Who Is This Dancing World Series “Groundsperson”?

Did you guys know that the World Series is actually a series of games and not just one final “Super Bowl” type of game at the end of baseball season? That fact is crazy both because it flies in the face of a misconception that we’ve all held, each and every one of us, for a large portion of our lives, and also because you think, oh yeah “series.” It makes sense because the name tells you that it’s a series. In fact the name tells you nothing else, other than “world.” Very sorry to destroy every single one of your minds like that at the beginning of the week, but now that we’ve gotten that fact straight we can move on. About this dancing groundsperson: I think we can first rule out that he is a groundsperson. “But he has a rake!” Yeah, ANYONE can buy a rake. Who’s the dummy now? “He has a rake.” Give it a rest. From what I can tell he is certainly too handsome to be a groundsperson and gets way too much air while doing the worm. But then, if not a baseball stadium groundsperson, who is he?!


  1. Professional dancer who was hired to get viral hits on non-sports blogs that love dancing videos.
  2. Streaker who was going to streak but then chickened out and just danced because he’s a professional dancer by day.
  3. A baseball player’s friend who the baseball player keeps around just because he likes to tell him to dance when they’re in crowds of people, and the guy always feels a little demeaned, but there have been a few times where the baseball player has been a really good friend to him so he kind of feels like he knows the “real” him.
  4. Guy who wanted to be a professional dancer but wasn’t good enough so now he’s a groundskeeper.
  5. Regular groundskeeper.

A great mystery for America’s greatest pastime! GO PHILLIES! (Thanks for the tip, werttrew.)
