MUST WATCH: Detroit Tigers Play High-Stakes ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ & It’s Hilarious
Everyone is an idiot at heart. It's a universal truth. We all go about our days, getting dressed for work and buying our Starbucks and putting on an air of adulthood and professionalism while we do the "important" tasks we have assigned ourselves in order to facilitate productive lives.
But deep down we know. We know that we're really only a bachelors degree and maybe an overpriced apartment removed from the teenagers and college kids we once were; drinking cheap booze and daring each other to jump off our parents' balconies. And worse still, we know that those kids are bubbling just beneath the surface of our thin, adult facades; and that it doesn't take much to draw them out.
So please keep that in mind and don't be too hard on yourself when you laugh your ass off watching this Justin Verlander Instagram video of grown men taking "rock, paper, scissors" to the next level in the Tigers' clubhouse.

In case you need any clarification on what you just saw: Ian Kinsler threw scissors and Jose Iglesias threw paper. If you know the rules, you'll know that scissors cut paper, so in this verison of the game, Kinsler got to thump Iglesias over the head with an empty water jug. Naturally.
Didn't catch all that? Or perhaps you want the extended cut? I've got you covered. Here's the whole showdown from Miguel Cabrera's POV:

His laughter is so joyful, as am I. Because yes, I do indeed find this to be hilarious.
Thank you, Tigers players. It's comforting to be reminded every once in a while that we're not the only immature, weirdos who act like dumb asses with our friends sometimes. You're all heroes in my book.
