Everyone Wants to Make This Thriller

It has become a ubiquitous Internet meme, since Michael Jackson’s death everyone and their goofy cousin with a webcam has put up their version of the Thriller dance. Guess what, none of y’all are Michael and very few of you can dance. That doesn’t stop those in the sports world from trying to get involved too though.

First off is Matti Höylä, a Finnish goaltender who takes some time during warm-ups to showcase his dance moves for the crowd. He’s not too shabby considering he’s covered in bulky padding, but he loses points because doing the moonwalk is pretty easy on ice.

Then there is the LSU Tigers mascot Mike the Tiger who put together this video of himself dancing for the Capital One Mascot Challenge. It features special effects, an impressive mascot-sized red leather outfit and most importantly, the Tigers cheerleaders. That alone should be enough to sway you.

So, which one do you guys think is better, chime in with a comment below.

Cuz This is THRILLER

When you show up to a minor league game and get stuck in a rain delay, there isn’t much entertainment left for you. Unless you were at the Long Palm Beach Cardinals game the other day where Casey Mulligan, an infielder relief pitcher took to the field and did a damn fine Thriller dance. Replete with single batting glove, Mulligan goes all out, it’s just a shame that whoever is videotaping it is with a talkative annoying little kid. I wanna see the moves son! Just because you were born 20 years after the song came out doesn’t mean you have to ruin it for the rest of us.

The Cardinals would be smart to immediately reward Mulligan and bump him up a level.
