Russell Martin Attempts Difficult Catch, Fails Hilariously

The Blue Jays won their ninth game in a row on Tuesday night against the A's and are looking pretty incredible and basically at this point all we should want in the world is to see a Blue Jays vs. Royals playoff series...but that's not what we're here to talk about tonight.
Sure the Blue Jays have just been outstandingly entertaining to watch of late, but Russell Martin takes the cake with his insane, unnecessarily aggressive attempt to catch a foul ball over the dugout in Tuesday night's game. You're seriously not going to be able to stop watching it.
That is so amazing on every level. This is a legitimate contender for top five baseball Vine of the season for so many reasons.
1. It was in the 1st inning, so the stakes could not have been any lower or the extreme effort any less necessary.
2. His realization that he overshot the catch comes just a second too late so he does that hilarious cartoon leg-flailing fall into the dugout.
3. His team mates sitting on the bench literally don't move at all. They are clearly very much not on Russell's level.
4. The Blue Jays are really good and so is Russell Martin so you don't have to feel bad for laughing at his epic fail.
5. I can now make this into a #DoinTooMuch GIF that I will use until the end of time. That's a promise.
Sometimes the internet is a terrible, scary place. Then sometimes a sports Vine comes along that gives you life and reminds you that it's all worth it. Now we just need to get this man on American Ninja Warrior.
