Glorious GIF: Baseball's "Butt-Slide Of The Year"

Giving many of us looking to spice up our sports-themed nights a brand new idea is this GIF that Fox Sports has dubbed the "butt-slide of the year." (Sorry, Miley. Maybe next year!)

The hottest play in the MLB this year is thanks to Houston Astro Jonathan Villar and Cincinnati Red Brandon Phillips who've taught us all that getting a running start can be a good thing, as long as you're wearing protective head gear. 

"That's the way I play," Villar told The Associated Press. "I'm aggressive. I was trying to make something happen, motivate my team. It's hard to change because that's the way I've always played."

And we have a new favorite MLB star.
