GIFS: The Blue Jays Go Crazy After Punching Their Ticket to the ALCS

The Toronto Blue Jays are heading to the ALCS – for the second straight year – after sweeping the Texas Rangers in three straight games. Let that sink in for a moment.

The Blue Jays just dispatched the best team in the American League during the regular season, winning three consecutive games. The Blue Jays just punched their ticket to the ALCS; the Texas Rangers are going home.

In Game 5, the Rangers of the regular season finally did arrive, but the Blue Jays had a little help in the way of a few defensive plays to push the Blue Jays into the next round of the playoffs. And rightfully so, they freaked out in these GIFS below.


Josh Donaldson’s reaction after crossing home plate is so good.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Texas Rangers will have a lot to think about for the next six months.

The dugout reaction shots are always so good. You can always tell which players are most eager to run into the scrum.

Russell Martin has never been so happy to hit into a ground ball.

And then he did his best to Kevin Pillar, but got tackled and piled on.


And remember Officer Navarro from last year? Well, he’s back on the force.
