There’s a lot going on here:
- Cubs color commentator Jim Deshaies reacts with a highly appropriate, “Oh shit!”
- Bryant is unfortunately one of the few guys not wearing the ”Phantom of the Opera” batting helmet.
- Bryant’s helmet cartoonishly spins around one full rotation, stays on his head and finishes almost perfectly in the forward facing position
- He never leaves his feet. If I took a 96 MPH fastball to the coconut, I’m making them carry me out of there like Maximus at the end of “Gladiator”.
