See you all next week!
