Oh I loved that game… sat around wallowing in joygasm from the start of the first inning. :D

Was there a broom involved? It looks nothing like curling to me. That is what all the brooms are about, No?

We already know the Wankees and their fans are petulant assholes. Why is this so awesome?

Is the baseman supposed to ‘give it up’ or not?

I assume that giving it up or not is for the baseman to decide. I am pretty sure he has priorities and will act accordingly.

Can someone explain this to a non-US citizen?
(not just why this is funny, but what happens in the first place?)

Its just not cricket!

Also, yeah, must be an American thing.
I don’t get it either – the humour apparently here or baseball.

I’m an American, and I don’t get it.

It appears that Cabrera was attempting to get a five from Cano as he was rounding the bases. I would never have expected or prompted someone on the opposing team to five me after I just homered off of them, in the same manner as you don’t stand at the plate and watch a home run ball leave the yard. It was idiotic of Cabrera and I think Cano was right to leave him hanging. I might have offered Cabrera a certain finger in return, but that would have been all.

The key piece of additional information needed to interpret this scene is that Cano and Cabrera became (and remain) close friends when Cabrera was a Yankee. This is why Cabrera offered for the five in the first place, and why Cano smirked at him instead of looking at him like he was a lunatic. It’s also worth recognizing that the players consider the All Star Game purely an exhibition game, and don’t give a shitte about what happens so long as they don’t get injured. So this incident boils down to Cabrera and Cano joking around with each other during a meaningless game.
